Over recent years, the field of Sports Analytics has grown in popularity and importance. Data and statistics are used to make decisions in areas such as player/team performance, player health/nutrition and fan experience.
Sports Analytics goes beyond reporting statistics. It is about synthesizing collected data into meaningful and actionable information that can impact decisions made in the sports industry – a business with an estimated size of $500 Billion in the United States and $1.5 Trillion globally in 2015 (Plunkett Research). On-field analytics deals with improving the on-field performance of teams and players. It digs deep into aspects such as game tactics and player fitness. The future of analytics and statistics within professional sports organizations is bright and will only continue to strengthen as we move towards a more technically advanced world.
