STATS Strengthens International Football Coverage for Clubs and Media
LONDON – August 3, 2016 – STATS LLC, the world’s leading sports technology company, has bolstered its football coverage in collaboration with Prozone Sports, which was acquired by STATS in May 2015. STATS now provides the most in-match data points live, while maintaining the highest level of accuracy, to clubs and media with its new Tier 6+ data.
STATS Tier 6+ data is supported by the newly appointed EMEA Research & Editorial team providing clubs and media with the most in depth and accurate football match coverage. Using STATS proficiency in live data collection and Prozone’s football subject matter expertise, Tier 6+ data allows team analysts to interact with live data through a variety of viewing platforms either through the STATS API or simple XML feeds.
Tier 6+ includes more than 2,700 separate events per game provided to teams live with a timestamp, position (x,y), and player/team involved for 16 leagues and competitions. Tier 6+ offers 30% more data points per match compared to the leading competitor.
Utilizing Tier 6+ data, STATS EMEA Research & Editorial Team provides media with insightful game notes before and after matches, custom built graphics for on-air or digital distribution, and support for live research questions.
