Data-driven sports recruitment specialist Scisports is looking to up its game. The company, located in Amersfoort and Enschede, just announced it has acquired Zeist-based Inmotio Object Tracking, which uses Local Position Measurement (LPM) software (link in Dutch) to track the movements and workloads of athletes during matches. By joining forces, they look to strengthen their portfolio, enrich the football industry with advanced player and team insights (link in Dutch) and establish a sports data intelligence powerhouse.

In addition to this acquisition, Scisports also announced that Vincent van Renesse van Duivenbode will succeed Louis Kinsbergen as CEO (link in Dutch), with Daan le Duc joining as the company’s new CTO. “I’m an avid sports fan and truly believe in the vision to bring our platforms together. We transformed the Inmotio business from an LPM wearable tracking provider with a local software service into a fully cloud-based tracking provider agnostic solution,” comments Van Renesse van Duivenbode. “Our research collaboration with the KNVB on close encounters in the COVID-19 period, shows that we are flexible and know how to help our trusted partners in the everchanging football industry.”
