PALO ALTO, Calif., May 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Zone7, the AI-driven human performance platform is expanding its service to Liverpool Football Club (“Liverpool FC”), a leading professional football club in the English Premier League, for a further two years and will cover the men’s, women’s and Under 23 teams.
Liverpool FC has been using Zone7’s technology since the start of the 2021/2022 season. The platform analyzes comprehensive player information, including in-game and training data, as well as biometric, strength, sleep, and stress levels to create injury risk signals and practical intervention methods that aim to improve athlete performance while lowering injury incident rates.
“Zone7 has been a helpful resource over the last nine months, supporting our internal load monitoring systems to help optimise the level of care that the Fitness and Medical Team provides to each player on a daily basis,” said Conall Murtagh, First-Team Fitness Coach for Liverpool FC.
“The platform’s innovative features, underpinned by artificial intelligence, have the ability to harness all forms of athlete performance data. It is a very exciting development for the future load management of elite football players. We look forward to the service expanding to cover our women’s and under 23 teams.”

In recent years, the men’s first team has won the EFL’s Carabao Cup (2022), its first Premier League title (2020), the FIFA Club World Cup (2019), as well as its sixth European Cup (2019).
