We are on our way to Wembl-EE: Wembley and EE announce partnership

EE and Wembley Stadium have entered into a six-year partnership - but, rest assured, there are no plans to change the name of England's iconic football stadium.

The partnership will bring technology investment, with EE saying that on the road map is enhanced 4G coverage, as well as high-speed Wi-Fi, so you'll never struggle to tweet that winning goal photo.

Closer to home there is now an EE app for Android and iOS that will give details on fixtures and events, see the view from your seat, and give you travel directions.

If you're an EE customer you'll be able to get access to England tickets 48 hours before they go on sale to the general public, as well as other giveaways.

"We are extremely proud to announce our partnership with Wembley Stadium. At EE, we are always looking for new ways to enhance digital lives across the UK and this groundbreaking deal allows us to extend the same vision and passion to the country's national stadium," said Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE.

"Over the coming months, we will announce an exciting programme of upgrades and innovations to the existing infrastructure at Wembley that will ensure the stadium offers visitors a world-class spectator experience for many years to come."

The newly built 90,000-seat stadium opened in 2007, and the first event under the new partnership will be the Capital One Cup Final on 2 March 2014.

The deal extends beyond the stadium, with EE becoming a supplier to the England football team and the FA Cup too.
