The Power of Video Analysis and Athlete Monitoring
Catapult’s MatchTracker software solution provides teams with pre-match planning, live match analysis, and post-match review. Through using MatchTracker, every performance dataset is automatically connected video and filterable alongside video and a variety of visualisations.
Moreover, MatchTracker is the first analysis platform to fully integrate players’ physical data captured by Vector wearable devices. Player outputs such as maximum speed, intensity, distance covered, and player load are connected videos with a click of a button. Now FC St. Pauli, can quickly identify players involved in key moments and analyze performance related to their physical outputs.
According to the club’s video analyst, Ole Marschall, MatchTracker offers “unprecedented efficiency in the analysis of individual/group and team tactical behaviour” and “great added value for preparing training sessions and matches.”
