AFL Acquires DAS Installation Firm Forza Telecom

Jan. 3, 2024
Forza is well known for installing distributed antenna systems in some of North America’s largest sports venues.

AFL recently acquired Forza Telecom, a turnkey service and solutions provider that operates as DAS Group Professionals (DGP) and is based in Walnut Creek, California. “This acquisition further expands AFL’s solutions portfolio with specialized indoor and outdoor distributed antenna systems (DAS) capabilities,” AFL said when announcing the acquisition on January 3.

Forza Telecom was founded in 2010 and has provided state-of-the-art DAS installations to some of North America’s largest sports venues. “Forza Telecom has maintained a solid track record in delivering quality-focused customized solutions with extensive experience in targeted geographies,” AFL added. “The acquisition will strengthen AFL’s U.S. Services’ existing position in wireless networking for U.S. sports venues in the West and Southwest, while also expanding Forza Telecom’s presence in the Southeast region. In addition, AFL enhances Forza Telecom’s capabilities in complex RF design, large-scale installation, ongoing monitoring and maintenance services.”

“With the addition of Forza Telecom to AFL’s wireless service portfolio of Beam Wireless and Optical Telecom, AFL is elevating our position and enhancing our service offering in the DAS wireless market,” said Seneca Mullins, president of AFL’s U.S. Services. “Our combined expertise and capabilities will drive our ability to provide a more-comprehensive, full-service solution that includes monitoring and maintenance and serves a wide range of customers.”

In a joint statement Forza’s president Steve Dutto and chief operating officer Vince Gamick commented, “DGP is delighted with the opportunities and strength that AFL will bring to our unique venue-owned DAS business model.”

The entity will become part of the AFL U.S. Services Division, under Mullins’s leadership.
