FACTORIA DEL DEPORTE GALLEGO- GALICIA SPORTS 360
On March 15, 2022, an application was submitted to initiate the procedure of declaration of Regional Interest of the project ” Galician Sport Factory-Galicia Sports 360″ having as promoter Real Club Celta de Vigo, S.L.U., taking into account that sport has outstanding functionalities, in particular in the fields of education, training and culture, in improving public health, in promoting social cohesion, in development and in respect of the environment.
The project is constituted as a complex of facilities of about 300,000m2 from which different facets of the sports system will be addressed and promoted, with three groups of infrastructures: Sports City Afouteza, Integral Center for the Training of the Sports Industry and, finally, the Area of Services- Arena Space.
The Afouteza Sports City consists of an integrated set of buildings and facilities at the service of sport in order to meet the operational needs of the entity and provide it with the necessary infrastructure both for the requirements of high readiness performance and monitoring of athletes in the professional football categories of the club as for promotion, promotion and training of new generations of sports (Cantera).
Given the importance of the training processes of athletes and the need for adequate facilities, as well as the growth of the entity face, among other things, to women’s football to which the current facilities of A Madroa would be reserved since the Group in its promotion of equality between men and women and as a push of women’s sport, created a female football section of RCCelta.
n the field of training, the aim is to support sports agents in the field of technology, as well as to identify and retain the sports talent that is disseminated in the different clubs of the Autonomous Community.
Given the sports dimension of RCCelta, the work of sports promotion, especially in the field of grassroots sport transcends the metropolitan area of Vigo and the Autonomous Community itself.
The project also has an important presence of the educational, innovation and development aspects of the sports system, mainly focused on the Integral Center for the Training of the Sports Industry. Thus, it is intended to establish a dynamic and modernizing center of the business fabric that is a benchmark not only in the Autonomous Community or the northwestern peninsula, but at the national and international levels, and a strategic investment for its future.In addition to presence in employment, with the recruitment of a large number of new staff for management, the revitalization of activities and the maintenance of new facilities, being the Technological Center for Innovation in Sport, one of the areas that will benefit most from this new employment opportunity because it is totally new and by its very nature.
The proposed action goes beyond the municipal level and the project supports the idea of sport as an activity of public interest that helps growth and social cohesion, gender equality, to improve the welfare of citizens and the development of the whole of the Autonomous Community, strengthening the transversal character of the Galician sports system.Therefore, on June 1, 2022 the declaration of regional interest by the Council of the Xunta de Galicia is considered appropriate and in November 2022 the Declaration of Regional Interest for the Galician Sports Factory Project is announced.
The Club has undertaken a stage of continuous digital transformation, based on the permanent analysis of the activity, both internal in the business processes and external in the relationship with the customer, both B2B and B2C. Within the innovation in internal processes, the club continuously analyzes the tasks carried out by staff, trying to digitize, incorporating new tools, which do not provide value and freeing people’s time for those relevant.
Regarding B2C innovation, the club is equipping itself with tools that allow a better analysis and learning of the relationship that the client has with the Club and to create “patterns” to help improve service or be proactive in meeting future needs of customers. Analytical tools, Artificial Intelligence systems and 360 data collection are the basis of customer knowledge and behavior, something that is directly impacting society via adequacy of product and service offerings. This digitalization maintains a direct impact in optimizing sustainability models, via mobility, environment and, consequently, reduction of carbon footprint.
