Vindico’s SWAPP at Principality Stadium has been shortlisted in for Venue Technology at the 2023 TheStadiumBusiness Awards
TheStadiumBusiness Awards are the only awards to recognise a whole spectrum of achievements from across the global stadium industry.
And, as a company at the forefront of tech and innovation in the stadia sector, we couldn’t be happier to be recognised with our partner, Principality Stadium, in the Venue Technology category this year.
We created SWAPP as a direct response to the pandemic, but today it’s optimising efficiency and safety for the stadia sector – and it’s changing the game for venues and teams.
SWAPP originally caught the attention of Principality Stadium and the WRU in October 2020. It was adopted to safely bring us the Autumn Internationals and the Six Nations during the pandemic. Following its success, it’s now been adopted by several teams, including Welsh Athletics, Scarlets Rugby, Cardiff Rugby, Sale Sharks, and the Elite Ice Hockey League.
Today it helps venues including Principality Stadium, Sixways Stadium, Glamorgan Cricket, and Parc Y Scarlets to safely manage staff, teams, contractors, and visitors. It’s also been adopted by businesses including Andrew Scott and Transport for Wales.

“Being shortlisted among global brands at this year’s TheStadiumBusiness Awards gives recognition to the amazing partnerships, projects, and client collaborations we’ve been part of,” says Vindico MD Jo Polson.
“Vindico is all about tech for good. But we’re not just tech pros – we’re massive sports fans, too. So being able to support stadiums, arenas, venues, and teams by giving them the tools they need to help keep fans, staff, contractors, and media teams safe, while optimising processes, efficiency, and overall experience is a dream for us. And being recognised for this within the industry is even better.”
Vindico couldn’t have been shortlisted without the help of Technical Ryan Griffiths and the incredible Dev Team who are constantly adding new features to keep SWAPP one smart step ahead for our stadia clients.
Recognition for SWAPP isn’t just for us at Vindico – it also helps us shine the light on our forward-thinking stadia clients who are embracing and implementing this tech to stay one safe, efficient step ahead.
TheStadiumBusiness Awards winners will be announced at a ceremony at this year’s annual TheStadiumBusiness Summit at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on 29 – 30 June, where Vindico MD Jo Polson is also a guest speaker.
