StatsBomb are delighted that RCD Mallorca have achieved their objective of an immediate promotion back to the top flight of Spanish football. The club partnered with StatsBomb last summer to access insight from our industry leading data set and have been highly engaged users of StatsBomb IQ, our advanced and highly customisable football analytics platform.
RCD Mallorca are one of nearly 100 professional clubs across the world to benefit from access to StatsBomb’s cutting edge data covering over 3,400 events per match across more than 80 global competitions, enhancing their ability to scout and recruit players, analyse upcoming opponents and evaluate team performance. Mikel Gandarias, Scout and Data Analyst at RCD Mallorca, said:
"Success has arrived at the end of a very long season that was almost a direct continuation of the previous campaign. Our plans were already being worked on before our relegation because there was very little time to develop them. We have been very consistent throughout the season, with a strong defence and good attack. During our planning and throughout the season, StatsBomb’s data has helped us make good decisions. It has been an important tool in our day-to-day work. The success of promotion is the fruit of a great collective effort."
Pablo Peña Rodríguez, StatsBomb’s Head of Tactical Innovation and Business Development, said: "We are delighted to partner with RCD Mallorca supplying them with cutting edge data and analysis tools. From the very first day, we encountered a very ambitious team willing to do things in an innovative way to regain the place they deserve at the highest level of Spanish football. We would like to congratulate the club and their fans for a fantastic season and wish them the best of luck in their return to La Liga."
