Wolverhampton Wanderers FC has signed a multi-year deal with StatsBomb to use its data and analytics services.

This agreement demonstrates the club's ambition to build upon its recent European and domestic successes by utilising deep data and innovative platforms in its recruitment and performance analysis departments.

As part of the agreement, the English Premier League club has also become the latest elite team to sign up for StatsBomb 360, a product crafted at the forefront of innovation in football analytics. StatsBomb 360 adds a snapshot of player locations around every on-the-ball event during a match. The StatsBomb 360 data will enable Wolves to easily analyse its defensive shape, available passing lanes and decision-making, ball receipts in space, line-breaking passes and much more.

Wolves will also have access to StatsBomb's market-leading core data set and StatsBomb IQ platform. The performance data includes a number of unique metrics such as pressures by player and team, pass footedness and shot impact height. The StatsBomb IQ platform will enhance the club's recruitment and opposition analysis capabilities by making it easier to find suitable players via customisable templates and unearth patterns in its opponents' play.

Shergul Arshad, Chief Commercial Officer, StatsBomb, said:

"We are thrilled to be working with Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Premier League is fiercely competitive. By choosing StatsBomb as its data and analytics supplier, the Wolves scouting team has the best tools to find players across a wide range of leagues, and its match analysts have unparalleled data to evaluate opponents."

Speaking about the agreement, Mathew Pearson, Head of Performance and Research, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, said:

"At Wolves we constantly look to be innovative and progressive and to embrace new ideas and technologies. The addition of StatsBomb has allowed us to further integrate data into both our analysis and recruitment work flows and has been a valuable asset to both”
