Cllr Daniel Butler Mayor of the City and County of Limerick has welcomed the announcement today by Stats Perform that it has established a Global Rugby Centre of Excellence in Limerick City.

Stats Perform, which established itself in Limerick in 2017 is an analytics company involved in sports data collection and predictive analysis which is used across a variety of sports.

The company chose Limerick due to its lead location for the sports technology cluster in Ireland and the availability of talent within the local region.

This expansion to Stats Perform will result in Limerick playing a crucial role in the performance of some of the top rugby teams in the world.

Commenting on the announcement, Cllr Butler said, “The announcement today by Stats Perform that is establishing its Global Rugby Centre of Excellence in Limerick is another fantastic endorsement for Limerick as a successful location for inward investment.

The announcement reaffirms Limerick is a growth-location for companies. It also speaks volumes as to the city as a sport-tech cluster and, indeed, an emerging hub for companies in the AI and data space. And, of course, it recognises Limerick and the Mid-West’s region’s rich rugby heritage.”

The expansion of Stat Perform will see the company reach 300 employees by the end of the year, 60 of which are full-time and 280 of which are part-time. This will provide great employment opportunities for the people of Limerick and also be a significant milestone for the company.

“The fact that Stats Perform will have 300 employees by year-end is very welcome news for Limerick,” Cllr Butler said while commenting on the job opportunities Stat Preform’s expansion will create.

“It is a hugely positive vote of confidence in Limerick at an exciting time for the city and region in terms of inward investment. I congratulate Grainne Barry and the team in Stats Perform on reaching this very important milestone.”
