Penn State Launches Beaver Stadium Mobile Site

Anyone who has ever been in Beaver Stadium on a football Saturday in the fall has experienced it.

You’re trying to send a timely text message to a friend, and you can’t get cell phone service. Talk about the ultimate #FirstWorldProblem.

Penn State is trying to fix this problem with the creation of a mobile site called Penn State Game Day, only available to fans in Beaver Stadium on Saturdays. In addition to game statistics, the site will also feature video replays and mobile food ordering through the use of a bypass lane. Additional details can be found here.

Once inside the stadium, Penn State Game Day can be accessed by following these three simple steps:

  1. Turn on your WiFi under settings and connect to Penn State’ free “attwifi.”
  2. Open your browser and accept the Terms and Conditions
  3. Visit www.gopsugd.com to enjoy the experience!

The big question left to answer is if the site can hold up when thousands of people are trying to utilize it at once from the same location. Wireless Internet in the stadium has been known to give both fans and media fits in the past, so we’ll see if this service holds up through the season.
