Premier League club Manchester City today announced a new partnership with Singaporean IT firm Acronis.
Under the multi-year global partnership, Acronis will become the club’s new Official Data Backup and Storage Partner, and will work with City to enhance and develop its data storage capabilities.
Acronis was founded in Singapore in 2003 and incorporated in Switzerland in 2008. The brand works with 5 million consumers and over 500,000 businesses in 145 countries.
As part of the deal, Man City will also explore opportunities to work with the Acronis Foundation, which provides education around the world by building schools in developing countries.
The deal comes on the back of allegations of financial foul play at City, centring on the club’s partnership with Etihad Airways.
