We are pleased to announce that Villarreal CF becomes the first team to use Metrica Sports tactical analysis services.
The 2013/14 Spanish League saw Villarreal CF climbing up to the 6th position and established them as one of the strongest teams in Spain. Next season they will face 3 competitions (Liga BBVA, Copa del rey and Europa League) guided by one of the most solid Coaching Staffs in Europe and featuring players like Mateo Musacchio and Jonathan Dos Santos.
With the objective of making a success out of the challenging next season, Villarreal CF has decided to contract Metrica Sports to support their tactical analysis, becoming the first club to take advantage of our advanced tracking technology and customized data analysis tools for both their home and away matches.
“We believe that Metrica Sports will help us by reducing the time we spent nowadays in tactical analysis, making it more efficient, and empowering the communication with our players through strong facts in a visual and intuitive way”, said Marcelino García Toral, Head Coach of Villarreal CF.
We look forward to working closely with Villarreal CF and support their players and coaches with state of the art tactical analysis services.
