We're excited to announce that we've landed a multi-year partnership with the Royal Air Force Central Fund to offer the RAF’s 50 sport associations exclusive live streaming services.
The agreement will provide each of the RAF’s sporting associations – which represent more than 10,000 athletes – with access to Joymo’s industry-leading live streaming video platform and associated services.
Joymo will work closely with the RAF Central Fund – the independent charity that provides grant funding to the RAF to ensure personnel can access sport and physical activities – to onboard their sports associations in the coming weeks.
RAF Halton has already been testing livestreaming Tennis with the Joymo platform.
Commenting on the agreement, Ross Perriam, CEO of RAF Central Fund, said: “We can’t wait to get RAF Sport streaming with Joymo. Sport is a vital component of any armed force and a critical element of how the RAF builds operational capability. As such, we are always looking for ways to encourage more Servicemen and women to get involved and improve the experience of those who already participate for RAF sport teams.
“Joymo makes it so simple to livestream our teams and events, and their focus on safeguarding, secure data management and GDPR compliance is first-class. We are delighted that fans, family, friends, coaches, and the participants themselves, will be able to watch our RAF teams compete anytime and anywhere on the Joymo platform.”
Discussing the partnership, Mike Emery, CEO of Joymo, said: “The RAF has a long and proud history when it comes to providing Servicemen and women with the opportunity to engage in sport at all levels. We are looking forward to working closely with their sporting associations over the next three years.
“Joymo is all about empowering athletes, coaches and fans at all levels of sport. Our tools and technology provide a seamless streaming capability that opens up sporting competitions and events to all in a cost-effective manner that can actually generate additional funds for the individual RAF sporting associations”, Emery added.
