Tech giant Cisco partners with FIFA to erect network infrastructure for 2023 ladies World Cup 

Technology company Cisco signed a partnership with FIFA to build network infrastructure for the 2023 women’s World Cup. 

According to both parties, the network will connect all ten stadiums as well as non-competition venues during the tournament. 

The company will construct the underlying network infrastructure for the tournament, connecting key applications and IT systems required for operations, administrations and media, at both competition and non-competition venues. 

The infrastructure will comprise both physical hardware, such as switches and routers, and software-defined innovation that will ensure a reliable, secure connection and protect the tournament from cyberthreats. 

“With Cisco’s expertise and solutions, we will have a seamless and securely connected tournament experience,” Fatma Samoura, General Secretary of FIFA. 

Capability and scalability will be crucial given the tournament takes place across ten stadiums in two different countries.

Carrie Palin, Cisco’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, said, “We’re committed to enabling a connected experience for football fans worldwide and are proud of our role in supporting the game of football and using it as a platform to make a positive impact on players and fans.”
