Kognia Sports Intelligence

We are a Barcelona-based sportstech company funded by football industry leaders including superstars Xavi Hernández and Iker Casillas. Since opening our office in early 2019 with the founders plus 2 engineers, we have grown to 20+.

Our technology begins with video images from the game, detects player movements and actions, and delivers insights to coaches and players in the form of video clips with overlay illustrating tactical concepts. In September 2020 we went into production with a closed beta and are now selling an MVP already leading the market in automated tactical analysis. We expect strong growth as we gain traction in the next months.

Our goal is to allow technical staff at football clubs and FAs, as well as other decision makers at all levels of the game to have quicker and more insightful feedback from the game and make more informed decisions.
