Newry firm STATSports have taken on board Premier League players Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Raheem Sterling as significant investors as well as global ambassadors for the burgeoning tech firm.
The firm has shaken hands with some of the world's most successful sporting teams - from Brazil to US soccer teams.
Chief global strategist Jarlath Quinn said the investments by Raheem Sterling and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were a landmark moment.
"The company has been profitable year on year without taking any investment since inception in 2009," he said.
"What is even more remarkable is for a technology company to achieve global market leader status while being bootstrapped. So, without doubt this is a landmark moment for STATSports.
"The fact that our first set of investors includes top players such as Alex and Raheem, who know better than anyone the importance of our technology, is a ringing endorsement of our plans to cement our position in the B2B market whilst growing the huge B2C opportunity."
