First International Postgraduate Diploma Programme in Sports Analytics, Technology and Innovation.

Ireland has a dynamic and growing SportsTech sector, with Foreign Direct Investment and local companies creating exciting innovations and revenue opportunities. 

Sportstech in Ireland is fueled by advances in technology that are creating new solutions for sports. From data mining, to advanced analytics, the Internet of Things and 5G to create business value from data. 

To support innovation in the SportsTech industry the Technology Ireland Digital Skillnet has co-created the first international Postgraduate Diploma Programme in Sports Analytics, Technology and Innovation, in partnership with TU Dublin and SportsTech Ireland. 

This groundbreaking programme is the first to embrace the intersection of Sport and Technology. It will equip you and your organisation with a thorough understanding of the sports technology and sports analytics landscape and how best to leverage it.

This is a programme for experienced professionals working in technology or commercial sportstech functions, or areas adjacent to the Sportstech domain.

It is tailored for executives, business leaders, data professionals, sports management professionals, decision-makers in sports-related enterprises, and stakeholders and will create a unique international community of practice across the SportsTech verticals which are primed for accelerated growth.

“When people hear the words sports data and analytics, they normally picture heart rate monitors and match day stats. The reality is that for every pitchside analyst, there are 2 or 3 times more looking at commercial data and fan behavior trends.”

Grainne Barry, Stats Perform, 2023.

“We’re blessed with a tech savvy talent pool and a tech hub that the top five tech companies call home. We’re ready to become the next powerhouse thanks to workers with a deep passion for sport coupled with a digital mindset.”
