    Red face GPS Tracking of Football Players

    GPS Tracking of Players

    GPS Technology is just starting to enter the market in football, but many believe it will become more popular in the coming years. It has already significantly influenced the game of football by affecting players, coaches, trainers, and sport performance. For athletes to stay competitive and reach their goals, they have to work harder than their competition. This is becoming easier for all players with the emergence of GPS tracking in football. According to Catapult Sports, GPS technology is used for players’ performance and work tracking for several reasons:
    Make better use of training time
    Make training meet game demands
    Improves clubs’ tactical analysis
    Compare player performance and pick the best players for the team
    Get players through rehab faster
    Make periodisation model work

    In essence, the GPS tracking of players today is used to gather useful data on different aspects of players’ performance in football. GPS tracking of players allows the measurement and monitoring of players’ speed and distance performed during a game or a training session. Several manufacturers have sports GPS units that enable users to determine speed and mileage. GPS tracking is also used to measure players’ heart rate, pace, recovery time, and the amount of dynamic acceleration. GPS technology has become useful to the football community because the measurements that can be made as the system picks up different satellite signals as it changes location are speed, distance, and dynamics. These measures are critically useful as these variables reflect a great percentage of the competitiveness of football players on the field.

    Definitely a great use of the tech available, wonder how long it will be before fans at home can watch the data of their favourite players in real time as well
