Thanks to SingTel, next year’s South East Asian (Sea) Games in Singapore will be the most digitised Games in its history.
End-to-end multimedia solutions provided by SingTel will help to enable seamless connectivity and the smooth organisation of the Sea Games at all sporting venues. Its network capabilities will also support an integrated games management system to coordinate and process data at the event.
Singaporeans will also be able to enjoy SingTel’s advanced multimedia technologies at the road shows, school engagements and other public activities, leading up to the Games that will be taking place in a year’s time.
As well, the 7,000 participating athletes and officials from 11 South East Asian nations will get to enjoy high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi capabilities at the Athletes Village – to help them stay in touch with their family and friends.
So Singaporeans from all walks of life can definitely look forward to the 28th Sea Games, come 5 June 2015, and feel proud that we are hosting the regional sporting competition again – after 22 years.
SingTel the largest sponsor of the Sea Games
The advanced digitalisation of the Games will come from SingTel’s $15 million multimedia contribution to the Sea Games, as announced yesterday by the local telecommunications giant. This is under a partnership that SingTel has with the Singapore South East Asian Games Organising Committee (SINGSOC).
The hefty contribution makes SingTel the largest sponsor of the Sea Games to date and they will be providing next-generation multimedia solutions and technological infrastructure to support Singapore’s first Sea Games – in 22 years.
Said SingTel’s CEO Consumer Singapore Mr Yuen Kuan Moon, “It is our priority to provide next-generation multimedia services for major sporting events in Singapore, such as the inaugural Youth Olympic Games and Formula One.”
He added, “We are pleased to be the official multimedia partner for the Sea Games next year, especially when Singapore will be celebrating its 50th birthday.”
SingTel’s support of Singapore sports
Through partnerships with key events such as the Singapore Youth Olympic Games in 2010 as well as the Singapore Grand Prix from 2008 to 2013, SingTel has regularly been involved with sporting events in Singapore.
And this partnership with the SEA Games falls into line with SingTel’s vision for the nation to come together and celebrate Singapore’s 50th birthday by being “the proud host city of the region’s largest sporting event – right here in our dazzling new Singapore Sports Hub,” according to Mr Yuen.
“We share the Sea Games’ vision to ‘Celebrate the Extraordinary’ and believe that ordinary people with extraordinary dreams can accomplish great things,” added Mr Yuen.
