Hudl Pro Suite Brings Innovation to Training Ground Analysis

The pow­er of our part­ner­ship with Belgian foot­ball is not just restrict­ed to the match day — it also improves the analy­sis of train­ing sessions.

We vis­it­ed Club Brugge’s train­ing ground, where Hudl cam­eras are installed high above their train­ing pitch­es to allow for live tag­ging and analy­sis of train­ing ses­sions in the same man­ner that would take place dur­ing a live match scenario. 

Club Brugge lead per­for­mance ana­lyst John Bessell describes the val­ue of what Hudl cam­eras bring to their train­ing ground workflow.

We arrive, the coach­ing team dis­cuss obvi­ous­ly what they want to work on through­out the day and a big part of it for me is to see what drills are on where and what’s impor­tant for the ses­sion,” said Bessell. 

Then we look to pro­gram the cam­eras and I some­times man­u­al­ly con­trol with the joy­stick where we need to film. We also tag live, and the vision is to have live footage on the field as well to give imme­di­ate feedback.”

In terms of instal­la­tion, Bessell and his team were pleased with the ease of the process with which Hudl’s expert con­sul­tants exe­cut­ed the install.

In the ini­tial stages, Hudl were fan­tas­tic,” said Bessell. The cal­i­bra­tion of the cam­eras was fan­tas­tic and to go up in the scis­sor lift and tilt things down and the instal­la­tion of the servers, things like that, the spe­cial­ists did a per­fect job. I’ve always had a Hudl con­sul­tant eas­i­ly avail­able by phone.”
