Improving the Fan Experience with our New Westpac Stadium Mobile App

Eyemagnet is proud to announce the official launch of the all-new Westpac Stadium mobile application for iOS and Android!

Our software team has been working hard the past few months to design and develop a unique and feature-rich application to add to the Stadium's digital strategy. We've carefully crafted the app with the aim of being an essential event-day companion for all of the venue's passionate fans.

The app was launched just in time for the night of the 16th June, as a sold-out crowd had the pleasure of watching the mighty All Blacks take on France.

As self-proclaimed sports fans, we've been delighted to work alongside the Stadium to improve the venue experience for fans using our digital software expertise.

Westpac Stadium is New Zealand’s premiere multi-purpose outdoor sports and events facility. Situated in the heart of the region on the Wellington waterfront, the venue is an iconic landmark with seated capacity for 34,000 people. The Stadium is home to rugby, football, cricket and rugby league, as well as concerts, exhibitions and entertainment events.

Eyemagnet has a long-standing and successful relationship with Westpac Stadium, having delivered a full multicast IPTV network and site-wide high-capacity free public WiFi to the venue during the British & Irish Lions tour last year.

With the requirement to develop for both iOS and Android within a tight timeframe, we knew that React Native should be the framework of choice for this project. React Native is an open-source library started by Facebook which allows cross-platform development of mobile apps using JavaScript.

Our team used React Native to build a library of rich mobile UI elements, and we used these building blocks to rapidly compile native apps for both iOS and Android, indistinguishable from an app built using Swift/Objective-C or Java. React Native allows for high-performance development across platforms delivering a step above traditional "hybrid" webview-based apps.

During your next visit to Westpac Stadium, be sure to experience our digital venue solution by connecting to the free Stadium WiFi and downloading the all-new app.

Stay tuned for future updates & improvements as we continue to deliver unparalleled event day experiences for Westpac Stadium and all of Wellington's enthusiastic fans.

The Westpac Stadium mobile application is now available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play.
