Wolverhampton Wanderers, commonly known as Wolves, is a professional football club based in the West Midlands, England. Founded in 1877, they compete in the Premier League, the top division of English football. Wolves has a long history of community support and tangible link between fans and clubs, as well as European runs and is up there with the top teams in the world over the past decade.
Wolves had an extensive weekly workload of digital assets that needed to be organised and found quickly, so they decided to upgrade their digital strategy to be more versatile online. They sought out a digital asset management platform that could provide quick access and searchability of all their content, ranging from photos to videos and live broadcasts. Additionally, they needed it to automate content delivery to athletes, and wanted their partners to be tagged as well. ScorePlay was their go-to solution that provided a comprehensive, all-in-one package, without having to juggle several different tools.
Wolves chose ScorePlay as their official media asset manager in the January 2023, so we deployed our AI-powered classification to begin tagging and sorting their assets and archives. The solution provided them with, amongst others:
ScorePlay fits our media workflow requirements perfectly. The efficiency of the platform and the automatic AI-tagging has meant we can share assets directly with our players and partners as soon as our photographer has uploaded them. The app is simple to use and has worked successfully across our men's, women's and academy teams. A valuable addition to any sports organisation! - Max Fitzgerald, Communications Director
