This fall, Veo Technologies entered into partnerships with a remarkable five football associations in the UK. The five FA’s are Cornwall, ISFA, Norfolk, Middlesex and Surrey, who’ve all received Veo’s football cameras in a unique sponsorship package created to support grassroots football in the counties – and to spark awareness about high-quality and affordable video analysis now being available for lower league teams. The package includes a Veo camera kit, complete with tripod and subscription, as well as funding to invest back into their respective grassroots football programs.
Specifically, the Veo cameras will be filming the five FA’s representative teams, but they will also be circulating “on the road” throughout the year to give local county players the chance to watch themselves play and local county coaches the chance to analyse and improve.
Norfolk FA Chief Executive, Gavin Lemmon says: “We’re delighted to welcome Veo on board as one of our official partners and I’m extremely excited that we are able to make this fantastic device available to grassroots clubs.”
Mr. Jono Santry, Head of Player Development and U18 Coach at ISFA says: “Video is fast becoming a necessity in school football and Veo provides the perfect solution for all Independent Schools to develop, nurture and showcase their footballing prowess on and off the field”.
The five FA’s were selected due to their positions amongst the UK’s most forward thinking football associations – all with a remarkably high level of both participation and engagement – and Veo has great confidence that the new partnerships will have a great impact for aspiring young players.
CEO of Veo, Henrik Teisbæk, says: “We’re happy to see so many progressive clubs and associations in the UK wanting to become part of the journey towards leveling the football playing field, and making video available to everyone.”
Ultimately, the goal for the partnerships is for more local players to hone their skills with the most high-tech hardware and software available on the market, and help them punch above their weight. Fingers crossed.
