How to get interesting insights from football games?

Looking to analyze individual players? Our data analysis tells you how the individual players are performing in the game. 

Imagine that you want to get detailed player data from each game, and you want to share it with your network. Your first thoughts might be to start by going through huge search volumes. Data analysis gives you the details how the players are performing in the games.

Starting from EURO2020 tournament AISpotter has successfully collaborated with the leading Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat (HS). We are producing comprehensive data analysis from all the team Finland “Huuhkajat” football games.  Collaboration is a joint initiative together with MyCoazh

How the process is running?
The process is flowing the following way: Game event data is collected live during the games. Raw data contains all the actions the Finnish players are having with the ball. Also the key actions (e.g. long runs) without the ball are included in. All the information is stored to a database and automated, predefined queries are used to process the data and to put together all the needed parameters and datasets.

The newspaper is using an API to pull the classified data out from our database and then they are processing with data visualization and the content is ready for publishing shortly after the game.
