Microsoft signs as Wembley backer

Being a fan of English Premiership League, and a linux user, the news of MS becoming a Wembley backer quickly get my attention. From TFA, MS will support Wembley with its technology. I wonder what it means. Does it mean that any information service provided in Wembley will be run in MS Platform? Will any information can only be accessed trough MS tools?
If that's what MS pursues in, I think it's a smart marketing manouver since Wembley is a very Iconic stadium for all football fans.
I just hope that Mark Shuttleworth or any other open source tycoons(?!) can find a counter of such tactic. After all, football fans are also human being, right? :-D
