Mitel Makes MLB Partnership International

November 20, 2018

Since its creation in the 1800’s, baseball has served as America’s pastime. From March until November, MLB steals the hearts and minds of millions of Americans and citizens around the globe. And now baseball is set to make its European debut, with a little help from the cloud.

Mitel announced an expanded partnership with MLB as the title partner of next season’s MLB London Series. Taking place June 29-30 2019, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will put one of MLB’s biggest rivalries on the world stage.

"We are privileged to power the communications and collaboration needs of MLB during the London Series," said Rich McBee, Mitel President and CEO. "Our heritage runs deep across the UK and Europe, so the chance to help share the game of baseball at the highest level represents a truly unique opportunity for our customers, partners and employees. We look forward to establishing a world-class experience in partnership with MLB." 

Mitel inked its initial deal with the MLB back in February, and with this week’s multi-year partnership the cloud communications provider will be central in all branding and marketing regarding the series. The official business technology and communications partner will also be taking part in the 2020 series as well.  

"With Mitel expanding its MLB partnership internationally, it tells us how successful this first season together was and how committed Mitel is to our sport," said Noah Garden, Executive Vice President, Commerce, Major League Baseball. "We're proud to have Mitel deepen their involvement with MLB as part of an important league initiative like the landmark London Series. We're excited about growing our partnership and, like our fans, can't wait for next year's games to begin." 

MLB may be sluggish to change, but it is embracing technology with open arms. The cloud is the clear MVP in this evolution.
