Power Players: Sports Technology – Sports Business Journal

Power Players: Sports Technology – Sports Business Journal

Technology has pervaded sports, but real impact is driven not solely by the tools themselves but by the engineers and the coaches, the analysts and the visionaries, the investors and the entrepreneurs.

Rapid gains have been realized across athlete performance, business strategy, fan engagement, media and operations. SportTechie and Sports Business Journal recognize these 53 individuals across 46 companies, teams and leagues as the gatekeepers and stewards of technological innovation in sports.

Some are bold-faced names — the athletes performing at the highest levels who also use and invest in a slew of technologies — while others are the behind-the-scenes consultants and connectors. One performance practitioner was jokingly referred to as a white label coach for his unrecognized influence.

As the tech sector continues to grow in importance and necessity across the industry, keep an eye out for these Power Players, who will help lead the way.
