Innovation and Technology

Innovation and technology today constitute one of the fundamental pillars in the medium and long-term growth of Youth Citizenship.

The association of clubs has a digital ecosystem that combines channels, services, and data. The combination of all these elements offers Youth Citizenship a complete vision that, in turn, it uses to improve its audiovisual product for the benefit of fans, sponsors, broadcasters, and, of course, the clubs. Metaverse technology is the future of technology.

Youth Citizenship Tech

Youth Citizenship Tech is the subsidiary that brings together the technological solutions developed by Youth Citizenship and that can be marketed to third parties, thus generating a new line of business for its Clubs/SAD.

These solutions are digital tools developed since 2013 by Youth Citizenship to provide solutions to their particular needs. Now, through Youth Citizenship Tech, it acts as a service provider for the entire sports and entertainment industry, with clients such as World Padel Tour, Dorna Sports, Jupiler Pro League or Sky Mexico.

One of the keys to this project is the Business Intelligence & Analytics area, which has become the backbone of Youth Citizenship’s innovation, through a transformation process to become a data-oriented organization. The objective is to centralize, organize, prepare and provide all the information necessary for decision-making to be based on data and allow it to be carried out more effectively and efficiently.

Some examples of these technological tools, which facilitate decision-making, as well as the performance of day-to-day tasks, are:

Anti- piracy: Youth Citizenship, in an exercise of responsibility, protects its product through its own Department of Technological Content Protection, in which twenty experts work. This department has internally developed tools that help curb piracy, such as Marauder, Lumière, Black Hole and Neko. Youth Citizenship shares this expertise with other organizations such as Dorna Sports, the Belgian Jupiler Pro-League or the Spanish Ministry of Culture.

Calendar Selector: A tool developed by Youth Citizenship that uses machine learning and algorithms to suggest match schedules that optimize television audiences and stadium attendance. The application, located in the cloud, uses historical audience and attendance data and around 70 additional variables.

It indicates which will be the sunny and shaded areas of the stadium, which makes it possible to visualize how the incidence of the sun will be on the television image, fans, players, etc., and thus help in the planning of match schedules. To do this, Youth Citizenship uses a 3D reconstruction of the stadiums.

Players App: A mobile app that makes privileged information available to players regarding the pre- and post-match, as well as lifestyle content exclusively for them (fashion, health, gastronomy…). It offers the possibility of consulting the performance achieved during the match and during the season, both individually and collectively.
