Two-way radios & stadium management

Company News

Many people don’t realise just how much staff in stadiums rely on two-way radios. There’s a lot more going on at stadiums then you might think. It’s not just big events that are catered for, but smaller events and day to day running of the stadium also rely on two-way radios. If you are managing a stadium then you have to worry about several different things at once, from security staff to stadium maintenance staff and guests that are on the premises. It requires a lot of organisation and open communication, and that’s where radios come in.

Features needed for Stadium Management

Two-way radios for stadiums need to have certain features in order to cater to the needs of running events and managing large crowds of people. Some staff have their radios with them all day long, and actually cover quite a lot of ground, so their radio needs to be fairly lightweight and comfortable to use.

Noise is also a huge issue when it comes to communicating in large stadiums. During a concert or sports game, noise levels can go through the roof, making it hard to give and receive instructions. This is why radios used in stadiums need to have noise cancellation, so that staff can always hear each other.

Noise cancellation means that no matter how loud the background noise is, your voice can still be heard via the radio, and you can still hear what your colleagues are saying. This is absolutely crucial in high pressure situations and whilst managing large crowds, as things can quickly get out of control. Lives can be at risk and reliable, fast communication can make the difference between a crisis and a well managed situation.

Radios used for stadium management also need to be very robust, as they get used for hours on end, and can easily get knocked or bashed in crowds. Reliable radios are a must when you are trying to keep everyone inside a large stadium safe and under control.

Another thing to consider when using two way radios to manage stadiums is transmission quality and range. Radio signals need to be able to transmit from one end of a very large stadium to another. The signal often needs to pass through concrete walls, and also an enormous amount of noise.

Different teams often function within a stadium, so it’s handy if each team has its own channel. For example, the security team may be on one channel, the parking on another and the hospitality and catering team on another. All these channels can then be managed via a central control system.
