Football’s Secret Weapon: TSG Hoffenheim Uses Innovative Technology to Optimize Soccer Training

Learn how 1899 TSG Hoffenheim, a soccer club in Germany’s premier league (Bundesliga), is taking the training of its professional soccer players to the next level by capturing and analyzing a wealth of data in real time, including spatial analysis of player movements, with SAP HANA.

We are working on equipping every player with sensors during training, either in a piece of clothing or in the shin guards. We also have a sensor system in the playing object - the ball. All of these sensors provide us with immense possibilities thanks to SAP HANA. The coaching staff is able to respond so quickly because SAP HANA provides data to us in real time.
