The strategic partnership marks a significant milestone in advancing athlete performance within Brazilian football.

Two Brazilian football players, one in a yellow jersey and the other in a blue jersey, are actively engaged in a match. The player in yellow is skillfully maneuvering the ball, while the player in blue closely defends, showcasing intense competition and athleticism on the field.
Catapult and the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) have announced a landmark partnership to enhance athlete performance across all levels of Brazilian football. Utilizing Catapult’s cutting-edge monitoring technology, this collaboration aims to provide valuable data-driven insights, improve injury risk mitigation, and optimize player performance, including for key players in the women’s league.
