The Club is delighted to announce that we have signed a three-year deal with Catapult Sports.
A global leader in wearable technology and performance analytics, the Australian company has expanded in recent years, working across a variety of sports and countries.
Agreeing on a deal that includes the current 2021/22 season and the two following, Town will wear Catapult’s Vector S7 and G7 technology to assist our physical performance team’s day-to-day work and activity.
Recording thousands of data points per-second, the Catapult system will provide our physical performance team, sports scientists and technical staff with an in-depth view on all relevant metrics including speed, intensity, distance, volume and explosiveness, which gives the Club a better understanding of how the players are performing.
Town’s Head of Physical Performance, Paul Bower, shared how Catapult helps his team operate:
“I’m delighted to have Catapult’s technology as a tool within our physical performance department. Their tech allows us to make informed decisions regarding training, workloads and rehabilitation, with live tracking during both training sessions and matches.
“Gaining further understanding of individual differences between players, positions and age groups allows us to maximise physical development and performance, creating a seamless transition from our Academy and B Team to First Team level.
“Catapult gives us a more intricate understanding of the physical demands of our training regimes and longitudinal tracking of Championship football across the course of an intensive 46 game season.”
Curt Taylor, Director of UK and Ireland Sales for Catapult Sports commented:
“We’re delighted to be working alongside Huddersfield Town for at least the next three seasons and are proud to have the Club using the seventh generation of our award-winning technology.
“Catapult delivers the most accurate, innovative and reliable player monitoring technology available, and we couldn’t be happier to now have Town join our list of clients.”
