Munster Partner Up With Vodafone Ireland
24th January 2019 By The Editor
Munster Rugby have today announced an exclusive technology partnership with Vodafone Ireland.
The partnership will see the rollout of Vodafone Business solutions across the organisation to connect supporters, sponsors, players, coaches and staff.
Vodafone will partner with Munster to help the province grow on a global scale and create an interconnected fan base.
Vodafone’s mobile network and One Net Business – a unified communications solution which allows businesses to combine all of their communications tools into one solution hosted on the cloud.
This will give Munster Rugby connectivity and mobility across their offices and training facilities in Cork and Limerick and for their staff who work remotely.
The partnership will also provide gigabit connectivity, through SIRO, to Thomond Park. This connectivity is crucial for a high performance sports team, so staff, coaches and players are digitally enabled for matches, training, and analysis.
Regina Moran, Enterprise Director of Vodafone Ireland, said: “Munster Rugby is a team, but also a business, that requires first-class digital support to enhance performance on and off the field.
“We are delighted to partner with them and enable their digital journey with our innovative business-centric solutions. Vodafone works with organisations, like Munster Rugby, to match their strategy and goals with the best technology and this partnership is a great example of that.
“They are a small business that wants to grow internationally, but also an organisation with a lot of moving parts, travel requirements and employees based in different locations so connectivity, agility and mobility with the technology to enable them are essential for success”.
Doug Howlett, Munster Rugby Head of Commercial and Marketing, said: “We are delighted to partner with a leading global technology brand such as Vodafone Ireland.
“Aligning our strategic goals with Vodafone’s innovative business solutions will not only improve Munster Rugby’s connectivity but also enhance the organisation and brand.”
