Digitalisation and technology tend to find their way into every area of life where they can offer some added value. Sport is no exception. The latest innovation conquering the sports world is athlete tracking through real-time locating systems (RTLS). The efficient use of data collected by wearable tags is proving to be a real game changer for the industry.
This is because data can enhance both the performance of athletes and the enjoyment of spectators. Location and biometric tracking offer huge possibilities for coaches and their athletes, but tracking is not only for professionals. Tracking applications can make sports more interesting and fun at all skill levels. Furthermore, the generated data can make sports more entertaining for those who sit in front of a TV or at a venue cheering for their favourite teams.
