The demand for physical insights

Data-driven scouting has come a long way in recent years with advanced models and algorithms providing more insights to clubs. In such a competitive field, scouts and club staff are always looking to gain an edge in player recruitment. That’s why SciSports continues to make industry-leading progression with new insights. Physical metrics such as Speed and Stamina are now available for 130+ leagues worldwide.

Answering some of the most important questions within the scouting process:

  • Is this player fast compared to other reference players?
  • Is this player amongst the top performers in distance covered per game?
  • Is this player able to fill position X in team Y based on his physics?
