Since 2013, the young talents at the FC Basel 1893 soccer club have lived and trained on the site provided by the Youth Campus Foundation. Modesty is the keynote here. That's understandable, because FC Basel operates on a far less ambitious scale than clubs such as Real Madrid, Bayern Munich or FC Barcelona, which can attract talented players from all over Europe. However, FC Basel 1893 pursues a different strategy. The club wants to maintain its local roots − but at the same time, it aims to focus on reducing the number of dropouts so as to move more players up into the professional league. And the tools that FC Basel 1893 uses to achieve those goals include measuring systems from Kistler.
As you stroll across the campus (already three years old), your eye is immediately drawn to a long concrete building. As well as offices and changing rooms, it houses modern training areas where Kistler force plates have been in use since the end of 2015. The measurement results generated by this technology provide training supervisors with in-depth knowledge about the physical condition of their players.
