Picture this: After months of planning and coordination, you finally score tickets to a Detroit Red Wings playoff game. Better yet, you get to take your 8-year-old son to his first-ever live sporting event. You make it to your seats, grab snacks and pause to take a picture-perfect selfie to send to your wife and post on Instagram. Then you wait, and wait, and wait before receiving an error message notifying you that your post is stuck in message purgatory.
As frustrating as it is, it’s an all-too-familiar scenario for sports fans and those attending live events in stadiums across the U.S. But fans who flock to the new Little Caesars Arena in The District Detroit will have an altogether different experience thanks to XFINITY high-speed web connections.
The arena will be home to the Red Wings and Pistons, replacing Joe Louis Arena and the Palace of Auburn Hills. It will also host countless other sports, entertainment and community events. And the fun won’t stop when you leave the stadium. Visitors can keep the party going with free WiFi access in high-traffic areas surrounding the arena. As the entire 50-block area around the arena dubbed The District Detroit gets built out, so will our WiFi hotspots.
These mixed-use areas surrounding stadiums are becoming a trend in cities across the U.S but Little Caesars Arena and The District Detroit are setting the bar – and it’s a very high bar.

Residences in The District Detroit will have access to multi-gigabit speeds and XFINITY X1. Other available services include XFINITY Voice, XFINITY Home and XFINITY Mobile, the company’s recently launched wireless service.
Accessing arena Wifi via The District Detroit XFINITY is easy. If you’ve visited previously, you’ll automatically be logged into the more than 1,000 access points in and surrounding the area. First-time visitors will need to complete a simple login and then browse, point, click, send or post away.
