QMS Sport’s Global Expansion ‘Kicking Goals’ in 2019
QMS Sport’s global expansion, through the recent strategic acquisitions of TGI Systems Corporation (TGI) and TGI Europe GmbH (TGIE), has delivered a number of significant contract wins, as the business continues to focus on bringing together major international sporting associations and clubs under one unified and powerful technology, infrastructure and digital media platform.
With access to more than 2,500+ individual global sporting events as well as significant virtual opportunities, QMS Sport has begun the year with major goals kicked in the following areas:
- ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) 2019 – Awarded the contract to supply LED perimeter screens, LED sightscreens, integration and fan engagement software and associated services.
