Best Use of Technology in Football (non club specific) 2017
tv & Supponor
Virtual Hybrid digiBOARD is a breakthrough in technology that combines ADI’s industry-leading perimeter LED system (installed at 22 Premier League and EFL clubs) with Supponor’s virtual replacement technology (used in LaLiga and NHL). Now sponsors can significantly increase revenue by commercialising the same perimeter media space multiple times over – delivering different perimeter advertising content to individual broadcast territories, whilst clubs maintain visual LED in stadium.
Perimeter advertising in sport is one of the most high profile and high value media assets a club or federation has, due to its visibility amongst huge viewing audiences. The value of this media space has reached maturity in most sports, however, the emergence of augmented reality perimeter technology is the next great revenue opportunity for clubs and venues.
Clubs have been demanding a virtual replacement solution that integrates with digital LED displays for years and, working together, ADI and Supponor have been able to develop the world’s first Virtual-Hybrid solution.
ATPI Sports Events
ATPI Sports Events (part of the ATPI Group) is one of the most well-respected sports travel and events brands in the world. It has a long track record in successfully delivering travel and event logistics for a wide array of global sporting events. We provide travel management for various Champions League and Premier League Football Clubs, sports associations, media, and federations, and arranging corporate and team travel for all fixtures, from domestic to international leagues plus training camps to scout travel management.
ATPI Sports Events uses technology to safeguard sports clubs and associations when they travel and recently worked with multiple football businesses to do this. The ATPI Employee Tracking System (ETS) warns when there is a potential “risk location” and all travel details of personnel travelling on a global basis to minimise risk and ensure peace of mind for all involved. This was paramount for the City Football Group and Everton Football Club who operate in high-risk areas. The tracking system and thorough assessments allow peace of mind to travellers and employees with 24/7 contact centres and robust procedures in place should any issues arise.
