Mumbai City Football Club (FC) signed a partnership deal today with Cisco, a global technology leader, as its new Official Network Technology Partner.
Cisco will feature on the FC’s matchdays in the Indian Super League (ISL) and at the Islanders’ training facility at the Nagoa Village Panchayat Football Ground. It will also support all aspects of the Club’s business through their networking solutions and connect the First Team to India’s fans via Cisco Webex.
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.”
