Top-quality sports data from STATSCORE for Fortuna 1 Liga
Fortuna 1 Liga, the second tier of the professional football system in Poland, is one of the professional leagues that selected STATSCORE as their official data provider.
Our collaboration with STATSCORE will bring benefits for the Fortuna 1 Liga, especially from the perspective of product development. The field of statistics is an integral element of sport – each fan would like to have access to the most up-to-date and reliable data. Thanks to the implementation of the cutting-edge technology provided by STATSCORE, every supporter will be able to feel the emotions here and now. That’s extremely important – said Marcin Janicki, the league’s chairman.
Starting from the beginning of 2020, STATSCORE has been responsible for collecting and delivering detailed match data and statistics, which are gathered directly on the stadiums by a team of experienced scouts.
The real-time data is then verified and displayed in customised match centres on the League’s website and the websites of its 18 clubs.
The match info delivered by STATSCORE’s scouts includes data on all incidents taking place on the field, such as shots, yellow/red cards, and substitutions.
A statistical overview of each fixture includes information about teams’ lineups, head-to-head comparisons, teams’ form (winning/losing streaks), and the league table.
Why does the league need official sports data?
Sports leagues more and more often realise the importance of having their official data collected.
- Here is why:
- The league is the owner of the data and has complete control over its use, which allows it to increase financial profits from the data (that can be employed by media, betting companies and sponsors).
- The league is able to provide its fans with top-quality statistical experience, which in turn allows it to attract more followers across digital channels, including social media, as well as win over a greater audience in general.
- Fortuna 1 Liga’s possession of official data increases the marketing value of the league.
- Ability to offer visually attractive official match data increases the value of the league’s TV rights.
How is the football data collected?
Sports data delivered by STATSCORE is characterised by the speed of the delivery along with high standards of reliability. But how is it collected and delivered in practice?
The data is collected by special teams of STATSCORE’s professional and experienced scouts, who are present at each and every stadium during all the league matches. The scouts record and immediately (within 2 seconds!) send all the information about events taking part on the field – this includes each action, shot, red and yellow card, every substitution, corner kick, penalty, etc.
The whole process is organised with the use of an extremely fast and secure technology in such a way to make sure that the quality and consistency of the data meets the highest standards.
All the data that is made available to the league is collected and compiled in a professional manner and verified by Scouts Quality Controllers to ensure that it’s always trustworthy, accurate, and as up-to-date as possible.
The data collected from the stadiums is immediately displayed through visually customisable widgets and live trackers, as well as used in API data feeds.
