The club carried out a tender process over a period of months, starting in 2022, with the aim of finding one partner to look after all aspects of IT and Communications, including telecoms, print, connectivity, and IT support. The process also offered the opportunity to migrate all staff onto a cloud-based system with the aim of improving efficiency and security.
The club received several strong bids, with Indigo winning the contract based on the strength of the overall package and the impressive references received. Indigo have also supported the club by taking out match sponsorship and advertising space within The Falkirk Stadium.
Indigo Communications will work in partnership with The Bairns for the next five years.
Falkirk FC CEO Jamie Swinney said of the deal:
“The club’s IT and communication infrastructure was an area which required investment, in terms of both time and expertise, to allow the business to modernise and achieve further progress. As with many other parts of the rebuild of our club, this project required due care and attention to ensure that we could identify the most suitable partner for what is an important part of any business.
“To be a modern and progressive football club, and one which can be sustainably successful, it is vital we have the infrastructure behind the scenes to support future growth. I would like to formally welcome Indigo and thank them for all their support and guidance throughout the process. I also wish to place my deep gratitude to both John Wright and Ian Park who have led the project on behalf of the club, providing a high level of expertise and professionalism throughout.”
Kenny Stevenson, Operations Director at Indigo, commented:
“We’re genuinely delighted to partner with Falkirk Football Club and support their cloud migration strategy. Our commitment to their success is unwavering, just like the dedication they bring to the beautiful game. Together, we’re scoring big in the world of technology. At Indigo we like to say ‘We Make IT Easy’, supporting the Digital Strategy and overall vision of the club has made that possible.”
