Clubforce and STATSports team up to make sport accessible for all

The Irish business providing over 2,000 clubs – many of them in Mayo – with sports club automation has teamed up with STATSports to make sport accessible for all.

The partnership between Clubforce and STATSports will be another step in creating a sports technology ecosystem for the future, one which makes sport inclusive by making advanced performance analysis accessible to all.

STATSports provides an all-encompassing, unparalleled sports science and performance analysis service within the elite sporting industry. They have advanced the application of sports science within the high-profile sporting organisations of their growing client list.

Some of their global clients include Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Brazil, South Africa Rugby, New York Yankees, Miami Dolphins, Tyrone, Dublin football and Galway hurling.

In 2017, STATSports launched their revolutionary APEX device which is worn by athletes during training sessions.

Clubforce, meanwhile, has transformed the way sports clubs are managed and is the leading club automation platform used by teams worldwide to unify their members, take the pain from admin and drive fundraising forward. Clubforce technology allows volunteers, parents and players alike to work together effectively, receiving the right information at the right time so everyone can participate to their very best.

The software company has been operating in Ireland since 2009 and has pioneered automation technology in this space by listening carefully to clubs and volunteers across the country and, more recently, internationally. Clubforce’s mission is to make sport accessible for all while also creating joy, health and physical wellbeing amongst the community.

Last month the company entered a strategic partnership with Output Sports to help customer clubs improve and enhance players' performance by enabling them to monitor and track their performance. Clubforce continues to grow its technology partnership footprint and is also the official partner of the Federation of Irish Sports and Connacht Rugby.

STATSports co-founder and CCO Sean O’Connor remarked: “Strategic partnership is important to STATSports. It’s never a case of signing-on with other organisations for the sake of it. Clubforce are another thriving Irish company in the technology space who complement our core mission in helping sports teams reach their ultimate potential.

“We offer these teams and their staff their time back with the best performance analysis technology platforms in the industry. Clubforce provide a similar service to their clients with their all-in-one club management platform. We’re a good match and we’re delighted to synergise with them.”

Responding to the announcement, Warren Healy, CEO of Clubforce, commented: “We are thrilled to partner with a technology company like STATSports. Their story is inspirational and our global ambitions are shared. Both teams are on a mission to build an eco-system for the future so the industry can bring the benefits of sports to as many people as we can worldwide.

“We’re incredibly excited at Clubforce as we know exactly what the STATSports technology can generate for our customers.”
