When most club directors think of sports technology, they are quick to think of wearables that boost performance or smart equipment that improves form and technique.

However, technology platforms are just as important for logistics and organization, especially for club directors. A platform is simply a group of technologies that are used as a base upon which other applications, processes, or tools are developed.

Below are three must-have technology platform recommendations from the LeagueApps FC team.
