🔰 FIFA has turned Camp Nou into a testing ground for monitoring systems that collect data during games.
It is hoped that the tests will lead to more effective data tracking that can assist coaches with match preparation, aid player medical treatment and supply more insight to broadcasters.
The monitoring systems of 13 data tracking companies have been subjected to the tests, including Track160, Catapult, STATSports, and Fitogether. The trials, which have been carried out during October by researchers from Australia’s University of Victoria, were specifically focused on the positioning and speed of players.
