Stats Perform has announced the full launch of its performance integrity analysis service. The service provides analysis of events on the field of play to offer a new dimension to sporting investigations.
Stats Perform’s approach to performance analysis combines video analysis with the use of advanced models and metrics powered by its Opta database to evaluate event data to develop an understanding of match events and assess team and player performances.
The service has already been used in several major projects and investigations, including the Council of Europe’s Working Group on Performance Analysis in Sports Integrity, where Stats Perform’s methodologies and analytical reports were singled out as a very good tool in the detection of match manipulation.
“As with every element of sport integrity, success is built on a unified combination of measures across prevention, detection and investigation. Sport governing bodies have been calling for professional performance analysis to support the fight against match-fixing and we have answered that call. This is an additional tool and deterrent in the fight against sporting corruption, and a new front in maintaining the integrity of sport,” Jake Marsh, Global Head of Integrity at Stats Perform, said.
