Digital Transformation

Working toward reducing the gap between small companies and sports entities we have created a working group devoted to the digital transformation of sports entities. This working group is focused on analyzing how to use different technologies within sports sponsorships, analyzing two fundamental points, innovation, and activation. This working group reviews real cases from the technological point of view such as performance and optimization of a sports sponsorship, the ROI of a sponsorship in Social Media, brand recognition and measurement on TV and web data management. In this working group, we aim to explore new digital assets, examine the expectations of the technological applications and innovation in sports sponsorships and understand the pricing of this market. In order to be successful, we have selected some of the most experienced partners in the vast GSIC ecosystem to form this working group.

Esports

As esports become increasingly popular around the world, at GSIC we decided that creating a working group was not only necessary but essential. Our Esports working group was created with the aim of reflecting on the industry and providing solutions to problems that exist or arise within it. GSIC has partnered with several companies associated with the center (Mediapro, Atos, Freedom and Flow Company, MC Saatchi Sponsorship, Real Madrid, Banco Sabadell, among others) to promote the implementation of this working group that seeks to address issues that involve key issues within esports such as the creation of specific digital content, the transformation in the consumption of these contents, challenges in gaming devices, monetization of the participation of fans and their communities, or the role of technology companies, distribution channels and sponsors , among others.

Education

AR/VR/MR

Augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality are all new technologies that are rapidly increasing in popularity, every day new and more practical uses are being discovered for this technology. At GSIC we have created a working group comprised of some of or invaluable partners with the intention of focusing this technology on the sporting world to holistically improve the sports industry in anything ranging from fan engagement to practice.

Health

Health has always been and will always be not only a crucially important part of sports but also a main focus of technology. For this reason, we at GSIC have created a working group focused primarily on Health. This working group not only focuses on physical health but psychological health as well. The aim of this working group is to promote and ensure long-term health through technology with the intention of keeping players and fans healthy so that they may play longer and harder and enjoy their sport to its fullest.

Marketing & Sposorship

Sports entities are in a process of continuous progress and growth and in the Global Sports Innovation Center powered by Microsoft we are aware of the difficulties experienced by these entities when it comes to establishing progress in their digital transformation.

For this reason, in GSIC we work to reduce this gap, and we have created this working group focused on analyzing how to use different technologies within sports sponsorships, analyzing two fundamental points: innovation and activation.

We will review real cases from the technological point of view such as: performance and optimization of a sport sponsorship, the ROI of a sponsorship in Social Media, brand recognition and measurement on TV and web data management.

In this working group we will explore new digital assets, discuss the expectations of the technological applications and innovation in sports sponsorships and we will understand the pricing of this market.
