Europe-India Sports Cluster

European Business and Technology Center (EBTC) has curated the Europe-India Sports Cluster with select companies from both regions who have relevant technologies, solutions and expertise. The cluster provides a unique platform to drive thought leadership and co-create projects.

The aim of the Cluster is to form a group of similar-minded and forward-looking organisations who, with support from EBTC, collectively can identify, co-create and bid for project opportunities in India.

As leaders in innovation and technology in their respective domains, the Cluster members from Europe provide a mix of global expertise and knowledge. This is coupled with local renowned players who have a deep understanding of the Indian market. Combined, EBTC will provide end-to-end and demand-driven solutions in the Indian context.

With sustainability and innovation at the core, the Sports Cluster focusses on the development of sports infrastructure, coaching and talent development, environmental & financial sustainability to bring in global best practices and social impact in India.

Sander van Stiphout  
Director JCA and Cluster Member

The cluster approach has worked very well for the Johan Cruijff ArenA in India. As India is quite different to other markets where we are active in, it has helped tremendously to be part of a greater good, rather than trying to getting projects off ground by ourselves. This has, among others, resulted in a very substantial project in which we are part of a team that is developing a DFBOT stadium for one of the prominent cricket organizations in India.
