Athlete Management Agency TMJ Signs Partnership With StatsBomb

The athlete management agency TMJ has partnered with StatsBomb to support its players with advanced performance data and customisable visualisations.

The American-based player agency focuses primarily on women’s soccer and will use the data to track the performance of its current players, scout potential new signings, and analyze how different players fit within specific playing styles and club philosophies.

As part of the agreement, TMJ will have access to StatsBomb's industry-leading data spec that records over 3,400 events per match and includes unique metrics such as Pass Footedness, Shot Impact Height, and Pressures By Player & Team. TMJ will also be able to analyze and compare how its players are performing in terms of On-Ball Value (OBV), a StatsBomb data science model that measures the value of every action on the pitch.

The partnership will also provide TMJ with access to the state-of-the-art platform StatsBomb IQ, which can be used to run extensive player and team analysis, visualize tactical sequences, and support talent identification workflows.

Speaking about the partnership, Guillermo Zamarripa, Founder & CEO, TMJ, said:

"Since its inception, TMJ has distinguished itself as a pioneer in women’s football as one of the first agencies worldwide to invest in the sport. We have built a specialized and sustainable business model in the women’s game that is unmatched. As we move into an exciting era for women’s football we are preparing TMJ for accelerated growth and a new strategic direction that will continue to position us as a positive influential force in the game.

Partnering with a pioneer in football data science like Statsbomb is a natural fit and something that I am extremely excited about. Women’s Football is evolving exponentially right in-front of our eyes and it is important to use data to drive organizational decisions that both affect the direction of our agency and the careers of the hundreds of women footballers we represent. Our investment in StatsBomb and data science is yet another step to continue creating and improving opportunities for our players worldwide.”

Martha Reyna, Customer Success Data Analyst, StatsBomb, added:

“It's great to have onboard our first women's only player agency who are trusting data to give an edge advantage to their players and managers, provide quality stats to their followers on social media and help them find the next big talent with our scouting tools. I have chatted with Guillermo and Oscar (co-CEO's) and their vision for TMJ being data driven is amazing. I am happy to know that StatsBomb is part of the process.”
