Unlock The Potential Of Your Sports Organisation Through Data And Analytics

Thu 13th Oct 2016 | Football Industry Events

A data-driven era of sports offers participating organisations, clubs and federations a valuable opportunity to gain a competitive edge over their rivals, however while they understand this opportunity, they often fail to grasp it or identify its true value.

Sports has for a long time been accompanied by a wealth of statistics – what’s different today is the amount of data and the multitude of ways that we have to analyse and interpret that data – and put it to work. Data analytics has affected both players' performance and viewers' experience in more ways than we thought possible and in the process, has taken sporting performance to new levels.

You are invited to attend 3rd annual Sportdata & Performance Forum 2016, taking place in Dublin next month to gather all the information you need to succeed in an ever increasingly competitive and challenging elite sports environment.

DATE: 22-23 NOVEMBER 2016

LOCATION: Fitzgerald Debating Chamber, University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland



Learn, network & be inspired!
