The Sports Office has renewed agreement with leading Sky Bet Championship club Brentford FC to supply the Football Squad, the online performance management system for elite soccer.
The system, used by clubs, academies and federations throughout the world, supports executives, managers, coaches, medical staff and conditioners. It provides an extensive range of features including coaching, video, sports science, sports medicine, finance, scouting, recruitment, squad management and intra-club communication. It also offers extensive statistical analysis for football, training load management and allows the personalisation of player performance and development plans. Brentford FC have used the Football Squad since the 2017 season.
Commenting on their decision to renew their agreement to use The Sports Office football performance management system, the club’s Technical Director Robert Rowan said: “The Sports Office has essentially become our ‘one club system’, we have the various different departments at the Football Club using the same system to prepare, monitor and review their work on a daily basis, whilst having the ability to openly interact with other departments and share best practice.
He added: “The flexibility within personalising the system has allowed us to structure Football Squad based upon the clubs philosophies within Coaching, Scouting, Sports Science, Medical and Analysis, whilst the Administration aspect has provided a much more organised and accessible database for important information.”
Sports Office Client Manager Dan Jackson said: “ We are delighted that Brentford FC have chosen to renew their agreement and maintain their use of the Football Squad, our online performance management system for elite soccer.
“We are confident it will provide the club with the required support and underpin all aspects of their football operations.”
Brentford part of broad football client-base
Brentford FC are among the most progressive clubs in the Sky Bet Championship. The “Bees” have recently announced ambitious plans to move to a new 17,250-seat stadium by the end of 2019. It is expected the switch will help them to further develop commercially and attract new audiences.
The Sports Office provides football performance management systems to more than 100 professional clubs, competing in the world’s most high-profile competitions, including the English Premier League, the Sky Bet Championship and Italy’s Serie A.
A new application to support Managers, Sporting Directors and other top-level executives in elite football is one of the recent system enhancements. This ‘Managers App’ gives immediate access to a highly relevant and tailored snapshot of key performance data and critical management information. It functions by pulling through and streamlining real-time information from Sports Office performance management systems, already operating within an elite football organisation.
Several major national sports governing bodies and football academies have also chosen to adopt The Sports Office athlete monitoring systems. One of these is the Scottish FA, who use it throughout their structures, including for all their national teams and at all seven of their Performance Schools. Elsewhere in the world of elite sport, clients include the RFU, Aviva Premiership rugby clubs, the British Horseracing Authority, professional cycling teams and clubs in Rugby League’s Super League.
