NEW GPS PARTNER AT DFC

Thursday 19th May 2022

DUMBARTON FC is pleased to announce our new GPS partner.

We are excited to bring you news of the club's first GPS partner, PlayerData.

Our players are now using state-of-the-art PlayerData Edge units at training and on matchday. The live data allows our coaches to view stats from each player and use information gathered to make data driven, real time decisions.

Dumbarton will be the one of the Edinburgh-based company's first senior team acquisitions in their rapidly expanding portfolio.

Dumbarton director Colin Piechniczek said: "I'd like to thank PlayerData Head of Commercial, Mark Kirkup, for helping to get the agreement over the line.

"I know Stevie (Farrell) was keen to start using the new system as soon as possible and all at the club are looking forward to sharing some key insights from matches on a weekly basis and it's an important tool to enable us to identify and exploit every area of improvement for the coming pre-season."

On the partnership, Chairman, Neil Mackay said: "Firstly, credit to Colin for sourcing the company and thanks, also, to Colin for negotiating the deal, agreeing a favourable financial structure.

"I think this represents a great opportunity to gain invaluable insights into various aspects of player performance.

"Not only will it greatly assist the coaching staff at the club, it also presents an opening to engage meaningfully with our supporters when they are looking for tangible feedback on match-days”
