Digital workouts set up players for next season

Player conditioning during the off-season is integral for success on the pitch once the season kicks off. As always, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) football players took advantage of the off-season to rest, and then trained to ensure they were in peak physical condition for the season start. Ericsson, the club’s digital experience partner, shows how digital analysis improves training for Paris Saint-Germain, ensuring that the players are at the top of their game.

Digital experience in a league of its own

"We are delighted to welcome Ericsson to the Paris Saint-Germain family. One of our aims as a club is to become one of the top sports franchises in the world, and digital transformation is clearly a key priority."

- Frédéric Longuépée, Paris Saint-Germain Deputy General Manager

Paris Saint-Germain and Ericsson have partnered to jointly innovate across three areas: a sports performance information system; a digital experience backend system; and technology consulting and innovation services.

Total football solution

At Paris Saint-Germain, talent isn't only found on the field. Top performers from the club's IT team will combine with Ericsson. And with the full range of our solutions and services available, we will work together to develop a winning strategy for transforming the club’s digital experience. All of Paris Saint-Germain's business, all of their teams, all of their followers – connected, networked, and always on the ball. When the iconic Parc des Princes stadium fills with passionate fans, great network coverage will just be the start of the challenge. Paris Saint-Germain’s digital platforms for data storage, web site, mobile apps, and big screens for broadcast and replays will all add up to the ultimate onsite fan experience.

A winning strategy

Together, we will pursue Paris Saint-Germain's goal of becoming the most digitally advanced team in the game, following a triple-pronged winning strategy.

Soccer players

The first element of our collaboration is the new Paris Saint-Germain Sports Performance Information System, a centrally managed data storage platform – operated by Ericsson as a service – designed to capture and control data from all of the club’s sports-related businesses. Powerful data visualization will give Paris Saint-Germain unprecedented insight into scouting, player health, scheduling, and much more.

Paris Saint-Germain supporters

Experience is everything in sports, and that’s where the second element of our partnership comes in. The Paris Saint-Germain Digital Experience platform will power web sites for mobile and desktop, apps, and in-stadium screens. Built on our trusted Ericsson Network Event platform, it will go beyond standard data sources, also capturing news, weather, traffic, and in-stadium food and beverage updates for the total game-day experience.

Paris Saint-Germain

Winning teams always innovate, so the third element of our partnership draws on our technology consulting and innovation capabilities. A joint team of Ericsson innovators and Paris Saint-Germain staff will analyze and define new solutions, applications, techniques, and use cases, so that this great club stays one step ahead of the competition.
