Football Queensland (FQ) is pleased to announce a partnership with PLAYR, the football GPS tracking system designed by leading elite sports tech brand, Catapult Sports.
Designed for players wanting to train and play like a professional, PLAYR combines the latest GPS player tracking technology with personalised sports science to help take players’ performance to the next level.
The PLAYR system includes a SmartPod GPS Tracker, SmartVest and PLAYR app to measure players’ speed, distance, power, sprint distance and positional heat maps, while the built-in SmartCoach analyses players’ performance data and provides in-app preparation, performance and recovery advice.
PLAYR is also the first player-led team solution available to amateur coaches, who can use it to monitor squad performance without having to take charge of the technology themselves, as they would in a professional training environment.
“We’re excited to have PLAYR on board to offer our Queensland players and coaches access to elite-standard technology to improve their performance,” FQ CEO Richard Griffiths said.
“By providing access to performance data to players at all levels of the game, we can continue to increase the professional standard of football in Queensland.”
PLAYR CEO Benoit Simeray said he was equally excited to partner with FQ.
“This partnership is a fantastic opportunity to support the football community in Queensland with tracking technology and sports science that has previously only been available to elite players and coaches,” Simeray said.
“With Catapult’s vast experience in professional football, we look forward to providing aspiring players in Queensland exclusive stats, insights and advice to improve their performances on and off the pitch.”
