StatsBomb, the leading football data provider, has signed an agreement with Club América, one of the most prestigious teams in Latin America.
Club América will have better information with which to make key decisions after becoming one of the more than 100 professional clubs and federations around the world to benefit from StatsBomb’s cutting-edge data and models -- the most detailed and reliable available.
The Mexican side will also benefit from access to the highly customisable analysis platform StatsBomb IQ, enhancing their ability to scout and recruit players, analyse opposing teams and evaluate their own performance.
Pablo Peña Rodríguez, Head of Innovation at StatsBomb, said:
"We are delighted to be working hand-in-hand with a club as prestigious as Club América, a reference in both Mexican and Latin American football. The successful integration of advanced data into decision-making processes has never been more important than it is today in gaining a competitive advantage in elite football and we hope to accompany the club in many triumphs."
Enrique Cházaro, Coordinator of Sporting Intelligence, Club América said: "In football, as in all sports, technology and data collection have advanced a lot over the last few years. One of the principal objectives of Club América is to remain at the vanguard of technology because we believe that will allow us to gain a competitive advantage over other clubs and could also turn us into a reference point in the region.
"Working with StatsBomb will allow us to further develop this idea. There is no doubt in our minds that the information and reports we can generate from this application are of the highest quality available and will provide key insight in the analysis we do both in scouting players and in analysing opposition players on a week-to-week basis."
