The Maurice Revello Tournament and the Sud Ladies Cup are pleased to announce the signing of a partnership with StatsBomb, the new official statistics provider for both competitions.
StatsBomb is the world’s fastest growing football data company. Founded by former analyst Ted Knutson, StatsBomb was formed to empower data analysis teams by ensuring they have access to the best football data set ever created.
Having started as an analytics blog, StatsBomb initially progressed to consulting on data-driven recruitment and performance analysis for professional teams. In 2018, having become frustrated with limitations of the data available at the time, StatsBomb acquired ArqamFC, a data collection company based in Cairo, Egypt, and started to collect and supply its own data.
The introduction of StatsBomb data was a turning point for the analysis of football as it introduced previously unavailable metrics such as pressures, the height of the ball at the point of shot impact, goalkeeper positioning, freeze frames for shots and the foot with which each pass is played.
In 2021, StatsBomb improved this data even further with the launch of StatsBomb 360, adding a snapshot of all visible player locations to more than 3,400 on-the-ball events that are collected per match. Having gained rapid traction since its inception, StatsBomb is now servicing customers across the professional game, as well as betting and gaming operators, and is active in over 25 countries.
Through this new partnership, the Maurice Revello Tournament and the Sud Ladies Cup will have state-of-the-art statistical reports on the various matches played in their competitions. This data will offer our community new ways to follow the tournaments through innovative and varied content based on the study of match data.
