European Space Agency (ESA) award winner

JOHAN is a unique sport tech company based in The Netherlands. It all started in 2014. Jelle Reichert & Robin van Kappel, both studied Aerospace Engineering at the Technical University of Delft, founded JOHAN after a prize-winning award from the European Space Agency. In collaboration with the ESA, we’ve developed highly accurate and advanced GPS trackers to guide football and field hockey teams to optimize player performance and prevent injuries.

After an intense testing period at a variety of Dutch professional teams, like De Graafschap, FC Volendam, PEC Zwolle, FC Eindhoven and the Dutch Hockey Federation (KNHB), JOHAN was born.
