Hornets supporters can download a smartphone app designed to increase connectivity between fans despite limited mobile network coverage at football stadiums.

The free trial app called 'Hornets Hive' is available for Apple iOS & Android devices.

Designed by Sussex University Professor Ian Hamilton, the 'TribeHive' technology allows phones to share available signal in order to access latest scores and in-game updates via the app.

The app must be downloaded pre-matchday and will be trialled during the first two months of the season.
