Montpellier Hérault Rugby – MHR – is a professional rugby club that plays in the Top 14. Based at GGL Stadium, it has been investing for over 10 years in services and technologies to enrich the spectator experience and enable them to experience matches at the heart of the action.
On-site catering, live & replay video, payment cards and dematerialized ticketing all contribute to a revisited fan experience.
The MHR wanted to offer a video replay solution enabling spectators, wherever they were in the stadium, to watch the action again from their preferred viewing angle.
The deployed solution
In 2016, the club adopted the VOGOSPORT solution dedicated to fans, initially via a standalone smartphone application sponsored by La Caisse d’Epargne Languedoc-Roussillon. Then it integrated VOGOSPORT into its official MHR application, for a single access point to all the Club’s digital services. VOGOSPORT video streams are initially broadcast to the grandstands and hospitality areas via a dedicated wifi network set up by VOGO. Today, broadcasting is done via 4G/5G networks, with a geo-localization tool integrated into VOGOSPORT PULSE, which guarantees exclusive broadcasting within the stadium.
At the same time, the MHR has set up a large VOGOSPORT touchscreen in the Trophies Room for post-match entertainment: a former player uses the VOGOSPORT solution to tag the best moments of the match and provide a tactical analysis for VIP guests at the end of the match. The screen can also be used to introduce them to the basic rules of rugby before a match.

Rugby is a sport with complex rules and faults that are difficult to detect for non-experts. VOGOSPORT PULSE lets you review the action from a relevant angle, in slow motion, to better understand the referee’s decisions.Mathieu Charpentier,
