Avaya and Gotham FC Kick Off Exciting Women’s Sports Partnership and the 2021 Season

National Women’s Soccer League is one of the most exhilarating and fun to watch sports in the world, and these women play with a passion, energy, and commitment to excellence that is unrivaled. And today we are incredibly pleased to announce Avaya’s new partnership with NJ/NY Gotham Football Club of the NWSL. Avaya and Gotham FC are excited to go out every day and play to win, whether it’s on the soccer pitch, or delivering innovation and value to our customers.

Avaya is committed to creating an environment that fosters inclusion, and I believe that our diverse team is the driving force behind our success. Avaya and Gotham FC share a desire to achieve ambitious goals, and inspire people to bring their skills and experience to the playing field, both in sports and business. Our partnership is also a powerful platform to promote equality and empower women and girls. I can’t wait for the season to start.

We’ll not only have the Avaya logo on the jerseys of Gotham FC’s talented players and throughout the stadium, we’ll also be collaborating in a variety of ways in the spirit of inspiring women in sports and business. Avaya OneCloud™ workstream collaboration and customer experience solutions will digitally enable the club’s fan engagement experience. Avaya and Gotham FC will also be working together on programs for local causes and giving back to the community.

Of course, the partnership with Gotham FC is by no means Avaya’s first foray into professional sports. A previous partnership with the San Jose Earthquakes soccer team included providing ground-breaking technology to cloud-enable their home stadium and deliver a truly innovative fan experience. And we support our many pro sports franchise customers, including football, basketball, baseball and hockey teams, as they manage their communications and engage with their fans using our Avaya OneCloud solutions.

As we embark on our multi-year partnership with Gotham FC, this is a tremendous opportunity to work with a forward-thinking organization that is truly aligned with our passion for teamwork, community, and winning. This is just the beginning, and we are excited to bring more technology to the club and contribute to their success. Be sure to cheer on Gotham FC this season, support the NWSL and women’s sports, and stay tuned as we follow the club on their path to victory.

See today’s press release for more details on Avaya’s partnership with Gotham FC.
