Clear-Com Empowers Seamless Communication Experience at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego

Clear-Com®, the industry leader in communication systems for sports and entertainment, played a pivotal role in enhancing communication capabilities at the state-of-the-art Snapdragon Stadium, which opened in 2022 and is owned by San Diego State University and managed by OVG360.

Snapdragon Stadium, located within SDSU Mission Valley, serves as a year-round sports and entertainment destination and a hub of community engagement. Home to SDSU Aztec Football, San Diego Wave FC of the National Women’s Soccer League, San Diego Legion of Major League Rugby and the newly announced MLS team, San Diego FC, the venue hosts a myriad of events, including concerts, festivals, motocross shows, international sporting events, championships, community events, private and corporate events, and more. Notably, Snapdragon Stadium has emerged as a favored venue for the US Women’s National Soccer Team. Since its opening, the facility has hosted multiple ‘friendlies’ and is currently a key venue for the CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup. Clear-Com’s communication solutions contribute to the success of these events, enhancing the overall experience for athletes, performers, and fans alike.

Snapdragon Stadium’s cutting-edge communication infrastructure, featuring Clear-Com’s advanced equipment, plays a pivotal role in addressing diverse needs associated with its status as a multi-use facility for both sports and entertainment. The heart of Snapdragon Stadium’s communication infrastructure lies in the deployment of Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak II® digital wireless system combined with Encore® analog partyline elements, providing a robust and reliable communication platform that ensures seamless coordination during various events hosted at the 35,000-seat multipurpose venue.

Ceci Bacerra, Manager, AV & Broadcast at Snapdragon Stadium, expressed their satisfaction with Clear-Com’s solutions, stating, “Many sporting teams, shows, and concerts travel with Clear-Com equipment that can easily integrate into our house system. Their online portal makes it user-friendly and easy to configure for each event and the specific needs that may arise.”

In the control room, the deployment includes the Encore Main Station, a mix of 4 channel and 2 channel  Remote Stations, and Encore Speaker Stations in U-Box. For remote beltpacks and interfacing needs, the venue relies on five Encore RS-701 Single Channel beltpacks and the Encore MT-701 for interfacing with external systems. The FreeSpeak II digital wireless system, comprising the FreeSpeak II-BASE-II Base Station, Transceivers, Splitters, and beltpacks, offers unparalleled flexibility. The 1.9GHz product provides the necessary range and flexibility for beltpacks to seemlessly roam anywhere in the facility, covering sidelines, the bowl, control room, locker rooms, and dock areas. Clear-Com’s advanced technology ensures a robust and reliable communication network, underscoring their commitment to technical excellence in sports and entertainment venues.

The system’s ability to seamlessly integrate into Snapdragon Stadium’s infrastructure and adapt to the diverse requirements of sporting events, concerts, and other entertainment productions showcases Clear-Com’s leadership in communication systems for sports and entertainment. The company’s reputation for delivering reliable and innovative solutions played a crucial role in the selection process, ensuring that the venue is equipped with the latest technology to meet the communication demands of its diverse events.
