We’re delighted to announce the renewal of our partnership with Acronis, which will see the leading technology company continue as our official cyber protection partner.

The new agreement means that we also welcome global technology distributor and Acronis’ delivery providers, Ingram Micro Cloud, as the delivery partner in the relationship.

Our partnership extension gives us access to Acronis’ and Ingram Micro Cloud’s extensive experience in delivering innovative solutions for global sports organisations, and a variety of services dedicated to protecting data with state-of-the-art data recovery and backup processes.

Arsenal’s Chief Commercial Officer, Juliet Slot, said:

“We’re excited to extend our partnership with Acronis and bolster our relationship by integrating Ingram Micro Cloud as the delivery partner. Since 2018, Acronis has helped us protect our data and create operational efficiencies across the club. We’re grateful for their fantastic support in this crucial area and we’re pleased to be building on the great work we’ve done together.” 

Ronan Mc Curtin, Acronis VP of Sales Europe, Israel and Turkey said:

“A healthy football team needs healthy protection, and we’re proud that Arsenal chose us as their cyber protection provider. While the fans are roaring with excitement at the games, we’ll be there behind the scenes making sure everything runs smoothly and ensuring their sensitive data is safe in our hands.”

Ovidiu Gherghel, Director Cloud & Cyber Security, UK&I Ingram Micro, commented:

“We have seen rapid adoption of technology in sports, both on and off the pitch. At Ingram Micro Cloud, we’re constantly exploring how we can push the boundaries within the industry but the key is delivering unique experiences for both fans and athletes. Whether that’s getting the big decisions right, or helping teams and individuals hit peak performance, we want to be standing beside them when they reach their goal. We are thrilled to once again be partnering with Acronis and look forward to sharing our expertise with them and Arsenal.”

About Arsenal Football Club

Arsenal Football Club was born when a group of workers at Dial Square armaments factory in Woolwich, notably exiled Scotsman David Danskin and Jack Humble, decided to form a football team to break the monotony of factory life.

Since that Dial Square team played its first match against Eastern Wanderers in 1886, Arsenal has gone on to become one of London’s most successful football clubs and one of the most famous names in modern football with millions of passionate followers worldwide.

Steeped in history and tradition, Arsenal Football Club has thrived on a pioneering and innovative spirit that has existed throughout its 136 years in existence. While society and football may have changed during this time, Arsenal has always served to create a sense of community for people in Islington, across the UK and now around the world.
