Cisco has become Australia’s second FIFA World Cup bid partner.
As part of the relationship, Football Federation Australia (FFA) will be using Cisco’s TelePresence, WebEx and digital signage technologies, to help its bid along the way.
“We are excited to be a part of delivering leading-edge collaborative capabilities and technology to the FFA’s bid to bring the FIFA World Cup to Australia,” Cisco A /NZ vice-president, Les Williamson, said.
Further details around appointing a partner to conduct the implementation of the technology have not been disclosed.
Cisco joins Qantas as an official partner of FFA’s 2018 or 2022 bid to bring the FIFA World Cup to Australia.
FFA CEO, Ben Buckley, said if Australia is successful in securing the bid, the cost efficiencies of using this technology would be very significant.
“The relationship enables us to better connect with FIFA and the world through the use of state-of-the-art technology, as we continue the bidding process to bring the FIFA World Cup to Australia in 2018 or 2022,” FFA CEO, Ben Buckley, said.
“The support of Cisco strengthens our efforts and helps us to spread the message about our bid both domestically and internationally.”
