Brazil football team signs up with Newry sports stats firm
Newry sports analytic firm STATSports has signed a deal with the Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) to provide its player monitoring APEX device just ahead of the World Cup.
The long-term contract follows on from STATsport's £1bn deal with the US Soccer Federation in recent weeks.
Co-founder of the company Sean O'Connor said: "For the CBF to swap performance monitoring provider at this stage in the build-up to a World Cup is a huge decision and illustrates the excellence of the Apex system which is used by dozens of international football's leading nations."
The national sides include Germany, Portugal, Belgium, England, Poland, Denmark and Morocco.
