FK Zeljeznicar Signs a partnership with a digital sports pioneer RESULT SPORTS to further unlock the potential on digital platforms.

FK Zeljeznicar, a professional football club from Bosnia celebrating its 100th year anniversary in 2021 partners up with Germany based pioneer in digital sports RESULT Sports, forming a 4th digital partnership inside the first half of 2021, making it one of the most forward thinking football clubs in the Balkans region.  The partnership is designed to help the club understand the challenges it is facing in the crowded digital marketplace and unlock the full potential on all digital platforms it operates.

FK Zeljeznicar Chairman, Samir Ceric, states:

“Having led the digitalisation and commercialisation of FK Zeljeznicar from the first day in the office, I quickly realised the opportunities that are out there for clubs such as Zeljo and wanted to put my own stamp on its present and its future. From our first conversation, RESULT Sports’ founder Mario Leo and I totally understood each other and hit it off both on professional and personal fronts. His knowledge and understanding of the digital space is second to none and no wonder many major football clubs including Borussia Dortmund have been relying on his knowledge and his professional advice for a long time. I am truly looking forward to seeing him and his company add value to FK Željezničar by integrating their own standardised, scalable digital platforms based on their know-how, their experience and their valuable data gathering they have been successfully doing for more than a decade. I can say with certainty that these are exciting times for the Bosnian giant”, said Samir Ceric.
