Top 5 Sports in the World

The sport of volleyball got added to the Summer Olympics in 1964.  Meanwhile, beach volleyball made its Olympics debut in 1996.  However, by the time of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, volleyball was cumulatively the most-watched sport in the world.  With over 900 million fans around the world, volleyball is the fifth most popular sport in the world.  It sits behind only soccer, tennis, cricket and hockey.

In other words, volleyball truly is a universal sport.  Unfortunately, the divided and localized nature of the available content kept that entire world of fans from having a unified experience.  The Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) wanted to solve this problem, both for the fans and the sport.

Volleyball + Dynamics 365 = Power

When the FIVB looked to transform fans’ interaction with the sport, they knew they needed to go beyond a simple social media or website overhaul. They decided to embrace a full platform shift with Dynamics 365.  This shift transformed and optimized user experience, both within their organization and for sports fans around the world.

Dynamics 365 allowed the FIVB to evolve its business model for the digital age.  FIVB took a customer-focused journey, getting up-to-date on every kind of technology and connecting with consumers on a new level.

Today, the FIVB can give fans the content they want and deserve.  Meanwhile, the image of the sport is more modern and relevant than ever before.
