Facility Notes

The Colts are partnering with Verizon Wireless to "boost the Wi-Fi capacity at Lucas Oil Stadium by 300%." A new system is "designed to perform in dense environments, and will be available to about 75% of fans for Sunday's Colts home opener" against the Falcons. The 600 level will see "Wi-Fi improvements later in the season." The upgrade will cost about $7M (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 9/18).

ALL OF THE LIGHTS: Ahead of the Chiefs-Chargers game at Mexico City's Estadio Azteca on Nov. 18, the field is being treated with Dutch company SGL System's artificial light technology, which "simulates solar light." The tech is also used at European stadiums, including Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu. Last year's Week 11 game between the Chiefs and Rams had to be moved to L.A. due to problems with the playing field (LA AFICION, 9/18).
