Oxford United Extend Partnership with Catapult Sports

Global performance technology leaders continue support of the club

10 November 2021

Oxford United are excited to announce they have extended their partnership with the global performance technology leaders, Catapult Sports until 2025.

Catapult’s wearable technology and performance analysis solutions provide comprehensive data and insights that enable teams to make high-quality, informed decisions faster than ever before.

Operating at the intersection of sports science and analytics, Catapult solutions are designed to optimise performance, mitigate injury risk, and support the return to training and competition. 

Catapult is a pioneer in this industry with unique experience and has been innovating on behalf of the world’s best sports teams since 2007, including annual re-accreditations from FIFA and other elite leagues.

The most powerful dual GPS/LPS wearable devices available are a key piece of equipment supplied to the club. Catapult Vector delivers live algorithms, performance insights and functionality to coaches and athletes.

These real-time insights give coaches an objective view of player performance with physical metrics such as high intensity distance, maximal velocity, accelerations, changes of direction and heart rate.

With this data and insights, performance staff can make better informed decisions faster than ever before, about their players' performance and rehabilitation.

Director of Performance at the club, Chris Neville told us

“We are delighted to extend our relationship with Catapult. In addition to our senior men and academy teams, Catapult are also supplying tracking systems to our women’s teams, which enables us to be consistent in the way we use the data across all our pathways.

“As a premium tracking product in professional football, this technology continues to provide us with another layer of information in our support for our players, management and performance teams.”

Director of Sales, UK & Ireland at Catapult, Curt Taylor said, “Having worked with Oxford United since 2016 when The U’s first implemented Catapult Sports technology for the First Team, I am delighted that the club have signed a new long-term agreement with Catapult Sports until 2025, increasing their technology investment to cover the Men’s First Team and Academy as well as the Women’s squads too.

“I look forward to working closely with Chris and his performance team over the coming seasons, providing the team with a platform of services that provides consistency across all the club’s performance pathways and supports the departments immediate and long-term objectives”.
