The quality of solutions delivered by STATSCORE, as the official sports data partner, to professional leagues has been appreciated across numerous sports and competitions, and futsal is surely one of them. Thanks to the outstanding live data and stats, Futsal Ekstraklasa, the top flight of the sport in Poland, has been able to attract new fans and increase the value of its brand. Let’s find out more!
Official futsal data straight from the venues
Futsal Ekstraklasa, the highest tier of futsal pyramid in Poland, has been using STATSCORE’s official sports data since the start of the 2019/2020 season.
Right from the beginning of this collaboration, the official data has been helping the league to achieve some of its most crucial goals.
Having the official data delivered by STATSCORE marks another step in the process of the league professionalization and in building its brand in the market. You could compare it to installing air conditioning or power steering in your car. The price of the car increases immediately – said Maciej Karczyński, chairman of Futsal Ekstraklasa, upon the signing of the league’s deal with STATSCORE.
How do we collect and deliver the data?
The top-quality live data is collected directly from the venues by a team of highly-trained scouts. They are present at each and every game in the league to observe, record, and immediately deliver data and stats on every important incident happening on the court.
This allows STATSCORE to keep the league’s fans and followers updated about each attack, shot, foul, yellow or red card, and any other significant incident on the court.
The verified data is then presented in a visually attractive and engaging form through a customised LeagueCenter mini-site accessible at the Futsal Ekstraklasa’s official website.
Apart from the live data delivered directly from the courts, the LeagueCenter also includes advanced tools for team comparisons, comprehensive players’ statistics, and league standings.
