EE - Wembley Stadium

Forget facepaint and flags, sports fans at Wembley Stadium are soon going to be able to show support for their team during matches using… social media.

Yeah, we know – so far, so dry, BUT this isn’t going to be a boring poll on a screen. Fans are going to be able to control the lights on the stadium’s huge arch.

More than 200 large LED floodlights have been fitted to the stadium, stretching the length of five Olympic swimming pools. They can create millions of colour combinations and will react to crowd noise, goals scored and social media sentiment. #winning
