Sports data and technology provider Stats Perform has agreed a new three-year deal to provide detailed performance data and analysis software to Football Australia.
The new agreement extends a long-running partnership between Football Australia and Stats Perform and will see Stats' Opta division collect data from all matches involving the men’s and women’s national teams down to the under 17 level. This will enable Football Australia to build a database of event data for monitoring Australian players and managing their development.
Football Australia will also have access to Stats Perform’s ProVision tool to monitor the weekly performance of all Australian players for their domestic clubs, as well as support their analysis of each international team’s upcoming opposition.
“We are very pleased to be continuing our long-standing relationship with Stats Perform,” said Football Australia’s head of performance analysis Doug Kors. “The database of Opta data, collected across all of our matches, is integral to the ongoing analysis of each of our international age groups, as we prepare for qualification campaigns and major competitions involving our men’s and women’s senior and youth teams.”
APAC stats perform senior vice president of sales Steven Cliffe added: “We very happy to have expanded our existing agreement to provide the coaches working with the Socceroos, Matildas and all the Australian youth teams with additional tracking data from matches, to further enhance their post-match analysis processes.
“This commitment further reinforces Stats Perform’s position as the leading provider of team performance services to national federations in the APAC region, and we are looking forward to supporting Football Australia as they manage their player pathways and prepare for international fixtures.”
