StatsBomb are committed to sharing new data and research publicly to enhance understanding of the game of Football. We want to actively encourage new research and analysis at all levels. Therefore we have made certain leagues of StatsBomb Data freely available for public use for research projects and genuine interest in football analytics. This data is the same industry-leading, professional spec that we collect for all leagues and includes a level of detail you won’t find from any other data provider, including:
- location of players on the pitch in any shot, including the position and actions of the Goalkeeper
- detailed information on ALL players applying defensive pressure on a player in possession – including how long the pressure lasted
- which foot a player passes with, and many more minor enhancements
Who knows where the next breakthrough may come from? We’re excited to find out and proud to be able to provide the opportunity for anyone to get involved!
Whilst we are keen to share data and facilitate research, we also urge you to be responsible with the data. Please read carefully and accept the User Agreement.
We will be adding tuition and support resources to this Resource Centre to help bolster your data analysis.
We have a primer of how to use StatsBomb Data in R available in two languages: English and Spanish. These guides will get you up and running and doing your own analysis in no time.
You can also find more information on the types of analysis you can do with StatsBomb data on our blog. If you have questions about the data or your analysis, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will endeavour to respond to every query, but please be patient!
