Sprint’s new wireless system at Kauffman Stadium now on-air

By Adrienne Norton

It feels like just yesterday we were watching the Kansas City Royals fight it out in the post-season for their first time in 29 years. Following such a phenomenal campaign, and in anticipation of another exceptional season, Royals fans will be pleased to know that Sprint has deployed a new wireless system at Kauffman Stadium.

On-air just in time for Opening Day on April 6, Sprint’s new Distributed Antenna System (DAS) will enable fans to better capture and share some of this year’s biggest moments in baseball. With a seating capacity of 37,903, Sprint – a longtime sponsor of the hometown Royals – is the only wireless carrier serving The K with a DAS. Sprint’s extensive system provides voice and data service throughout the entire stadium utilizing all three of Sprint’s spectrum bands (1.9GHz, 2.5GHz and 800MHz).

This is just one of the many improvements both big and small that we’re making to the Sprint network in Kansas City. Service gets better every day, and we’re excited to be in the game at Kauffman Stadium.
