“All SPFC employees have been positively affected by the integration and accuracy of the information, which allows for faster and better decisions and even better service for our 16 million supporters

Mario Quezada
SPFC CIO

Gol! This is a story about how one of the world’s top football clubs is achieving a winning position in our new digital world

bluedash

By partnering with Atos, São Paulo Futebol Clube enters an exclusive group at the top of the table in terms of digital innovation.

Since its foundation in 1930, SPFC has grown to have one of the largest and most faithful fan bases in Brazilian football.

Enterprises in any other sector can learn a lot from football. Football is the ultimate demonstration of customer loyalty: once an SPFC supporter, always an SPFC supporter.

The challenge

bluedash

  • SPFC relied on non-integrated data and process management tools to administer their business and fan-base.
  • Changes to reporting and compliance legislation demanded a more agile, transparent and responsive approach.
  • The club needed a digital platform which would respond to these requirements and establish a foundation for online engagement with 17 million supporters.
  • SPFC needed a partner with extensive and demonstrable SAP skills and a strong local presence in Brazil.
