    Remember Moneyball? Ever since its publication, the use of big data and analytics has swept throughout professional sports. Sports organisations are forced to search for continuous performance improvements because of the high-value stakes and the ever-present need to outperform competitors.

    Drawing on examples from football, rowing, cricket and hockey, we will discuss how analytics can uncover winning tactics on and off the field, can help to prevent athletes’ injuries, and can improve their fitness. You will also learn how it assists in improving talent development, and discover what managers in other industries can learn from sports analytics. Learn how analytics is transforming the football industry from a guest speaker from SciSports, the leading provider of advanced football analytics in the Netherlands and the revolutionary BallJames system.
