Southampton Football Club is an English Premier League football club based in Southampton, Hampshire, England. The Club was established in 1885, and has been nicknamed “The Saints” due to its history as a church football team, being founded as St. Mary’s Church of England Young Men’s Association. The Saints famously won the prestigious English FA Cup in 1976, beating Manchester United 1-0 in one of the greatest ever FA Cup upsets in history as they were a second division team at that time. The Saints have continued to thrive in the Premier League to this day, having completed over 20 seasons in the Premier League and accumulating close to 1,000 points.
“We are delighted to be partnering with AI Sport as they launch their innovative new platform, bringing their cutting-edge use of AI Technology and data analytics to sports fans worldwide.”
