Wolves sign SBG for all their Video and Data Analysis Requirements

SBG Sports Software is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers FC to deliver next generation performance analysis solutions for the First Team through to the Academy and Recruitment.

Wolves have signed the full suite of SBG’s integrated data-driven video analysis applications, MatchTracker and Focus, as their complete toolset for player and match analysis.

Working with SBG during the lockdown period, the analysis team at Wolves re-assessed their workflows and evaluation processes as they prepared players for the resumption of the season and the pressure of compressed fixtures.

The advanced tactical insights MatchTracker delivers, with its unique built-in football intelligence, game-state models, and live data and video integration, matched the brief for the type of product that Wolves were looking for.

Focus and MatchTracker are being used for all aspects of performance analysis across the departments from the Academy to the First Team. The Wolves backroom team have created bespoke dashboards and templates to visualise hundreds of new KPIs and generate automated alerts and tagging, gaining deeper insight into specific aspects of play.

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC Head of Performance and Research, Andrew Findlay, comments:

“Analysis is key to informing the club’s performance strategy and we’re excited to be partnering with such an innovative and dynamic team as SBG. We’ve been struck by the rate of development of Focus and MatchTracker which shows their ambition and commitment for driving the football analysis sector forward. It’s a similar trajectory to Wolves and it’s that passion that will make this partnership exciting and productive.”

SBG Sports Software Commercial Director, Simon Cuff adds:

“Wolves are playing some of the most attractive football in the Premier League and have combined their exciting play with impressive results. Their intelligent recruitment policy and investment in their academy should ensure they continue to make progress and perhaps add some silverware to their trophy cabinet. We’re really thrilled to be working so closely with them.”
