Share Article

Bournemouth 7s Festival, the world’s largest sport and music festival, attracts 20,000 festival goers each year who enjoy a weekend of enthralling sport, live music and entertainment. This year, thanks to an official partnership with C4L, they will have the reassurance of secure WiFi for the smooth running of the event.

Because C4L has such a large, fast and highly resilient infrastructure already in place both locally and nationally, we are able to be extremely flexible in helping large events like this, deploying connections quickly and effectively.

Using a wireless Leased Line, courtesy of sponsors C4L, a local IT infrastructure company based in Westbourne, will provide the team at Bournemouth 7s with a secure WiFi system. With 20,000 people, 10 live arenas hosting resident DJ’s and live acts, plus a host of England & Wales International Rugby Stars attending, it is vitally important that a strong and secure Internet connection is available to the organisations throughout the event.

Bournemouth 7s are delighted to have a market leading company on board supporting their team over the Late May Bank Holiday Weekend event.

Roger Woodall, CEO of Diamond Sporting Group commented: “It is fantastic to have C4L on board for this year’s festival. They will add a huge amount of support over the Bournemouth 7s weekend and also to Diamond Sporting Group as a whole! From the very start, they have been a pleasure to deal with and we are very much looking forward to seeing this relationship continue to grow and the success it will bring in the future”.

Simon Mewett, CEO of C4L, said: “We are thrilled to sponsor this hugely successful local sporting event by providing high capacity connectivity from the Internet to the wireless infrastructure, this means the site, hosting 20,000 thousand attendees will have significantly improved internet connection, and hopefully the whole event can be much more interactive.”

“Because C4L has such a large, fast and highly resilient infrastructure already in place both locally and nationally, we are able to be extremely flexible in helping large events like this, deploying connections quickly and effectively and leveraging our technology expertise,” he continued.

C4L will also become the proud partner of the ever-exciting C4L Dodgeball Tournament and are a fantastic addition to the list of national and international brands that support Bournemouth 7s each year.
