Road to the top for Manchester United with TeamViewer Tensor

One of the world’s most famous football teams, Manchester United, relies on enterprise-grade remote connectivity from TeamViewer for ensuring access to critical coaching materials at away matches.

As Paul Brand, head of first-team analysis at Manchester United, says: “Access to our full suite of training materials when we’re travelling is now just easy and gives us more time to focus on the match.”

Accessing the data via a modern enterprise connectivity solution — in this case, TeamViewer Tensor — can offer advantages both in terms of match prep ahead of play and self-analysis.

The team can access files quickly and securely from servers in Manchester wherever they are worldwide.

According to TeamViewer, making sure these key resources are available used to take the team a lot of preparation time to save, upload and store files in different locations.

There was no uniform approach for the team and files were not always easily accessible remotely, due to unreliable or complicated third-party file transfer offerings.

“Instead of notepads and eyewitness accounts, algorithms and video technology now count when it comes to collecting and analysing match data,” the software vendor explains.

“The Manchester United analyst and coaching team leverages this raw data from all matches — for example, for opponent analysis and performance analysis. Players’ ball contacts, running distances, duels and much more can be video recorded.”

According to TeamViewer, Tensor is also helping them remotely manage and change the videowall displays in their gym. Coaches can highlight specific video content in-session to improve training.

TeamViewer also helps the team manage its Old Trafford grounds, enhancing their ability to monitor and update requirements even when staff are working from a different location — for example by remotely activating the sprinklers.

Tony Sinclair, head groundsman at Manchester United, says: “The value of the TeamViewer technology is crucial, it really is. As a live example, we can be out working on the far pitches at Carrington and notice that the Old Trafford pitch requires further water and attention.”

The Manchester United team is always looking into new application scenarios for TeamViewer, the vendor says.
