This partnership represents a significant development in how clubs and the Premier League can use data to support elite player development and personal growth across all club academies.
Kitman Labs and the Columbus Crew are both deeply committed to fundamentally changing how data is used in sport to optimise performance, reduce injury risk, support operations, and ultimately drive success across every aspect of the organisation, from the First Team, through Crew 2 and to the Academy.
The Intelligence Platform has given us a data system that we can call our own, and the Kitman Labs team itself has been great with helping us make sense of it all, while also giving us a push in areas where we could be doing even more with our data.

Outcome Stories

Oakland Roots

From Siloed to a Single View

Data was never a problem for Oakland Roots SC. But stuck with outdated spreadsheet tools and inundated with data, they weren’t able to efficiently share or learn from anything they collected. Kitman Labs gave them a consolidated view that joined together everything from practise planning to player development, giving them objective scores and ratings, and bringing together medical, technical and performance data under one roof.

Burnley F.C.

Driving Organisational Efficiency

Burnley F.C. has always seen data and tech as especially critical in the world of football, so they understand that the organisational structure around data is as important as the data itself. With Kitman Labs, Burnley has been able to create efficiency in all their departments, from sports science to recruitment and coaching, and to bring those departments together with a single view of data across the organisation.

Malmö FF

Future Proofing the Organisation

Malmo FF has been around for over 100 years, but their focus remains steadily on the future. Their player management tools had limited scope and capabilities, meaning they couldn’t be as forward-thinking as they needed to drive success. Switching to Kitman Labs gave them a platform that allowed information to be shared openly and the customisation to plan and change as they need to, truly future-proofing their organisation.
