Cardiff City Football Club

Cardiff City Football Club 

Cardiff City FC is perhaps one of RedDrum’s most well known clients. Certainly, Cardiff City FC is one of the most famous clubs in Wales, but they also have nationwide acclaim for being the only club outside of England to win the FA Cup. An outstanding achievement!

As you would imagine, supplying IT support and management systems for a professional sports club is no easy feat. There are a whole range of unique factors to consider, that you simply don’t find in other industries and with technology now playing such a huge role in football and sport as a whole, clubs have to ensure their IT support team are up to the task. Not only that, but the Cardiff City Stadium is not solely used for Cardiff City FC, as it also plays host to the Welsh national team, UEFA matches, like the upcoming Women’s Champions League Final as well as conferences, concerts and other events, so the range of support they need is incredibly variable.

We rose to the challenges facing us and started by taking the time to understand fully the needs of Cardiff City FC. We started by installing a Cisco based Wide Area Network to allow complete access and a unified IT infrastructure. We then focused on one of the key areas where IT was needed, which was Match Day Support. We also implemented the CLINT – Club Intranet – that provides a comprehensive match day support management system with various modules installed, such as Clockin and The Scheduler, which allows for the effective, payroll and other vital match day information, as well as giving access to important information to other parties such as Police and Safety Advisors throughout the event. We are always striving to improve and develop our systems, to ensure that Cardiff City FC has an IT infrastructure that is continuously evolving and growing with them.
