2013 Big Year for Sports Technology Pioneer GPSports

CANBERRA, Australia January 10, 2014—Globally Positioning Sport (GPSports) is proud to announce the success of the SPI HPU unit and SPI IQ software along with the success of the teams that use it.

In 2013 our teams collectively won a rugby World Cup championship, UEFA Europa League championship, a National Rugby League Championship, Coach of the Year, two Players of the Year and a Thailand Premier League Championship.

“2013 was the best year on record for GPSports,” said Managing Director Adrian Faccioni.  “It has been through the close working relationship with many of our elite clients that we have been able to bring to the market amazing new features such as running symmetry, metabolic load, repeat sprint analysis and collision detection.

We have also been able to work closely with key clients in the implementation of our GPS technology to improve performance and reduce injuries – assisting the likes of the NRL Roosters, Rugby Reds and NFL Seahawks to name a few. Everyone in the company is looking forward to an exciting 2014.”

The SPI HPU unit is the smallest and most powerful sport GPS technology on the market.  It features smart two-way real time wireless data communication and its 16G accelerometer is the only device capable of measuring impacts over 10G.

The newest variables to the SPI IQ software are running symmetry, collision detection, metabolic power and repeat sprint efforts.  Besides having amazing features it’s also fast.  In ten minutes you can process the data and create a report for twenty players.

"There is no guess work and no hiding. Every aspect of training is planned and every performance is measured using GPSports technology. From rehabilitation to game specific fitness, GPSports provides the framework for excellence" 


Michael Cheika, NSW Waratahs Head Coach
