Slide1_SBWCANBERRA, Australia, July 3, 2014—Globally Positioning Sport (GPSports), the pioneer in GPS Sports technology, has been acquired by Catapult Sports as of July 1, 2014. 


Founded in 2000, GPSports was the first company to develop and sell sports GPS technology and has continued to lead the way with cutting edge sports science.  In the last six months teams training with GPSports SPI HPU units and SPI IQ software have captured nine major championships.  The success of GPSports clients speaks for itself.

An enhanced GPSports will continue running out of its Canberra offices, separate from Catapult’s new Melbourne-based Australian headquarters.

“Day one after the acquisition, we expect the only thing GPSports users will notice is an increased focus on customer service as we invest in this side of the operation,” said Catapult CEO Shaun Holthouse.

“We know a lot of GPSports clients are very loyal to the brand and technology. The last thing we want to do is disrupt a good thing. Over the longer term we will be looking for synergies that bring added value to our combined customer base”.

Holthouse is excited about his company’s growth but assures Catapult and GPSports will continue running as separate companies.

“We are excited about adding GPSports to the Catapult group,” Holthouse said.

“Like Catapult, GPSports has differentiated itself from competitors by developing evidence-based systems with leading sports practitioners which improve athlete performance and teams.”
