Cisco and Mumbai City Football Club enters into a global partnership
Cisco and Mumbai City Football Club enters into a partnership deal with each other. Cisco will be featured at the Islanders’ training facility at the Nagoa Village Panchayat Football Ground and Indian Super League. The global technology leader is going to support all the aspects of the Mumbai City Football Club’s business through their networking solutions. Also, in this season of the Indian Super League, the First Team and fans can connect through Cisco Webex all across the country.
Bimal Parekh, co-owner of Mumbai City FC, said, “We are delighted that Cisco will be a part of the Mumbai City FC family and will partner with us for the next three years. Cisco has shown, especially in the last six months, how valuable its strategic technology solutions are to the future of connecting fans to teams and the sport they love. We look forward to achieving excellence with their support both on and off the pitch for years to come.”
Brian Eaton, Director of Global Sponsorships at Cisco, said, “The pandemic is giving rise to a low-touch, digital economy, where even the future of sports must be reimagined with technology at its heart. This partnership represents an opportunity to leverage our technology to make a positive impact, not only on the business and operations of Mumbai City FC but on the local community as well. Over the past year, our solutions have helped numerous clubs around the world stay connected to each other, their fans, and their local communities during a season unlike any other, and we are excited to work to forge new ground together in Mumbai.”
City Football Group arranged this partnership as a part of its consultancy services to the Club. Cisco and City Football Group have an old relationship and it also became the official technology partner for five City Football Group clubs – New York City FC, Yokohama F. Marinos, Manchester City, Sichuan Jiuniu FC, and Melbourne City FC. Cisco provides networking and video collaboration solutions for all of these as well.
