Wycombe Wanderers plays in League 1 of the English Football League, having spent the 2020/21 campaign in the second tier of the football pyramid. Previously owned in full by its Supporters Trust from 2012-19, the club received investment in 2019 from majority shareholder Rob Couhig, an American businessman, who now owns 75% of the club, with the Trust retaining 25%. With proud roots within its local community, and a growing appeal worldwide, Rob Couhig’s acquisition of the club has been a driving factor for significant digital transformation at Adams Park.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the club engaged Landways to design, fund and install new systems to help realise owner Rob Couhig’s ambitious vision for a great match day experience.

With the welcome return of fans to Adams Park, all visitors now enjoy a new, concert-quality digital audio system throughout the stadium, high-performance Wi-Fi, and a number of new systems to improve ground safety and security – all supported by a long-life digital and power infrastructure delivering guaranteed levels of performance.
