Menlo Park, California and Prague, Czech Republic (March 12, 2024) – Kitman Labs, the global enterprise SaaS platform providing the only single, centralized operating system for performance intelligence in the elite performance industry, today announced a new deal with Czech First League Football Club, Sparta Prague.  The Club will leverage several Solutions in iP: Intelligence Platform, including: Performance Medicine, Performance Optimization and Coaching & Development.  The Platform combines medical, performance, coaching and talent development data into a single, integrated system that yields actionable intelligence to support specific operating and performance outcomes.  

iP will serve as the singular advanced operating system for the Club – eliminating data and information silos, enabling cross-departmental communication and providing transparency and alignment across all stakeholders.  iP will centralize and combine Medical, Performance, Coaching and Talent Development data – providing practitioners with the insights and analytics necessary to support informed, evidence-based decision-making in real-time.

“We are thrilled to be entering the Czech market with Sparta Prague – a Club driven by innovation, a mission to elevate performance and a team at the top of the ladder in the Czech First League, ” said Stephen Smith, CEO and Founder of Kitman Labs.  “The Intelligence Platform has been designed to convert data into actionable insights.  Data alone has limited value.  The return on investment comes from the ability to leverage that data to help inform strategic and tactical decision-making and this is a team that clearly understands that value.”

“As a high performing Club with the vision and clear intention of having the deepest possible knowledge about our athletes’ data, our challenge is ensuring the right data is being collected, integrated and shared across all relevant stakeholders and that the analytics capabilities are in place to convert that information into practical, useful insights that help achieve our performance goals,” said Christian Clarup, SC Sparta Praha, Head of Performance.  “By partnering with Kitman Labs and deploying iP, our team has the tooling to get us one step further.”

The company’s technology has been used by teams in some of the world’s most elite sports organizations and universities including the NFL, NBA, Premier League, MLS and NCAA.

This launch follows other recent business strategy moves Kitman Labs has undertaken including two strategic acquisitions of The Sports Office and Presagia Sports, both made in the last two years. The combined companies represent the industry’s largest network of elite and youth organizations (2000+) and created the industry’s largest dataset of talent, performance, and medical data for all stages of the athlete lifecycle.
