SciSports and PFSA enter into a collaboration
Amersfoort, 23 March 2022 – SciSports are pleased to announce a partnership with The Professional Football Scouts Association (PFSA) which will bring both parties closer together in sharing knowledge around data analytics in football.
Since its formation in 2013, SciSports has become an industry-leader within the football data and analytics space. The company has developed a wealth of knowledge and expertise in-house and now provides data-driven insights to the top clubs, leagues and football organisations across the globe.
Such knowledge and experience will be shared alongside the PFSA, who are the world’s leading provider of accredited scouting courses. The organisation plays a key role in helping develop and educate new and experienced scouts within the football industry.
Within the collaboration, both parties will work together on topics such as adopting SciSports data services within the current PFSA educational programs as well as exploring other opportunities to share knowledge at the crossover of professional football and data science.
As a part of the new relationship, SciSports will introduce their services to members of PFSA. Existing Associate and Certified members of the PFSA will also benefit from getting practical experience on SciSports’ player recruitment product as well as special partnership discounts.
Adam Hobson, Director at The Professional Football Scouts Association: “The PFSA has always ensured that we align ourselves with leading software and applications within the market to derive maximum benefit to our members – SciSports is no exception to this rule. With the PFSA’s extensive portfolio of scouting and analysis education and thousands of members globally, the new partnership will see both SciSports and PFSA enter into a mutually beneficial agreement that will see high levels of collaboration across the association.”
