Sports technology is evolving fast, and most sports utilize technological innovations driven by Artificial Intelligence to monitor and analyze performances. In Soccer, at a professional level and in collegiate clubs, GPS monitors are used to analyze player performance. FIFA, the international governing body of association football, beach football and futsa, has approved wearable GPS tracking solutions during professional games.
However, these tracking solutions still need to be within reach for amateur and aspiring soccer players. An affordable and technologically superior GPS analytical solution can be of much more help to amateurs and budding soccer stars as it will allow them to understand the nuances of their performance and better their game.
