The basic rules of football have stayed pretty much the same over the years. But there have been big changes in how teams approach the game and the tech they use.
At the grassroots level, the game is becoming more competitive and technologically advanced. To gain a competitive edge over other teams, it’s often necessary to follow the lead of professional organisations.
Traditionally, tactical software was once only used by elite clubs and academies. Now, it is available to clubs of all levels and abilities. Technological advances have enabled the software to be used pitchside via smartphones and tablets.
Apps are not only easily accessible but they help bridge gaps between teams. But with so many football coaching apps and software on the market, it can be hard to know which are the right ones for you and your club.
Don’t worry – we’ve done the hard work for you and summarised the features and pricing of the six best football coaching and tactics apps on the market.
