Why do I see a different number of assists from other sources?

Please check with Opta customer services but in most cases this is because we do not count winning a penalty kick as an assist. See the Event Definitions FAQ for further details.

Where can I find a complete glossary of OptaPro's event definitions?

A full description of OptaPro's event definitions, and why it is so important to keep them consistent can be found on the OptaPro blog.

How do I see corner, freekicks and cross events in Xeatre's video player?

Xeatre can offer 2 levels of data integration - just events or including Opta event qualifiers. Please contact Xeatre to configure this: clubs@xeatre.tv

How do I use the query tool?

Rankings

• If you want all teams and players then select no one, otherwise specifically select teams and then players you want. You cannot select a player without also selecting his team.

• Then simply select which stats you want from each of the 8 slots - use the Min box to define a minimum value for that stat (e.g. at least 10 appearances)

• Select to rank then as a team total or by player

• Select if you want to limit the result to a specific number or home/away data.

• Select other options such as display teams, affilation (player nationality) and then click build to view the ranking or 'excel' to export it.

Data Output

• Same process, select competition, season and hit refresh

• If you want all teams/players then don't select anything. Otherwise you can select specific teams or players and then specific opposition (i.e. just data when playing against the top 4)

• Use options such age range to filter out players, playing position or date range.

• Then select Player Template and it will build a spreadsheet with 20 stats for the players who fit your criteria and the data will only be in the context of what you've search, i.e. against specific opponents or on a particular date. For access to the complete Opta data sheet please contact customerservice-uk@optasports.com

How do I sync Opta events on my SportsCode timeline?

Shift ALL events on your timeline along to the very first pass event which will be kick off. Speak directly to SportsCode about lead and lag times customisation. 

How do I export from Data Scout?

Right click on the grid view within any section and you are provided with the option to export to excel or pdf.

Do crosses include corners and freekick?

In default outputs yes, please check with Opta support who can provide either definition.

What is the difference between long and short passes?

Short passes are anything shorter than 25 yards, long passes anything over, Opta can provide individual passing distances in meters, please contact customer services for available outputs with this data. Opta can also provide data on "long balls", a pass aimed for a pitch position or 2nd ball rather than a specific player.

Is Video Scout Available on iPad?

Video Scout is currently migrating from Flash to HTML5 which will make it compatiable with all latest broswers and all smart phones and tablets. 

I cannot access Data Scout, and I am being asked to install plug-ins?

Data Scout is currently built in Silverlight, please follow the directed links to intall this plug-in. This will require you to allow Silverlight to use your internal storage to cache data. This will allow the program to run as fast as possible but does not significantly use up storage space.
