The FA's Player Performance System (PPS) is a key component of Helix, the FA's application and development suite that has been hosted on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for the past five years.

The FA platform is built on various GCP tools that are linked together by a complex micro service system that is used to update the data being collected, analysed, and stored.
