Liverpool FC has been recognised as a leader in sports innovation at the ISC International Sports Awards 2020 for the launch of its eAcademy platform.
Overcoming tough competition within the category, the Reds took home the accolade for innovation, with judges impressed by the new platform.
LFC eAcademy launched last month and has been designed to help young footballers master the skills necessary to play The Liverpool Way.
Developed by coaches at LFC, it is an unparalleled opportunity for young players to benefit from the leading academy expertise of one of the world’s most successful clubs.
Through world-class academy training methods, elite technical insights and inspiring content from the Reds’ first-team stars, LFC’s new eAcademy provides youngsters with the unique opportunity to develop their individual skills and techniques.
Celebrating exceptional success in the sports industry, the International Sports Awards recognise the achievements of individuals, groups and companies with honour and recognition on an annual basis.
Overall, seven categories saw seven outstanding winners recognised for demonstrating the best creativity, innovation and solutions in 2020.
The awards will be presented to the winners during ISC Virtual Week 2020, which takes place from December 7 to 11.
Dan White, vice president, LFC International Academies, said: “The eAcademy has been created to help young players learn the techniques and skills they need to become better footballers. To achieve this, we required a unique platform that would inspire, support and guide the user – whether they were starting out in the game or using the eAcademy to supplement other forms of training.
“We’re thrilled to have been named the winner of the innovation award at the ISC International Sports Awards 2020. It’s fantastic for the eAcademy to be recognised for its approach to skills development, the insight given to the user and also the innovative approach taken.”
