Zebra extends NFL partnership for player tracking via RFID

Zebra said its MotionWorks Sports tracking system captures player speed, distance traveled, proximity as well as acceleration and deceleration.

Zebra said it has extended a partnership with the National Football League for its on-field player tracking technology.

The NFL partnership makes Zebra the official on-field player tracking provider through 2021. Zebra has deployed a system that attaches RFID tags to player equipment and the football to generate real-time location data for next-gen statistics.

Zebra said its MotionWorks Sports tracking system captures player speed, distance traveled, proximity as well as acceleration and deceleration. The NFL takes that data for player stats in-stadium and during broadcasts and also uses it for practice plans, play design and workload decisions.
