Aston Villa choose Catapult to power athlete monitoring across all squads
Catapult has agreed a deal with Aston Villa that will see the club use Catapult’s athlete monitoring technology at all levels, from the senior team to academy squads over the coming seasons.
Providing Aston Villa with 80 S5 devices and dedicated product support, Catapult will work closely with the club’s sports science department as they seek to optimise performance, reduce injury risk and support return-to-play processes.
Jack Sharkey, Lead Sport Scientist at Aston Villa, said: “At Aston Villa we’re always striving to improve our workflows and generate competitive advantage wherever possible. We chose to use Catapult because of their track record of sports science innovation and we look forward to seeing their technology make a positive difference to the work we do at the club.”
Curt Taylor, Catapult’s Director of Sales for UK & Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with Aston Villa, one of the UK’s most historic and well-supported clubs. By implementing our technology, Villa will be supporting their sports science operations with the industry’s leading athlete monitoring technology as they continue to develop their impressive performance infrastructure.”
