Eintracht Frankfurt Partnership Reinforces StatsBomb’s Presence In The German Market

StatsBomb has signed an agreement to provide its advanced performance data and customisable analysis tools to the Eintracht Frankfurt men’s and women’s teams. 

The partnership with the SaaS sports analytics company highlights both teams’ ambition to enhance their performance analysis and scouting departments with the most granular and insightful data available in the industry. 

Both teams will utilise StatsBomb’s contextual event data across key aspects of their clubs’ operations, strengthening their ability to analyse team performances, identify new prospects and evaluate upcoming opponents.

As part of the agreement, the men’s team will become the latest professional side to sign up for StatsBomb 360. The 360 product delivers contextual event data at a transformational level of detail, giving the locations of all players on the pitch during each of the 3,400 events per game.

The 360 data access will allow the Bundesliga side to visualise key actions from its matches with the 360 Freeze Frame Viewer. The viewer is a data visualisation tool that helps users to see player locations around each selected event.

The 360 data will also enable the men’s side to conduct team, opposition and performance analysis at a much deeper level of detail, including metrics such as Line-Breaking Passes, Ball Receipts in Space and more. 

Bastian Quentmeier, Leiter Datenanalyse, Eintracht Frankfurt, said: 

“We’re looking forward to working with StatsBomb. It is a highly exciting opportunity to further professionalise our scouting approach, especially in the women’s field.”

Ismail Tari, Business Development Lead, StatsBomb, added:

“We are delighted to be working with Eintracht Frankfurt and supporting the women’s and men’s teams with StatsBomb 360 and our advanced base data. The club has shown real ambition to work with insightful data & analytics, and we look forward to helping them succeed.”
