Fulham boost performance and medical data strategies with Kitman Labs deal

February 21 – Premier League Fulham have announced a new partnership with global enterprise software platform Kitman Labs.

The partnership will enable the Premier League club’s medical and performance data team to access Kitman Labs’ Performance Medicine, Performance Optimisation and Coaching & Development Solutions.

By incorporating medical, performance, and talent development data, Fulham’s teams will have access to a unified interactive platform. The objective is to elevate player performance outcomes and provide valuable insights into talent development strategies.

Kitman Labs and the Premier League announced the launch of the Football Intelligence Platform for all Academies last month – a partnership that has encouraged the move towards Fulham.

“The traditional approach to simply collecting medical and performance data will no longer suffice.  We needed a single system that combines diverse sets of data across the organization. One that ensures accuracy of information, allows the information to be shared and utilized in real time, and supports planning and player health and development with actionable insights” said Chris Hanson, head of medical at Fulham.

Kitman Labs’ technology has been adopted by several clubs in Europe, including Bayer Leverkusen, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Sporting Lisbon.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Fulham FC – one of the most accomplished and storied football clubs in the English Premier League – helping to bring innovation to how medical and performance data and analytics are being leveraged across the entire organization to inform strategy and decision-making with objective, analytics-based insights,” said Stephen Smith, CEO and Founder of Kitman Labs.

Fulham travel to Old Trafford for their Saturday afternoon showdown versus Manchester United in the Premier League. They currently sit 12th in the league table, with 29 points from 25 games.
