Clubforce has teamed up with STATSports in a move that will advance the creation of a sports technology ecosystem that will be accessible to all clubs and not just for those teams at the elite end of sport.
The Galway based company has transformed the way sports clubs are managed from an administration perspective and is now in place in over 2,000 clubs across Ireland and further afield.
It is a long term member of the Sport for Business community and these are exciting times for Warren Healy and the team he leads.
Clubforce technology is best known for allowing volunteers, parents and players to work together effectively, receiving the right information at the right time so everyone can participate to their very best.
The software company has been operating in Ireland since 2008 and has pioneered automation technology in this space by listening carefully to clubs and volunteers across the country and now more recently internationally.
STATSports provides an all-encompassing sports science and performance analysis service within the elite sporting industry.
They have advanced the application of sports science within high-profile sporting organisations including Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Brazil, South Africa Rugby, the New York Yankees, Miami Dolphins, Tyrone and Dublin Gaelic football and Galway Hurling.
In 2017, STATSports launched their revolutionary APEX device which is worn by athletes during training sessions. Only last week we wrote about their expansion to a consumer audience in the United States launching their first TV advertisement in that market.
“We are thrilled to partner with a technology company like STATSports,” said CEO Warren Healy.
“Their story is inspirational, and our global ambitions are shared. Both teams are on a mission to build an ecosystem for the future so the industry can bring the benefits of sports to as many people as we can worldwide.”
“We’re incredibly excited at Clubforce as we know exactly what the STATSports technology can generate for our customers.”
“Strategic partnership is important to STATSports,” added co-founder Sean O’Connor.
“It’s never a case of signing on with other organisations for the sake of it. Clubforce are another thriving Irish company in the technology space who complement our core mission in helping sports teams reach their ultimate potential.”
“We offer these teams and their staff their time back with the best performance analysis technology platforms in the industry. Clubforce provides a similar service to their clients with their all-in-one club management platform. We’re a good match and we’re delighted to synergise with them.”
The Sport for Business Perspective:
The measured athlete and in turn the measured self is one of the technology game changers that is filtering quickly from the very top of sport to everyone who pulls on a shirt or laces up a shoe. This combination of two strong and ambitious Irish companies is a marker for how Ireland can be a global hub for sports techno0logy and innovation.
“A powerful and influential network of information and collaboration”
