Talks & Content

The use of data analysis in football has exploded over the past ten years and like any start-up industry it has faced many challenges. Ian will share some lessons he has learned along the way. Football is a combination of skill and luck, and understanding the difference between the two is critical to sustainable success. Ian will discuss how they’ve attempted to disentangle the signal of skill from the noise of luck, and how this can give teams an edge over the competition.
