Sportlomo CEO, Seamus Kyne and Marketing Director Vivienne Lee were delighted to be invited as guests to the recent Munster V. Connacht Rugby Game in Thomond Park in Limerick. This is becoming an annual event and much appreciated by the SportLoMo team.
Last year’s invite was taken up by John Lee, Sportlomo Operations Manager. Munster and Connacht Rugby are long-term users of the Sportlomo system.
Munster beat Connacht 27-14 on the day. The victory, coupled with with Glasgow’s win over Edinburgh, saw Munster finish second in Conference A.
Tadhg Beirne was awarded Man of the Match and Craig Casey, named Academy Player of the Year earlier this week, came off the bench to make his senior debut in the clash.
Seamus and Vivienne had dinner in the Munster President’s Corporate box, with the Presidents of Munster and Connacht, and officials from both provinces.

IRELAND HAS BECOME A POWER IN THE SPORT TECH FIELD

A packed house of over 200 referees were in Ravenhill Park in August 2017 to see the presentation of the Sportlomo Referee Management system.
Ulster Rugby joins Leinster, Munster and Connacht Rugby in using Sportlomo to manage their Match Officials. With Leinster Rugby the first province to commence using the system for all its competition management in 2007. All domestic rugby in Ireland is managed on the Sportlomo platform.
The Ulster branch now manage their referees electronically through the Sportlomo system, they can check availability or notify referees by text message and email of their selection for upcoming games.
The new system has vastly increased the speed at accessing team sheets (rosters), referee data and player queries. Each referee has been allocated their own Sportlomo log-in where a referee can accept or reject fixtures, change their account details or mark their availability throughout the year for games. See Complete Referee system on a simple Infographic.
The system keeps a log of each match official’s games throughout the season. After each game the referee is required to submit their match report and discipline report to the system. This data automatically feeds through to the Ulster branch.
A further useful feature is the electronic-team sheet (team roster) module. All the clubs in Ireland are required by the IRFU (governing body) to update their player selections online, this gives referees access to team sheets/players online and this integrates with their discipline reports. The data from each team and player is populated into the Referee system, so this saves the Referees and Match Officials having to retype or duplicate this work.

Innovation, Big Data and Digital are the current ‘sweet spot’ for enterprise. But, these three focal points are also the ‘sweet spot’ for global sport.
All three are directly linked to each other and in the context of sport, whether elite, community or somewhere in between, a good combination of these three focal points is critical to both strategy design and execution.
The combination of Big Data, Digital and Innovation strategy and execution gets us closer to customers, closer to the community and closer to winning the big games and gold medals we desire.
Governing organisations around the world are typically tasked with increasing participation and increasing performance (aka winning!).
We are seeing some fantastic examples of ‘the sweet spot’ for sport with the work IBM’s been doing with tennis, the wearable devices like Electrozyme and Catapult we’re seeing in both the consumer and elite sector, and many companies concentrating on ‘connecting with fans’.
An example of the ‘sweet spot’ for sport: IBM’s Australian Open Slamtracker.
These and numerous other examples are great to see as they strengthen the sporting ecosystem at large.
The opportunity to diversify revenue models, deliver greater value to customers or even predict the performance and injury outcomes of our top sports athletes presents a massive opportunity for sports technology innovative companies.
And there is always going to be a role for the delivery of unique value in sport, or any other industry for that matter.
So the role of innovation in sport, is really about strengthening and growing the entire ecosystem, as well as continually increasing the value that participants (athletes, teams, organisations, sponsors, fans, media etc.) within the global sporting ecosystem receive.
For this to occur, within new or existing organisations, the combination of solid strategy, with the skills and resources to execute on Big Data, Digital and ultimately the delivery of Innovation are needed.
The Sportlomo team follow all the latest innovations in performance technology, sports IT, sports players measurement, nutrition and anything that gives us an edge on the field, pitch, court, grounds, pool and track.
SportLoMo thinks of itself as an innovative technology company contributing to the participation of grassroots sports.
The team enjoy working at the cutting edge of sports software and helping little leagues, colleges, schools and teams maximise their impact in their community.
