The two rooms were frequently packed to enjoy presentations that ranged from experienced sports practitioners through to enthusiastic amateurs. The standard was extremely high throughout. As part of the event the research room saw seven presentations from groups and individuals who had been supplied with StatsBomb Data with a view to creating original research.
