Hampshire FA has teamed up with global sports tech company, Veo Technologies to record grassroots football matches and events across Hampshire
Hampshire FA has teamed up with global sports tech company, Veo Technologies to record grassroots football matches and events across Hampshire FA’s hub sites including Stoneham Lane Football Complex, Front Lawn Community Hub and Winklebury Football Complex.
Veo’s AI technology records 2 dimensions by 2 lenses in a single camera, allowing footage to merge together undisrupted, creating a single recording and all the while not having a videographer or camera operator.
A revolutionary product, Veo’s AI were able to use deeping learning and neural networks to teach the camera to follow the action of a football pitch automatically.
The camera can be used to record coaching sessions or training by analysing footage to support the club coaches and players detailing improvement or positive reinforcement. Clubs can also use it to solicit sponsorship opportunities and content sharing by using snippets to support social media promotions or simply sharing your moment of glory with friends and family!
Due to Hampshire FA’s vast expansion over recent years with the introduction of new hub sites, including Stoneham Lane Football Complex and Front Lawn Community Hub, the cameras will certainly be put to good use. Through cup finals, coaching sessions or grassroots events, we aim to capture all there is to offer in our beautiful game, using the footage to support a variety of content across our website and social media channels. Our round-up of footage taken in the season is bound together and presented at our pinnacle event in the county, the Grassroots Football Awards ceremony sponsored by BSA Regal – as such the continued use of the cameras will provide us with extensive benefits to share with our members across the whole of the season.
Customers also have access to a whole host of tools on Veo’s own analysis platform. You are able to click through your automatically generated goal highlights, create your own player profiles, direct your own highlights in interactive mode, tag custom highlights and even channel your inner Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville with the “draw on screen” feature.
Discussing the partnership with Veo, Hampshire FA’s CEO Neil Cassar says:
'Whilst we have expanded considerably in the county presenting many opportunities for our members and staff alike to play, coach, referee, volunteer and work across state-of-the-art facilities, we require this to be complimented by advanced technology to further support the game and our ambitions. The cameras will add wide-ranging benefits for all across the departments and will serve as a permanent reminder of past seasons, footage which we can look back on and enjoy, utilise effectively for educational purposes and support a continued stream of content across our channels.'
'Veo are delighted to support grassroots football in Hampshire and hope to see teams all over the county start to film their games. Video in football should not simply be only for the 1% of cash rich footballing giants but also for the 99% of people young and old who will no longer have to replay the goal of their life in just their mind'
Due to the partnership with Veo, there has been a further added benefit for our members!
