Menlo Park, CA and New York, NY March 6, 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 the 2023 NWSL Champions, New Jersey/New York-based, Gotham FC.  On the heels of the NWSL’s deployment of the Performance Medicine Solution from Kitman Labs as its league-wide advanced EMR and securing their first title, Gotham FC will expand the use of iP: Intelligence Platform across the Club to include Performance Optimization.  

Gotham FC will now be able to combine player medical data with performance data (eg. game, training, gym, physical testing and more) in a centralized and fully integrated advanced operating system – eliminating information silos, enabling cross-Departmental communication and supporting evidence-based, data-led decision-making.   All relevant stakeholders across the team will now have access to a complete, real-time assessment of each athlete.  Both players and practitioners will be able to access and input data through a dedicated Coach and Player App to allow for real-time data capture on and off the pitch.  

“Our objective at Gotham FC is to set performance standards across the League and across the Sport.  To that end, we want to empower our coaches and players with the tools, resources and intelligence necessary to develop talent and unlock player potential.  Partnering with Kitman Labs allows us to not only unify our data and analytics, but enables us to collaborate at every level of the organization – on and off the pitch,” said  Julian Haigh, Gotham FC High Performance Director.  

“Fragmented data leads to fractured teams” said Stephen Smith, CEO and Founder of Kitman Labs.  “Our technology enables leagues and teams like NWSL and Gotham FC to mobilize their data and galvanize their staff and athletes with the actionable insights and intelligence necessary to compete at the most elite levels in sport.” 

Kitman Labs has an established track record of working with top leagues, teams and regulatory bodies across a variety of sports, including soccer, basketball, rugby, and American football.  The company’s technology is currently being used by leagues and teams within some of the world’s most elite sports organizations, including the National Football League (NFL), Premier League, Major League Soccer (MLS), National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU). 

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