Paris Saint-Germain – the most successful club in French soccer – knows how to build a great team. And with its latest signing, they will become the most networked and technologically advanced in the game. With Ericsson as Paris Saint-Germain’s official digital experience partner, players, coaches, support staff, and fans get the world’s best on- and off-field experience.
Players and engineers teaming up
We are delighted to welcome Ericsson to the Paris Saint-Germain family. One of our aims as a club is to become one of the top sports franchises in the world, and digital transformation is clearly a key priority.Frédéric Longuépée, Paris Saint-Germain Deputy General Manager
Paris Saint-Germain and Ericsson have partnered to jointly innovate across three areas: a sports performance information system; a digital experience backend system; and technology consulting and innovation services.
Total football solution
At Paris Saint-Germain, talent isn't only found on the field. Top performers from the club's IT team will combine with Ericsson. And with the full range of our solutions and services available, we will work together to develop a winning strategy for transforming the club’s digital experience. All of Paris Saint-Germain's business, all of their teams, all of their followers – connected, networked, and always on the ball. When the iconic Parc des Princes stadium fills with passionate fans, great network coverage will just be the start of the challenge. Paris Saint-Germain’s digital platforms for data storage, web site, mobile apps, and big screens for broadcast and replays will all add up to the ultimate onsite fan experience.
A winning strategy
Together, we will pursue Paris Saint-Germain's goal of becoming the most digitally advanced team in the game, following a triple-pronged winning strategy.
The first element of our collaboration is the new Paris Saint-Germain Sports Performance Information System, a centrally managed data storage platform – operated by Ericsson as a service – designed to capture and control data from all of the club’s sports-related businesses. Powerful data visualization will give Paris Saint-Germain unprecedented insight into scouting, player health, scheduling, and much more.
Experience is everything in sports, and that’s where the second element of our partnership comes in. The Paris Saint-Germain Digital Experience platform will power web sites for mobile and desktop, apps, and in-stadium screens. Built on our trusted Ericsson Network Event platform, it will go beyond standard data sources, also capturing news, weather, traffic, and in-stadium food and beverage updates for the total game-day experience.
Winning teams always innovate, so the third element of our partnership draws on our technology consulting and innovation capabilities. A joint team of Ericsson innovators and Paris Saint-Germain staff will analyze and define new solutions, applications, techniques, and use cases, so that this great club stays one step ahead of the competition.
