Manchester City Continues Data Partnership With SAP

By Sree Varma | December 19, 2018

Premier League championship club Manchester City has extended its long-term global partnership with SAP, to bring new technology to the team’s bench during matches.

Already using SAP Challenger Insights to get tailored in-game data for both men and women’s teams, the club will now give the ability to its coaches and players to use the software from the bench during the games.

Bernd Leukert, Member of the Executive Board of SAP SE, Products & Innovation, said: “The partnership between Manchester City and SAP continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with technology.”

“As one of the first teams in the English Premier League to bring data onto the touchlines, the Club can now access the most complete view of an opponent’s setup during a match to optimise training, preparation and performance.”

City all-time scoring leader Sergio Aguero said: “SAP Challenger Insights helps bring the coaches’ instructions to life so I have a constant reminder of how we are approaching each different game.”
