“As both a governing body and an international set up, the EPU decided it is vital to use a platform at the very forefront of performance analysis.

“We foresee Nacsport having a huge impact with the performance set-up, coinciding perfectly with our aim of giving coaches and players the most vital and important information and going forward this partnership will only improve and develop.”
