StatsBomb, the industry-leading provider of advanced data and analysis solutions, has agreed a partnership with Chivas, one of the most renowned and successful teams in Mexican football.
Chivas have chosen StatsBomb's data and analysis solutions to strengthen and enhance their workflows in order to continue competing at the highest level both domestically and internationally.
The Guadalajara-based team will benefit from StatsBomb's core data product, with 3,400+ events per match in more than 120 global competitions, including unique metrics such as pressures at a team and player level, pass footedness and pass height, in addition to freeze frames that provide detailed defender and goalkeeper location information on every shot.
The club will also have access to StatsBomb IQ, the advanced analysis and scouting platform, allowing them to improve and streamline their processes around talent identification, opposition analysis and internal performance tracking.
Ricardo Larrandart, Director of Business Relations at StatsBomb
"StatsBomb have always paid particular attention to Mexico, not only because of the quality and potential of the league but also because of the rapid growth in the use of data in recent years.
"As part of our continuing growth in the Liga MX, we are delighted to welcome Club Deportivo Guadalajara as the newest member of the StatsBomb family.
"When Fernando Hierro trialed our IQ platform last season, he was certain that StatsBomb's solutions could provide fundamental support to the coaching team and scouting department at Chivas.
"That a club like Chivas, their directors and a legend of the game like Fernando Hierro have chosen us as their partner is a point of pride for us at StatsBomb and a further illustration of the excellent work we've been doing in Mexico."
On behalf of the directorship of Chivas
"The sporting project at Chivas needs continual enrichment in every sense and at every level in order to achieve success and excellence.
"The great task and challenge of developing in-house talent requires a huge amount of attention to detail in order to become more assertive in our processes, our methodologies, our analysis and our decision making.
"We need deep and precise data and information on our own performance, as well is to construct positional profiles for recruitment, and StatsBomb's platform and solutions fit perfectly with what we require to continue along the path we have laid out."
