Acronis seals Cyber Protection Partnership with Jaguars UK

The Jacksonville Jaguars U.K. today announced Acronis as its official Cyber Protection partner. The three-year partnership is in addition to a previously established relationship with the Jacksonville Jaguars in the United States. Under the #Cyberfit partner EveryCloud.co.uk, the Jaguars UK will benefit from Acronis' array of online security solutions to thwart cyberattacks and ensure the prevention, detection, response, recovery, and analysis needed to safeguard all areas of modern-day elite sports business.

Currently enjoying a spectacular end to the season, the Jaguars were crowned AFC South Champions to reach the playoffs, where against LA Chargers on Saturday evening the team overcame a 27-point deficit to clinch a 31-30 victory on the final play of the game, making it arguably the most electrifying comeback in team history.

The Jaguars UK have a rapidly growing fanbase in the United Kingdom and since 2007 have played one game each season in London. The 2023 season will mark the team's ninth appearance at Wembley Stadium as the home team and follows a record-breaking attendance in 2022. With a dedicated staff in the U.K. grassroots programmes reaching almost 90,000 young people each year and a charitable Foundation, the Jaguars commitment to London and the U.K. is for the long term.

Scott Massey, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Jacksonville Jaguars UK, commented:
