Gloucester Rugby announces Official IT Partner

Gloucester Rugby has today announced a ground breaking technology partnership with leading IT support and Cyber Security company First Solution Technologies.

As part of this partnership First Solution and Gloucester Rugby will work together to secure and manage the business infrastructure and ensure the operational performance off the pitch is as outstanding as the team’s performance on it. As the first step, First Solution will create a state-of-the-art Managed IT Support Service to enable operational excellence, whilst simultaneously raising defences and lowering costs. Within the partnership, First Solution and Gloucester Rugby will explore revolutionary ways in which the club uses technology to create a unified experience for supporters, employees and partners of Gloucester Rugby, and in the process set a new engagement benchmark in the world of sport.

Gloucester Rugby’s Chief Commercial Officer, Adam Benson comments:

“In this day and age, no organisation can flourish without first-class IT Services and the reassurance that state of the art Cyber Security services provides.

“First Solution will manage those aspects of our business for us. We’re delighted to welcome them on board and are looking forward to working with them.”

“As a lifelong rugby fan, it is such a great privilege to be selected as the Official IT Partner for Gloucester Rugby. We are looking forward to supporting the staff that make the success of the team on the pitch possible. The First Solution Technologies team worked hard in what was a very competitive process and winning is always a pleasure” said Nigel Church, Managing Director of First Solution Technologies.

“We feel that the core values of both our organisations are well aligned and we are very excited by the opportunities that this relationship creates for both businesses.” Added Paul Hillis, Sales Director of First Solution Technologies.

We therefore firmly believe that this is in its true sense, not just a partnership, but a sign of a new reality – one where technology is transforming business into a team sport.
