Switched on Futures

Virgin Media powers up 20 Glasgow Sport Clubs
15/08/2014

20 Glasgow Sports Clubs have successfully been chosen to be part of Virgin Media’s Switched on Futures initiative, a new partnership with Glasgow Life and Digital Glasgow. The initiative aims to boost digital skills in Glasgow and contribute to the positive legacy of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

As part of Switched on Futures initiative each of the 20 clubs will have access to a tablet device to enable them to take sports video footage, undertake video analysis, develop club websites and assist with club administration. The 20 Clubs will also receive digital training for coaches and officials as well as free connectivity to broadband for a year.

Councilor Archie Graham, Depute Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow Life, said:  “We want everyone to be included in the digital age, whether that’s young people looking to be the next Bill Gates or developers of video games, or simply helping older people to get online and communicate with friends and family, no-one should be left behind. I’m delighted that Virgin Media is investing in a digital legacy which will have the power to transform people’s lives.”
