Ekstraklasa Live Park, the broadcast arm of Polish football league Ekstraklasa, has signed an agreement with ChyronHego to equip all 16 of the league’s arenas with the Tracab image-based tracking system by the end of this year.
Tracab was selected to provide live tracking of all movement of players and the ball on the field, and Ekstraklasa Park Live will use the resulting player performance data to enhance its live coverage of close to 300 LOTTO Ekstraklasa matches. “It means that we will be collecting match data at the same level as other top European leagues,” said Marcin Animucki, vice president of Ekstraklasa.
“This is also important in relation to the sale of our media rights, starting with the 2019/2020 season.
“We want to share this data not only in TV broadcasts, but also in media reports, on our online channels and, in the future, on our mobile app. After installation of the system in all of our stadiums, we will also be helping coaches and coaching staff by providing them with unique fitness data.”
