Watch the case study videos below to see the impact of LIGR's platform BEFORE and AFTER implementation by the largest state associations in Australia, Football (Football NSW) and Basketball Australia's (SEABL).
Note that in these particular case studies, LIGR’s automated graphics are powered by real time data from global sports technology companies Genius Sports (basketball) and Perform Group (football).
