VOGO and the Italian association AIAPC are partners!

What is the AnalistiAIAPC association?

AssoAnalistiAIAPC is the Italian Association of Soccer Performance Analysts, founded in 2016 to represent the italian Match and Performance Analysts of Soccer Industry in relationships with clubs and federations and to develop the Performance Analysis discipline in our Country with events, courses and seminars.

We created the largest network in Italy with professionals, clubs and universities for taking this sport applied science to the next level. Since its foundation, AIAPC certified over 1500 analysts, almost all currently operating in Italian football clubs.

In 2019, thanks to AIAPC's union representation, the Antitrust Authority defined the Soccer Match Analyst not as a Coach (as hitherto supported by the FIGC, the Italian Soccer Federation) but as an "information and knowledge" professional consultant, a scientific researcher or scientist, part of the coaching staff of a club.

The FIGC thus amended its own regulations and this was the first major legal victory by the association in favor of the professional and scientific status of match analysts in Italy.

Why did you choose to represent VOKKERO GUARDIAN STAFF communication solutions?

Mario SAVO, President of the association:

In our job, real time communication is essential. During the game, from our working location (in the terraces or in the press area from where we observe the game in a privileged way) we need to continuously communicate with the rest of the coaching staff on the bench, to give them our feedback from the height, where we can see better and evaluate any single tactical situation.

The VOKKERO GUARDIAN STAFF is a great tool to communicate in an efficient and professional way. This could be the difference between victory and defeat!

 

Why would you recommend VOKKERO to your colleagues, analysts, coaches, medical teams...?

Mario SAVO, President of the association:

It is a great improvement in the communication processes, it is a time-saver and a product that can help you make the right decisions in time to change the fate of the game. It is your choice, taking a decision now has benefits that taking the same decision 10 minutes later has not. You can have the best analysts but if you cannot communicate with them in real time and in a clear way, you would find the weaknesses in your strategy too late to provide an efficient response to it, it would be totally useless.
