Atos, the official IT partner of UEFA National Team Football until 2030, has announced it will deliver on-site and remote IT services for the UEFA EURO 2024, taking place June 14 to July 24, 2024, in Germany.
Since first announcing its partnership at the end of 2022, Atos has helped UEFA manage and improve its systems and applications and has supported major tournaments such as the UEFA Nations League Finals held in Rotterdam in June, 2023.
At UEFA EURO 2024, Atos aims to improve the experience for all stakeholders and will be responsible for managing core IT planning and operations systems such as event management, diffusion systems – like the football service platform – and additional support and operational services with printing, radio communication and service desk services.
Through the football service platform, Atos will store and distribute past and current UEFA football data to external and internal stakeholders. An example of the data includes fixtures, results, line-ups, live match events, standings, statistics, player status, ranking and more.
Additionally, the company will also provide on-site and remote support from various locations starting with ICT venue managers, venue applications coordinator and service desk operators present in the ten tournament stadiums to ensure streamlined efficiency and reliability. A second group will be located at the International Broadcast Center located in Leipzig which will host the IT Command Center of UEFA. To provide remote assistance, technical teams will also be mobilized from Nyon, Madrid and Barcelona among other locations.
Patrick Adiba, CEO, Atos Major Events, said: “Atos is excited to work alongside UEFA to provide a seamless experience to all the people attending the UEFA EURO 2024, the football fans, media and all the stakeholders involved. Our whole core expertise will serve this competition to successfully onboard all football fans worldwide.”
Martin Kallen, CEO, UEFA Events SA, said: “We look forward to making the UEFA Euro 2024 an extraordinary digital experience for all our football fans and the European football family. Benefiting from the extensive expertise acquired by Atos as an IT partner on major sporting events, we are delighted to be working together to deliver the most connected Euro ever.”
