Nuestra Historia

Nuestros inicios como blog

StatsBomb comenzó como un blog de análisis de fútbol en 2013 cuando Ted Knutson, nuestro fundador, comenzó a escribir con la intención de crear un lugar en el que centralizar buenos análisis deportivos en Internet. StatsBomb pronto se convirtió en el lugar de referencia en el que encontrar contenido de calidad basado en datos y se logró el éxito de convertir el blog en una sólida comunidad de analistas de todo el mundo.

Consultoría para equipos

Una vez alcanzado una relevancia en el mundo del análisis de fútbol, muchos clubs comenzaron a contactar StatsBomb para recibir ayuda. El negocio que ahora es StatsBomb comenzó como una consultoría para equipos, trabajando para consolidar una sólida cultura basada en datos en organizaciones de ligas y competiciones de todo el mundo.

Construyendo StatsBomb IQ

El primer producto de StatsBomb fue StatsBomb IQ y, con el paso de los años, ha seguido consolidándose como la plataforma de visualización de datos más querida en todo el mundo del fútbol. Aunque originariamente StatsBomb IQ tomaba datos de otras compañías, pronto descubrimos que para seguir creciendo necesitábamos mejores datos creados por nosotros mismos.

Uniendo fuerzas con Arqam FC

Nos asociamos con Arqam FC, con sede en El Cairo, Egipto, y nació StatsBomb Data. Arqam FC era una empresa de análisis que había desarrollado una forma de recopilar y analizar partidos de fútbol con gran detalle. Eran el socio ideal para StatsBomb y unimos fuerzas oficialmente en 2019. Arqam también tiene una agencia de creación de contenido de medios, Arqam Digital, que trabaja con clubes y federaciones, principalmente en la región MENA.

Creando StatsBomb data

Sabíamos que los datos disponibles en ese momento tenían lagunas que comprometían la capacidad de los analistas para obtener una imagen real del rendimiento, así que agregamos nuevas métricas que ayudaron a completar el rompecabezas. Introdujimos presiones, transformando cómo se analizaban las acciones defensivas. Introdujimos fotogramas congelados para medir con precisión la altura en la que se realiza el disparo y, así, crear un modelo xG verdaderamente representativo. Los datos de StatsBomb brindaron a los analistas las herramientas que necesitaban para hacer su trabajo con la mayor precisión.

Fútbol Americano

A principios de 2022, StatsBomb se convirtió en un proveedor de datos multideportivos. Llegamos al fútbol americano y usamos toda la experiencia adquirida hasta la fecha para producir una especificación de datos híbrida jugada a jugada especialmente dedicada al fútbol americano. Con IQ para fútbol americano, ahora estamos revolucionando otro deporte.
