The technically led Managed Service IT Consultancy based in Yorkshire, Netprotocol, has agreed a deal with sports rights specialists Eleven Sports Media to become a Leeds United FC Business Club partner.

With a vision to provide the best technology solutions to organisations across primarily the legal, education, accountancy and professional services sectors, Netprotocol is a client-focused company that helps companies identify and deploy technology to enable growth and raise performance.

The company’s core business is providing IT Infrastructure, Cyber Security, Support and Consultancy solutions. As a Leeds United Business Club member, Netprotocol will use Eleven Sports Media’s high impact fan engagement platforms integrated throughout the hospitality, concourse, and stadium bowl areas of Elland Road.

Netprotocol’s branding will be showcased on powerful crowd-facing, pitch-facing and mid-tier LED displays during both in-game and non-game periods. It will also appear on Eleven-owned engagement assets, StatTV and Stadium TV, which draw on live content to capture the attention of supporters.

The platform will enable Netprotocol to connect with global television audiences that the Premier League attracts, as well as the 37,000 fans packed inside Elland Road every matchday.

The company plans to use its Leeds United Business Club status to communicate its core message to businesses, highlighting that when selecting an IT provider, this decision will be a key strategic driver to any business’s success.

Netprotocol has over 20 years of experience in designing, delivering, supporting and maintaining their clients’ IT services. Cyber Security, for example, is critical in the modern digital age and Netprotocol is an expert at providing enterprise-class protection.

Having partnered with high-profile clients nationwide - from boutique law firms to international legal organisations, from academy trusts to colleges and universities, through to premier league football clubs - the team have earned excellent credibility for the expertise they can offer.

As a Leeds United Business Club Partner, Netprotocol will also use Eleven’s customer-targeted StatZone social media content to broaden its reach. The company will see its brand delivered alongside stat related match graphics, which are shared via official Leeds United Twitter and Facebook channels to over 2 million combined followers.

Providing additional opportunities for growth, Netprotocol will gain exclusive access to networking events which connect like-minded businesses with expert speakers.

Matt Widdowson, Commercial Director at Netprotocol commented:

We are really pleased to be supporting the Leeds United Business Club this season. It’s fantastic to be associated with a successful team. Our marketing director is a lifelong Leeds United fan and having local and national exposure is a great way of combining business with pleasure.
