Bobic: Innovate and work fast”

At the beginning of 2017, Eintracht, with its co-innovation partner SAP and its solution SAP Sports One, was able to break new ground in work organization in sports and developed process and organizational optimizations, innovations and sustainability for the association in many areas. Since then, all nine football teams of the AG and e.V. as well as the entire organization and sports management (in total almost 500 sports employees at Eintracht Frankfurt) are connected with each other.

With the help of our co-innovation partner SAP, we have digitized the entire sports area and created a state-of-the-art work environment in terms of handling, technology and sustainability with a digital platform. KINEXON ONE optimizes and complements this process ideally,”

Sebastian Zelichowski, Head of Analysis & Sports Technology at Eintracht Frankfurt

Fredi Bobic, Sports Director of Eintracht Frankfurt Fußball AG, adds: In Germany, we still have a lot of work to do in the area of​digitization. In order to compete with the economically stronger clubs, we have to work smart, innovative and fast. Partners like SAP and KINEXON help us with that task.“
