Manchester City and their Official Cloud Software Provider, SAP, have collaborated to bring real-time technology to the dugout during matches. City have taken full advantage of rule changes which now allow small technology devices pitch-side, allowing coaching staff to bring the latest tactics and player insights to the squad before they step onto the pitch.

Using SAP Challenger Insights, City’s analysts are able to load tactics, opposition insights and player data; before, during and after matches. Helping City to gain a better understanding of the opposition as well as areas of improvement for themselves.

City’s record goal scorer, Sergio Aguero, praised the technology: “SAP Challenger Insights helps bring the coaches’ instructions to life so I have a constant reminder of how we are approaching each different game.”

Manchester City’s women also use the tablet-based technology to help them gain a competitive advantage in all competitions.
