Partnerships

Partnering with the cream of the sports analysis industry

Opta have partnered with the sports analysis industry elite to integrate market-leading data feeds into the systems that professionals already use daily. This collaborative approach, combined with cutting edge products of its own ensures that OptaPro helps clubs to maintain a consistent data set throughout the whole analytical process.

These partnerships include: 

XOS Digital

Now acquired by XOS Digital, Opta began working with Stratbridge in 2008. Based in Boston, USA they have cemented themselves as the preferred scouting partner of over 20 NBA and NFL teams. Opta performance data can now be analysed with the very same tools via their customisable, dynamic interface.  

Scout7

Scout7 and Opta first began working together in 2008 with the integration of Opta data to the Scout7Xeatre.tv video platform. Today Opta has now integrated both its Widgets and VideoScout player into ProScout7, which is the professional football industry's largest online scouting and player recruitment database application, used by over 170 Clubs and National Federations worldwide. 

Xeatre

Xeatre provide a video streaming and editing platform for over 60 leagues worldwide. All of this video is linked directly to individual player records within the Scout7 database. Both companies teamed up with Opta in 2008 to index that video content with Opta data allowing for fast and effective video searching on anything from goals to possession regains.

Sportstec

SportsCode have integrated rugby and football Opta data to SportsCode Pro. This allows users to import up to 2000 Opta match events directly onto the SportsCode timeline live as the game is happening. With the key events covered this allows users to focus on their subjective game analysis.

Mediapro

Mediapro provide MediaCoach in association with the LFP to all 42 Spanish La Liga and Segunda teams. The MediaCoach system allows teams to search panoramic video via Opta events and provides detailed match statistics using Opta's unrivalled ball event database.

TRACAB

TRACAB are the leaders in the real time player movement tracking. They provide player tracking along with panoramic video to the MediaCoach system. This physical data is syncronised with Opta's event data to provide a complete analysis system to all Spanish league teams.

The Sports Office

The Sports Office have been working with Opta since 2007. All rugby union and league customers can access Opta data via this centralised data hub. Recently Opta have also integrated their football widgets with The Sports Office to allow their football clients to also access to Opta data alongside sports science, medical, scouting, training and performance data. 

Red Bee Media

Red Bee and Opta have been collaborating since 2010. The Piero system allows TV broadcasters, such as the BBC, to present Opta x/y event data using Red Bee's innovative technology. Now with professional sports teams using the Piero system for internal presentations Opta can again provide an additional layer of insightful objective data to the system.

The Professional Football Players Observatory

CIES and Raffaele Poli have been in partnership since 2009. Their yearly Demographic Study and Annual Review are among the most detailed studies of player transfers and squad composition available. Opta provide detailed statistics to complement the report and power their top five key performance indicators.

Bloomberg

Opta have been working closely with Bloomberg to produce an analysis and scouting tool for professional cricket clubs, national teams and players. Our aim is to provide the most powerful global tool on the market allowing users to search basic information such as scores and averages to more unique and insightful data sets, revolutionising the way cricket is analysed.
