Dan was introduced to PlayerMaker in January 2018. Previously, he was only familiar with the use of physical performance data in clubs but when he heard that it was possible for me to track technical and tactical analysis on players, he understood the coaching benefits right away.
“Quite simply, the players put the sensors on their boots before entering the field; we deliver the session and 5 minutes after training finishes, we already have the data on the team’s profile page within the PlayerMaker dashboard”
A few months later, Millwall FC Academy decided to implement the PlayerMaker smart footwear for the U16s team as well, bringing Jim Summersby, the Sports Scientist for this age group into the conversation in order to further understand how to correlate the physical data with the technical and tactical data in the reports produced for the coaching staff.
