Interview: Use of data in football

less than 1 minute read

I have in the last 10 years or so worked with data trying to study and explore how to implement data efficiently in the World of football.

It’s first of all not an easy task to find and use data efficiently, but also football as an industry are quite conservative and based on experiences rather than science.

Most coaches and leaders in football are former players, who know the game from the inside, but also can lack a more scientific and evidential approach to their work.

But data has slowly moved inside the pro clubs, and it’s moving in the right direction, which I try to explain in this article with data expert international company KMD (in Danish):

Hej Mads, Vi kender ikke hinanden, men jeg kunne godt tænke mig evt at tale med dig vedr fodbold, data analyer og specielt i denne forbindelse hvad jeg kalder ‘cognitive issues’, som vi kan, eller i hvert fald er meget tæt på at kunne, analysere irt den funktionelle præstation. Jeg er pt ved at slutte af efter nogle år i FC Midtjylland (fra Jan15), hvilket har resulteret i spændende projekter, som jeg altså nu sætter op i eget regi. Hertil vil jeg rigtig gerne snakke med ‘de rigtige’ fodboldfolk (måske dig?) om muligheder fremover. Jeg har en PhD baggrund i bla ‘cognitive neuroscience’ primært fra Oxford Uni., du kan evt spørge Flemming P (FCN) om hvem jeg er, hvis du vil? Mvh Lars OD
