STATSports has revealed that they have reached an agreement with the Socceroos, the name given to the Australian national soccer team, to use their technology.
The use of global positioning system (GPS) devices for the purpose of tracking player performance has become standard in professional football. Following similar STATSports linkups in 2018 with US Soccer, the Chinese Football Association, and the Brazilian Football Confederation, the organization has reached a partnership agreement with the Socceroos. Clubs in the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Major League Soccer (MLS), the National Football League (NFL), the National Basketball Association (NBA), rugby union, and international hockey all use Apex devices.
The STATSports Apex system, which is worn as a vest, monitors the performance of each player and offers immediate feedback to the coaching staff as well as the players themselves. This information contains a variety of metrics such as distance, speed, acceleration, deceleration, high-speed running, and heart rate.
This kind of data can be put to use to ensure that every player is performing at his or her very best when it comes time for games. Even more importantly, the device offers information regarding the load and level of weariness experienced by the athlete. When it comes to reducing the risk of injuries to players, both of these are significant signs that can be helpful.
A spokeswoman for Football Federation Australia said: “Our relationship with STATSports is tremendously exciting and will help mold a successful future for the Socceroos and Matildas.” “Our work with STATSports will help the Socceroos and Matildas have a bright future.”
We will be able to fine-tune our performance to obtain the best potential outcomes by moving to their APEX system, which allows us to take advantage of the most accurate GPS tracking technology that is currently available. The fact that STATSports has opened an office in Australia is a huge boon, and it also means that we can make use of the company’s remarkable customer service.
The technology developed by the Northern Irish corporation that began operations in 2007 has just recently been made accessible to the general public. The price at retail for the STATSports APEX Athlete Series is €279.99. It may be purchased at any location in the world by going to www.statsports.com.
“This latest deal with the Socceroos is a landmark for STATSports in Australia and rubber stamps the accuracy and quality of our technology,” said Sean O’Connor, co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer at STATSports. “This latest deal with the Socceroos rubber stamps the accuracy and quality of our technology.”
