PTG is proud to announce the official technology sponsorship for England Rugby League (ERL) 2021. This partnership is set to help the national team harness the power of technology to gain a competitive advantage for the 2021 World Cup. The England 2021 World Cup will see the men’s, women’s and wheelchair competitions come together and be staged in a single celebratory event for the first time ever in a breakthrough moment. 2021 will be one inclusive game together; leading up to an exciting Finals Weekend to crown the champions of each.

The joint venture will also see the tech firm and ERL enter into a long-term knowledge sharing agreement. PTG will offer ongoing IT solutions, while ERL’s head coach, Shaun Wane, will deliver regular talks to PTG’s staff and customers about how to create and be part of a successful team.

PTG’s investment in the national team will allow the ERL to purchase brand-new laptops and gain access to cloud-based, performance analytics software, Hudl – allowing them to implement real-time GPS positioning on the pitch, replay and annotate training footage, and track all aspects of the players’ nutrition.

PTG win by playing as a team. Our #OneTeam culture means we are committed to helping our team to function at its very best performance.

To be the best you need a great team, a team that dreams big. Our #OneTeam culture is a dedication to inspiring, motivating, coaching and supporting each other, giving each other the mindset and will to win.

The opportunity to get behind our national squad and support them through the use of technology is a very proud moment for our organisation. Here at PTG, the ethos around the way we run our business is very much like that found in a team sport. We all have an important role to play in helping reach the common goal, and our collaborative spirit helps us get there. That’s why the relationship is such a natural fit. We’re thrilled to be able to facilitate ERL accessing the analytical tools that allow them to assess, reflect on and learn from their on-pitch performance, ahead of the 2021 World Cup next October, when they’ll attempt to win the tournament on home soil.

Through measuring performance, achieving a strong support network and of course a hard working team, anything can be achieved.

ERL is determined to fight to win the World Cup for England in the 2021 finals and PTG is proud to support ERL in their campaign. Through the use of technology to analyse marginal gains, PTG will support the ERL to be the very best they can be.

PTG and ERL share the same one team mentality; teamwork is at the core of the winning strategy; determination and hard work are reflected in the partnership.

PTG is enabling us to access a sophisticated performance analysis programme that will supercharge our World Cup training regime – a vital part of our high-intensity strategy. It’s a very exciting partnership for myself, the ERL and the game as a whole, and I know we’re all going to see benefits from this next year. In sport, tech can be the difference between winning and losing, so watch this space.
