The Guinness Six Nations has selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) to become official technology provider. AWS will deliver more in-depth insight into the championship and enhance the match experience for rugby fans around the world through analytics, machine learning, and deep learning services.

As well as providing the technology behind the live broadcast of on-screen match data and statistics, AWS will also power other aspects of the Six Nations championship across the official website.

AWS plan on bringing a number of technological firsts to the sport, including using predictive analytics for the first time. For the 2019 Six Nations championship, seven new kinds of statistics will be launched that are significantly more dynamic than those featured in previous broadcasts. New statistics will look at scrum analysis, play patterns, try origins, team trends, ruck analysis, tackle analysis, and field position analysis.

“I am excited to welcome AWS to the Six Nations family, “ said Ben Morel, CEO, Six Nations Rugby. “With AWS now powering the championship, we have the opportunity to place unparalleled innovation at the core of our rugby experience, for fans around the world. This is a major boost for our championship and a clear signal of our ambition to embrace innovation in all areas that will benefit our fans.”

“We are delighted to be working alongside one of the world’s most storied, most iconic, and most respected sporting events,” said Andy Isherwood, vice president and MD EMEA, Amazon Web Services, Inc.
