Football fans around the world have a unique opportunity this year as both the Americas Cup and European Championship are taking place at the same time. The 45th edition of the Americas Cup is the Centennial one, and the first time it takes place in the U.S.

With 16 teams playing 24 matches, the championship will draw in more than 533 million in a TV audience. The 15th edition of the Euro Cup is taking place across 10 cities in France with 24 teams playing over 50 matches — the most ever. A TV audience of 377 million is expected, also breaking broadcast records.

These events draw in some of the most passionate fans across the globe — an estimated 265 million people around the world play soccer — to watch their favorite teams in action, and SAP is right in the center of the action with two new prototype solutions helping the German National Football Team (DFB) train and prepare for opponents and upcoming matches like never before.
