Introduction

Artificial intelligence continues to grow day by day on different sectors – the sports sector is no stranger to this growth.

The advancement of AI technology has revolutionized the way sports are played, coached, and watched.

A new introduction to this is Footbar tracker – a wearable tracking device specifically designed for footballers.

Where did Footbar originate?

Footbar football tracking device was first developed in France with big names in sports behind its formation as shareholders and partners such as Stéphane Martin (ex-CEO, Girondins de Bordeaux FC), Cédric Bakambu (Forward player, Olympiacos FC), Pierre Gasly (Formula 1 driver, Alpine) &Tony Jalinier (CEO, Le Five).

Footbar in the Middle East

The brand has established a headquarter in the technology hub of the Middle East – Dubai, UAE last year.

What exactly is Footbar and how does it work?

The FOOTBAR tracker is an accurate, reliable and easy to use football tracking device that allows players of all ages and ability to accurately measure and compare their performances through a user-friendly mobile application.

Dozens of football-specific criteria – such as distance travelled, real play time, number of short passes, number of long passes, shooting speed, distribution of runs, and even sprint speed – the Footbar sensor assesses performance.

This analysis highlights the player’s style of play and even allows them to compare their stats to professional players!

The Footbar sensor detects and records leg movements using an accelerometer. Next, its artificial intelligence gets to work. It understands what the player is doing on the pitch and translates that into raw data.

Light and non-intrusive, it quietly records your sessions in details – the Footbar tracker is thin and only weighs 9g and does not interfere with any movement and you almost forget its presence during the sessions.

Footbar’s certification with THE FOOTBALL DUTCH FEDERATION

Footbar is designed to revolutionize a player’s football experience. Thanks to the sensor, one can now analyze their match and track their performance on their smartphones.

The accuracy and reliability of Footbar data are certified by the KNVB, the Dutch Football Federation.

An ambitious program to roll out Footbar across all Dutch football players is in progress.

Statement from Footbar Middle East Co-Founder

With our association with some of the biggest names in the football industry such as Youth Football League, Dubai Amateur Football League, Ajman Football Club & French Football Academy in Saudi Arabia – we are looking forward how this revolutionary device will takeover the football scene here in the Middle East.”
