A host of England footballers have become the latest investors in UK-based sports GPS tracking system STATSports.

England captains Harry Kane and Steph Houghton, as well as Harry Maguire, Phil Foden, and Calum Chambers have all joined Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Raheem Sterling as investors in the company as well as global ambassadors.

StatSports currently counts clients including the England national team and a number of Premier League clubs. The tech will also be used at this summer’s UEFA EURO 2020 by other teams such as Germany, Belgium, Portugal and Scotland.

The five new investors, along with Sterling and Oxlade-Chamberlain are all familiar with the company’s products, having used the technology with their respective clubs as well as with their country. 

The full STATSports ‘ squad will debut as ambassadors for the brand in a new TV advert this week promoting the consumer version of the system, the Apex Athlete Series

“This technology is now an essential part of the professional game. It allows us to talk in facts in the assessment of our performance, with both club and country,” said England captain Kane.

“I love the idea of young footballers being able to do the same as they work to make it in the game. STATSports’ technology at all levels is only going to grow and I’m looking forward to being part of that.” 

STATSports co-founder and COO, Sean O’Connor, added: “We’re really excited to welcome such an outstanding group of elite players into the STATSports family. We believe what we are doing is at the cutting edge and to have the interest we have from the top of the game proves that. 

“Their knowledge of the game and levels of performance will help us to develop our systems and continue to push the limits on technology helping players and teams exceed expectations.”
