Srdjan Selic – ICT Infrastructure Manager
With ten venues and up to 300 million live spectators at 51 matches across almost five weeks, EURO 2016 presents a massive technical and logistical operation.
After months of planning and preparation, UEFA’s ICT team grows from its usual 80 or so to an enterprise of more than 1,000.
Outside of the normal event management such as accreditation and ticketing, transport and event logistics, UEFA is responsible for handling commercial partners, broadcast rights and digital delivery of content such as website streaming and mobile apps.
UEFA has to make sure that that infrastructure and solutions, and the support structure underneath, are working flawlessly 24/7 with no downtime.
