Manchester City Partner With iON Cameras

Wed 26th Feb 2014 | Football Sponsorship

Manchester City Football Club have announce a new partnership with iON Cameras.

The deal will see the brand become City's Official Global Sports Action Camera Partner.

Over the course of the multi-year partnership, iON will provide City with their cutting edge cameras and state-of-the-art software, including the Air Pro 3 and the Game.

With exclusive access to the first team, iON will capture unique behind-the-scenes training footage, bringing fans closer than ever.

In addition, iON cameras will also be used to enhance supporters' match-day experience on and off the pitch, through the installation of iON fan booths in BT City Square, the club's purpose built fan entertainment zone.

iON's cameras will also be a key tool in the club's performance analysis and coaching platform, that will help aid skills acquisition and technical performance amongst academy and first team players.

Commenting on the partnership, Tom Glick, Chief Commercial & Operating Officer for Manchester City Football Club, said, "We're delighted to welcome iON on board as our new Official Global Sports Action Camera Partner.

“iON's camera technology and software such as the Air Pro 3 and the Game, will provide real-time POV's into how the first-team and academy train, which can then be used by our expert performance analysis teams to gain competitive insights.

"The nature of the innovative content will also be a big hit with our fans around the world, especially during our International pre-season tours, where the cameras will play a key role."

Giovanni Tomaselli, iON CEO, added, "iON is excited to partner with Manchester City, and we can't wait to provide support to the club. The deal will enable us to help City coaches develop youth teams and players - part of iON's core philosophy - and also showcase how sport and technology can work excellently hand-in-hand.

"We're looking forward to this long-term partnership and hope the fans enjoy their up close and personal interaction with the team."
