The PSG academy has produced some of the most talented players in French football history and become one of the best football academies in Europe. When it comes to Paris Saint-Germain's young stars and their exits from the club, the list is long, and all indications suggest it will keep getting longer and longer.
We are honored to announce that PSG academy is continuing to produce young footballing talent with Next11 tracking in order to measure multiple teams consistently across all levels. Next11 tracking is designed to support the development of individual athletes and help transition players from one level to the next based on performance data.
“We chose to use Next11 because the tool allows us to be more precise on the quantification of the workload in the development of the player. Coaches can also use it in matches to get a clear idea of the player’s intensity level compared to his reference value. Finally, the calculation of the team load allows us to really see where we are in relation to our reference match and therefore to adapt our interventions. The tool is very easy to use and especially on data processing. It is much more readable for the trainer and the player. We are in a hurry to have the evolution ofNext11 with in particular the use of technical and tactical data. This will be a real plus for the training of our young people.”
