OM x STATSports
STATSports becomes the official GPS performance technology partner of Olympique de Marseille.
STATSports is the world's leading provider of on-field performance tracking and analysis in sport at all levels.
Based in Ireland, their aim is to provide teams around the world with testing equipment that provides highly accurate data to help them improve their performance. The device developed by STATSports addresses the constant need of a coach around the performance and well-being of his players.
This partnership will provide staff members from the different Olympique de Marseille teams with the possibility to collect real-time and instantaneous performance data on their players. This data is available and can be communicated to the coaching staff within seconds. The data can then be analysed and processed in detail by the staff members post-training or matchday. The solution provides data such as maximum speed, total distance, high intensity distance, sprint distance, distance per minute, accelerations and decelerations.
This initiative is part of the club's commitment to using data technology to improve its performance.
Sean O’Connor, Co-Founder of STATSports : “We are delighted to partner with Olympique de Marseille. They are an established clubbrand in European football and we're delighted to see them back in the Champions League. OM teams will use the technology and with added training ground infrastructure, the club is building for the future. With every new sports team we partner it enables us to cement and develop our technology and take all our athletes and sporting clients to the next level. Our Footprint in French football is growing with Olympique Marseille among our partners in the country.”
Matthieu Bouchéepillon, Performance Director of OM : "We have conducted a thorough benchmark on a very competitive market that is constantly expanding and STATSports came out first. Data quality, software ease of use for the practitioners as well as customer support were amongst the key reasons for our choice. With increasing emphasis on physical performance at all levels of the club it was also important for us to work with leaders on their market and that’s what we are doing with this partnership.”
