Irish FA Ushers in a New Era of Video Analysis with Hudl

For the Irish FA, a team with players and coaches across the globe, adding Hudl to their arsenal was a no-brainer.  

We’ve partnered with Avenir Sports and the Irish FA to bring video analysis to the staff and players of the Senior Irish Men’s National Team.

By integrating the full suite of tools that Hudl has to offer, including Sportscode, the Irish first team is connected like never before. For a team that is spread across the globe, the ability to share analysis and video with players and coaches online is vital to preparation for upcoming matches

I found it really easy and effortless to do research in the evenings in preparation for meeting up with the squad.” Steve Guppy

For Robbie Keane, Ireland’s all-time leading scorer, the ability to view and prepare while remote in the United States has been critical. “I use Hudl and Sportscode to analyse myself, and certainly to analyse players that I will be playing against,” said Keane.

The team can analyse matches in full, from set-piece breakdown to individual player breakdown. “Video analysis is very important to the FAI, both for helping with scouting, and of course hopefully using it as a coaching tool to show individuals or groups of players moments within the game,” said Steve Guppy, coach for the senior team. “One of the main benefits for using Hudl and Sportscode for me personally, recently living in Atlanta, I found it really easy and effortless to do research in the evenings in preparation for meeting up with the squad.”

“I find it an invaluable part of coaching now in the modern game,” said Seamus McDonagh, Ireland’s senior goalkeeping coach. “Especially after training, I can pick the app up and go in and see what the goalkeepers have been doing, and evaluate their performance. I couldn’t believe it when they gave me the app, how good it is. You can draw on it, you can run it back. It’s unbelievable.”

“Hudl is a great coaching tool for any coach, anywhere.”
