Catapult Sports will provide leading athlete performance technology to all twelve Super League clubs and the England team in 2018 in a league-wide deal done with the RFL.

Catapult will supply 390 S5 tracking units and embed the company’s monitoring platform amongst all twelve teams for training and matches. The co-operation will also explore live match-day tracking using Catapult’s ClearSky technology.

The partnership will also investigate data commercialisation opportunities to use live metrics from games.

The RFL’s Roger Draper said: “Catapult’s wearable analytics will be deployed to all twelve of our Super League teams, having already been used by the England Men’s National Team at the Rugby League World Cup 2017.

“The RFL have long been associated with technology innovation and our partnership with Catapult enhances our technology credentials as we explore new opportunities for live match-day tracking and grassroots wearables.”

“We selected Catapult for their analytics platform capabilities, their service model and the opportunity to explore new commercial opportunities. We are extremely excited about the partnership for the Super League and our teams.”

Joe Powell, Catapult’s CEO said: “We’re delighted to be able to work in partnership with the RFL and the Super League as they ramp up their use of innovative technology to enhance performance amongst their athletes and teams.

“We’re equally excited to explore potential data broadcast opportunities, following the success of this year’s State of Origin project. The pursuit of league-wide deals continues to be a key focus for us here at Catapult
