SciSports Data Analysis

Player-club report excerpt: Davy Klaassen

19/05/17 | SciSports

Within SciSports we serve and support clubs, agents and individual players in selecting their best options. These options will be presented to them in a high level or detailed report based on data. The content of these reports is based on the request and requirements of the club, agent or player. Their request will be analysed by our data scouts and put through our data system. Some of the aspects that our system analyses are team statistics, the SciSkill Index, playing style analysis, etc.

Last week, one of our reports was featured in an article in prestigious Dutch football magazine Voetbal International. Their request was to provide them with an example on how we would support Ajax captain Davy Klaassen on his decision for the next step/level.

Based on system analysis, we highlighted two interesting options for Klaassen, SSC Napoli and Everton FC. These options were mainly based on the potential of Klaassen, the team system of the two teams and the possible comparison with other players in that teams who might leave the club. As an example we have attached the team analysis of Everton FC.

As mentioned, this is just a small part of the business of SciSports and our Data Scouting department.
