Football Data

Our data spec captures events, player tracking and play-by-play to create 400+ data points per play at the highest possible levels of detail and accuracy.

Low-frequency player tracking

StatsBomb’s Football Data is a hybrid, event-based data product which tracks the movement of every player on the field two and half times a second.

For every play, at least five freeze frames are generated by a combination of cutting-edge computer vision and highly-trained collectors using a rigorous quality assurance process.

Pre-snap alignment & motion

At snap

Mesh point

At throw or handoff

At catch or interception

Or when RB reaches line of scrimmage

Our Football Data includes

Route patterns

Isolate the moment the ball was thrown and look at who was open. Is a QB conservative, rarely trying to fit passes into tight coverage, or is he prone to take risks?

QB throw accuracy

Our Football Data moves beyond buckets. We accurately record where on the receiver’s body the throw arrived. When combined with route pattern vectors, you get a lot of information on QB accuracy

Line battles

Objective information on who blocks who and when for every play to help understand where penetration, pressure, holes and movement are made on passing and running plays

Analysis - offence

Identify formation IDs, conduct play and drive analysis and unearth down and distance tendency profiles

Analysis - defence

Defensive back depth from the line of scrimmage, and ball relative width of safeties, linebackers
