BLOG: OptaPro German Conference takes place

Over 50 analysis and recruitment staff from a range of clubs across Germany, the Netherlands, England and Austria gathered today at Signal Iduna Park for the inaugural OptaPro German Conference.


Speakers from Leicester City, Reading, West Ham United and Charlton Athletic delivered sessions that focused on data's role in the match analysis cycle and how it can be used to inform decision-making in regards to recruitment strategies.

PO Welcome

OptaPro, along with partners Institut für Fussballmanagement, also delivered presentations which both showcased how advanced analytics can be applied within an elite performance environment.

Alongside the presentations, a unique panel also took place. Presenters Andy Blake (Leicester City) and Steve Head (Charlton Athletic) were joined by Sven Mislintat (BVB) and Max Reckers (Ajax). The four practitioners took 60 minutes to discuss a range of issues relevant to football analytics, how they approach them with their respective coaching staff, the differences and similarities across various competitions and cultures and finally how they see this industry progressing over the coming years. 



A full event review along with presentations from the event will be uploaded in the near future (with presentations to be made available online)
