Wellington Phoenix has announced a new partnership with Spark New Zealand, who will become the official technology provider for the country’s only professional football club.
As New Zealand’s largest telecommunications and digital services company, Spark New Zealand provides mobile, broadband, sports streaming and technology services including cloud, security, digital transformation, data and AI for Kiwis.
Spark New Zealand General Manager Value Management, Rajesh Singh, is excited by the future opportunities that partnering with an iconic New Zealand sports team like Wellington Phoenix FC creates for New Zealand football fans.
“We can’t wait to work with Wellington Phoenix and look forward to the innovative possibilities this could bring, including creating an enhanced live stadium experience using emerging technologies such as 5G, to revolutionise the way Kiwis watch their favourite sports.”
Wellington Phoenix General Manager, David Dome, says that Spark is a great fit with the club as both organisations have shared values and a focus on being progressive.
“Technology plays a key role in our club, as our players and operations staff are often travelling and the need to remain connected is important.
‘’We feel we really align with Spark’s values, particularly around diversity and Matomato – succeeding together and growing.”
As New Zealand’s largest telecommunications and digital services company, Spark’s purpose is to help all of New Zealand win big in a digital world. Spark provides mobile, broadband and digital services to millions of New Zealanders and thousands of New Zealand businesses.
