Zone7, the AI-powered human performance platform, and recent Serie A winners, S.S.C. Napoli have today announced an extension of their strategic partnership for a further three years.
Napoli began using Zone7’s technology at the start of the 2022/2023 season, during which they won the Serie A league and had a highly successful Champions League campaign. Zone7’s platform analyzes comprehensive player information, including in-game and training data, as well as biometric, strength, sleep, and stress levels to create injury risk signals and practical intervention methods that aim to improve athlete performance while lowering injury incident rates.
During that season, Zone7 was used by Napoli’s Scientific Director, Prof. Raffaele Landolfi and Napoli’s performance staff to help keep the club’s top performers on the pitch. Versus the season before, Napoli saw a 59% increase in days available and a 52% reduction in days lost as a result of non-contact injuries.
“We are delighted to continue working with Zone7 and are proud to have been a first-mover for data science adoption in Italy,” said Prof. Landolfi. “Zone7 has been a helpful resource over the last twelve months, supporting our internal load monitoring systems to help optimize the level of care that the Fitness and Medical Team provides to each player on a daily basis,” he continued.
Tal Brown, Co-Founder and CEO of Zone7, added: “We are delighted and humbled to continue our work alongside SSC Napoli’s world class fitness, medical and data operators. The Club has been a true pioneer in Italy and world football, leading the way on and off the pitch.”
Napoli are one of Italy’s most treasured and successful clubs, both currently and historically. Last season saw the azzurri claim their third ever league title, the first since Maradona’s departure. Concurrently, it also saw them reach the quarter finals of the Champions League for the first time in their European history.
