Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) performance intelligence platform Kitman Labs has extended the scope of its partnership with Fulham FC

The partnership will enable the Premier League club’s medical and performance data team to access Kitman Labs’ Performance Medicine, Performance Optimisation and Coaching & Development Solutions. 

These offerings will enable Fulham’s teams to combine medical, performance and talent development data into a single interactive platform to help boost player performance outcomes and inform them of talent development strategies. 

By deploying the Intelligence Platform across the Men’s First Team and Women’s Teams, Fulham will now also integrate the whole club solution. This is intended to serve “cross-departmental collaboration, eliminate data and information silos, and provide internal stakeholders with a complete, unified view of each athlete for the purposes of unlocking performance potential and expanding player pathways”.

Chris Hanson, Head of Medical at Fulham FC, said: “The traditional approach to simply collecting medical and performance data will no longer suffice. We needed a single system that combines diverse sets of data across the organisation. One that ensures accuracy of information, allows the information to be shared and utilised in real time, and supports planning and player health and development with actionable insights. 

“Our recent transition to the Kitman Labs Intelligence Platform has allowed us to continue to improve and manage the processes relating to the capture, cleaning, enrichment, and analysis of our football related data. It’s continued to support our evolving commitments to interrogating data, interpreting results, and creating data-led insights and stories.

“We have been able to combine data sets from multiple disciplines and data streams to calculate, measure and evaluate impact for the purpose of player development. Furthermore, the platform has supported key stakeholders from across the ecology of the club to reason, reflect and strategise as a consequence of these data-led insights.”

Kitman Labs and the Premier League announced the launch of the Football Intelligence Platform for all Academies last month. 

The platform has an established track record of working with high-profile teams and leagues across a variety of sports, including football, basketball, rugby, and American football. 

The company’s technology has been used by some of the most recognisable football clubs across Europe, including Bayer Leverkusen, Chelsea FC, Liverpool FC and Sporting Lisbon. Kitman Labs also recently announced the launch and deployment of The Football Intelligence Platform across all Premier League Academies.

Stephen Smith, CEO and Founder of Kitman Labs, added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Fulham FC – one of the most accomplished and storied football clubs in the English Premier League – helping to bring innovation to how medical and performance data and analytics are being leveraged across the entire organisation to inform strategy and decision-making with objective, analytics-based insights.”
