Atomic Data Named Proud IT Provider of Orlando City SC and Orlando Pride
Atomic Data also tapped to refresh Exploria Stadium network infrastructure this offseason.
Minneapolis, MN, October 5, 2023 – Orlando City Soccer Club and the Orlando Pride today announced Atomic Data as the Proud IT Partner of both the Major League Soccer and National Women’s Soccer League clubs. The multi-year agreement is an evolution of the existing partnership, with Atomic Data serving as the Club’s Virtual CIO and Owner’s Technology Rep since 2022.
“As our industry continues to grow with both new technologies and innovation, as well as an increased need for secure and trusted IT infrastructure, having a proven and reliable partner is of incredible importance to our Club,” said Orlando City SC and Orlando Pride Chief Financial Officer, Carlos Osorio. “Through our work with Atomic Data thus far, they’ve been tremendous partners for all of our IT needs, both helping to bring best-in-class cybersecurity service to our front office while also supporting our efforts to produce a great atmosphere for City and Pride supporters. We’re looking forward to continuing our work together on current and future projects to improve our fan experience.”
Initially brought on last year to assess Orlando City SC’s technology and cybersecurity needs, Atomic Data would go on to provide a series of future-forward IT recommendations meant to put the Club and Exploria Stadium on the leading edge of sporting and large venue technology.
Beyond Exploria Stadium, Atomic Data is also supporting the Club’s front office headquarters and training facilities through the implementation of IT as a Service, bringing endpoint hardening, 24×7 network and security monitoring, and 24×7 end-user support to the organization.
Yagya Mahadevan, Game Day Technologies Lead at Atomic Data stated, “MLS and NWSL are entering an exciting new phase, attracting more fans and sponsors than ever before. Essential to both the fan and the sponsor experience is robust end-to-end technology. That’s where Atomic Data and our Game Day Technologies offering comes in. We’re humbled and excited to bring our proven league experience to Orlando City SC and Orlando Pride.”
