Education a Key Building Block in Hudl’s Partnership with Belgian Football

Providing cut­ting-edge tech­nol­o­gy for analysing live match­es and train­ing ses­sions is at the heart of our deal with Belgian foot­ball, but the long-term sus­tain­abil­i­ty of this project rests with education.

To best utilise the new tech­nol­o­gy now pro­vid­ed to clubs in Belgium, edu­ca­tion­al cours­es run by Hudl will upskill and pro­vide sup­port to coach­es and ana­lysts in Belgium.

Initial work­shops have already been run out of the RBFA head­quar­ters in Tubize to cov­er the new wide-angle cap­ture sys­tem, with fur­ther cours­es tak­ing place dur­ing the season.

The idea of edu­ca­tion is not just to upskill cur­rent ana­lysts in using new tools at their dis­pos­al, but also to dri­ve the lev­el of Belgian ana­lysts upwards over time.

RBFA Head of Performance Analysis and Innovation Luke Benstead believes edu­ca­tion is a key pil­lar for the devel­op­ment of the Belgian analyst. 

This deal is noth­ing with­out the edu­ca­tion­al sup­port that Hudl have pro­vid­ed,” said Benstead. The best thing about Hudl is they under­stood that the jour­ney these ana­lysts would go on, that they need to go on with them as well.”

Club Brugge acad­e­my ana­lyst Jelmer Platteeuw was an attendee at the ini­tial work­shops and has already seen the val­ue in the ongo­ing edu­ca­tion that will be provided.

The Hudl cours­es, they helped me quite a lot dur­ing my devel­op­ment as an ana­lyst,” said Platteeuw. But also Hudl and Sportscode were real­ly new for me, and through these cours­es, I learned quite fast the spec­i­fi­ca­tions of Hudl and Sportscode.”
