“Rugby is a team sport in which you can’t accomplish anything without the rest of your teammates.” - Serge Kampf, Founder of Capgemini
Capgemini has contributed to the world of rugby for over 30 years, supporting grass-roots teams, national clubs, and on the international stage as a sponsor of the 2007 Rugby World Cup. Our role as Global Innovation Partner of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series is a natural step in the group history.
We love rugby and are thrilled at this opportunity to do more, for the game and for the fans.
Capgemini and Rugby share the same values and with its diverse global fanbase, rugby is fully aligned with Capgemini’s conviction that it is through true diversity of thought and approach that the most innovative solutions are developed, and value is created.
Here’s why we love Rugby Sevens!
Our Innovation journey is just beginning
Capgemini aims to empower fans and offers a suite of digital tools for sevens watchers – including the Match Predictor game, a Live Match Tracker, and a virtual reality (VR) experience. Capgemini has launched its pioneering Momentum Tracker tool, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to measure the performances of men’s and women’s teams. The Momentum Tracker provides unique data-driven insights showing which countries are on the up – and down – in terms of performance across each tournament, as well as the season as a whole
Because we are always innovating, we are continuously working with World Rugby to deliver game changing innovations.
