Telecommunications organization, Vitel Global Communications, has signed a multi-year contract to join the recently formed New York City FC Associate Partnership, which gives regional businesses the opportunity to be a part of the New York City FC journey.

Vitel Global Communications is a B2B VoIP and cloud-based phone system provider exclusively for organizations that require a professional communications system. The company delivers cost-effective business communication solutions with more than 60 unified features helping businesses stay connected whether colleagues are working from home, on the road, or in multiple offices.

Providing solutions across the whole of the US, Vitel Global Communications plans to use its status as a New York City FC Associate Partner to broaden its reach, while closely targeting potential clients within New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.

The Associate Partnership is the result of an agreement with sports partnership experts, Eleven Sports Media, who use digital display technology to build strong fan engagement platforms through which brands can reach huge audiences.

As an Associate Partner, Vitel Global Communications will see their message delivered throughout New York City FC games at the Yankee Stadium. Branding will feature on field level and fascia LED boards throughout in-game and non-game periods, while Vitel Global Communications advertising will also appear on great hall LED and on StadiumTV during breaks in the game.

Beyond the stadium, the company will also be able to take their message to a huge social media audience, via Eleven Sports Media’s exclusive StatZone content, which pushes branded live game stats out to fans following online.

Vitel Global Communications also plan to make use of exclusive invite-only City Football Academy events, which provide an opportunity to network with other businesses, and will see their brand communicated via the official New York City FC website.

With the MLS continuing to grow and attract new audiences, both at home and internationally, Vitel Global Communications’ CEO, Praveen Andapalli, feels that the Associate Partnership with New York City FC provides huge value for the company, explaining,

“Soccer is a growing sport, and one we’re excited to be a part of. The Associate Partnership offers huge value and already feels right, despite the partner programme being brand new. As a founding member, we hope to use the wide audience to share our message and help businesses improve their communications technology cost effectively.”

Having recently been crowned MLS Cup champions, New York City FC are recognised as the finest in their field, something that aligns with Vitel Global Communications status as the best Voice as a Service Provider, both from a value and feature perspective.

Off the back of the club winning their first-ever trophy, Vitel Global Communications outlined how important the success was for New York as a city itself and how they will take inspiration from the MLS Cup champions as an organization, with Praveen Andapalli commenting,

“The energy was tremendous, and the city of New York really needed a true champion who fought through the playoffs to the amazing finals. We hope we can capture the same momentum and help turn our business into a champion as well.”

Vitel Global Communications’ standing has been further enhanced through being recognised by CIOCoverage magazine as one of the most innovative telecom solution providers to watch in 2021 and were even named as one of Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing American Private Companies.
