The partnership will see a multi-million pound investment in the stadium’s technology facilities including enhanced 4G, superfast wi-fi, and the launch of a free app that will offer a feed of event content and information.

The heightened technology and connectivity will be made available to the stadium’s meeting spaces, which can facilitate a range of events including conferences, gala dinners, product launches and award ceremonies.

Melvin Benn, Wembley chairman, said: "We have been looking for the right partner to help us make sure that Wembley maintains its reputation for being one of the best sport and entertainment venues on the planet.

"As stadia around the world become increasingly more technologically advanced, EE is the perfect partner to assist us in fulfilling that goal, giving event owners and their fans the best possible and unforgettable shared experiences."

This is the first time in its history that Wembley Stadium has signed a partnership deal with a lead brand.

C&IT announced today that its C&IT Agency Forum will be held at Wembley Stadium, on 6-8 August 2014.
