GameStrat: Most Reliable Sideline Tablet System For NCAA College Football

On April 18th 2024, the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel met to discuss the long awaited introduction of sideline tablet technology in college football. After overwhelming support across all 3 divisions of the NCAA, the use of sideline tablet technology was officially approved for the upcoming 2024 season. 


Following the official approval, teams are now in charge of finding the best sideline tablet system for their program.There may be some difficulty finding the sideline tablet solution that best accommodates your current setup. As far as we are aware, DVSport and Catapult are not offering wireless portable solutions and will require teams to hardware their stadiums. This means that programs who don't have existing infrastructure, may be under the impression that they cannot utilize sideline tablet technology. 


That's where GameStrat comes in as a perfect solution for any team - as our system has the ability to be 100% portable OR to utilize pre-existing network wiring. Our group of sideline replay experts sat down to highlight this, and many more of  the characteristics that make GameStrat the #1 sideline tablet option for any NCAA football program.

Future Proof

Unlike our competitors, GameStrat's system is completely versatile. It has the ability to be 100% wireless and portable, or to utilize pre-existing network wiring. This means that you can utilize pre-existing infrastructure if you have it, but are not required to make the investment of installing it in order to run the GameStrat sideline tablet system. GameStrat ensures that whether you opt for a wireless solution or choose to install hardwiring infrastructure later on, the system will continue to operate flawlessly.

The GameStrat system is known as the most reliable sideline replay system on the market. We've had many of our high school football teams play state championship games in different NFL & NCAA stadiums including Las Vegas Raiders' very own Allegiant stadium (as pictured below), Michigan Stadium, University of North Carolina Tar Heels stadium, Arizona State Sun Devils stadium, and others. None of these teams reported having any issues with setup or receiving clips on the iPads.


Regardless of size, the GameStrat system will operate & maintain a reliable connection in ANY STADIUM.
