Nine’s WWoS launching GPS player tracking at State Of Origin

The Telstra Tracker will deliver live information to viewers

Nine’s Wide World of Sports, in conjunction with the NRL, has announced the addition of a state-of the-art GPS player tracking system, the Telstra Tracker, to deliver in-match technology to viewers in State of Origin I on Wednesday May 31.

Live information including speed, distance covered and heat maps of where players have been on the field will all be incorporated into this Australian-first technology – and a first for rugby league broadcasting.

The Telstra Tracker is made possible through a collaboration between Nine, the NRL, NSWRL, the QRL along with a global leader in GPS player tracking Catapult. Together they will unveil a system that NRL clubs and coaches have been using to measure players’ key performance indicators.
