At StatsBomb, we are firmly committed to supporting the development of women’s football. We offer free access to our scouting and analysis platform StatsBomb IQ to the teams of over 10 women’s leagues; we publish free data from the primary international competitions, the World Cup and the Euros; and we work on statistical models that fully reflect the women’s game.
Over time, we have also increased our coverage of women’s competitions.
In January, we announced that we had begun to collect data for Mexico’s Liga MX Femenil, our first Latin American league. Now, we are delighted to announce that we have started to cover the top flight women’s league in Brazil: the Campeonato Brasileiro de Futebol Feminino Série A1, often known as the Brasileirão Feminino A1.
Brazil is arguably Latin America’s leading light in women’s football. It is the region’s only national team to have participated in every World Cup to date, while it also dominates the primary South American competitions at both at club and national team level. As an example, Brazilian teams have triumphed in 11 of the 14 runnings of the women’s Copa Libertadores, including each of the last four.
In recent years, numerous Brazilian players have had a positive impact in Europe or the United States, and it is for that reason that it is a competition of great interest to scouts in the major leagues. In the first few months of 2023, Adriana (Corinthians > Orlando Pride), Ary Borges (Palmeiras > Racing Louisville) and Julia Bianchi (Palmeiras > Chicago Red Stars) all left the Brazilian league to join clubs in the NWSL.
Corinthians are the league’s dominant team, champions in each of the last three years, but teams like Palmeiras, holders of the Copa Libertadores, and Internacional, last year’s beaten finalists, feature among the other clubs hoping to compete for this year’s title.
It is a very attractive competition, and one that now benefits from the coverage of StatsBomb data, the most detailed and precise available.
Our women’s football data features exactly the same level of detail as our men’s data, including our exclusive pressure data, StatsBomb xG, the most reliable expected goals model in the industry, and advanced statistical models such as On-Ball Value (OBV).
As is customary, we have a very special offer for Brazilian teams.
We’ve already mentioned that we offer free access to our advanced analysis and scouting platform StatsBomb IQ for their own leagues to women’s teams in Australia, England, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Sweden and the United States. Now, we are extending that offer to the Campeonato Brasileiro de Futebol Feminino Série A1.
Brazilian men’s teams such as Atlético Mineiro and Internacional have already integrated StatsBomb’s solutions into their scouting and analysis workflows. Now Brazilian women’s teams will have access to the same tools at zero cost.
If you work at a Brasileirão Feminino A1 team, please get in touch to request your access to the platform.
