Player Performance Data

Protective guidelines are essential to the collection of Player Performance Data

Collection of player data is an essential part of developing the game in the modern age, bringing value to clubs, match officials, competition organisers and players themselves. As a result, the football industry has the obligation to uphold data protection rights, transparent use of data, and fair player participation in commercial use of their data.

What you should know

All football stakeholders need to commit to advanced standards to ensure player protection

This includes all data being collected with a key interest in players’ well-being, an obligation to upholding data protection rights, transparent use of any data collected, and player participation in any commercial use of data

Player data has five main categories

Personal player data, performance data (collected during matches and training), on-the-ball data (such as goals, touches, etc.), tracking data (such as that obtained through wearable technology), and health and biometrics data.

International adherence to the above regulations will contribute to a stronger data policy

This in turn will allow players, clubs, leagues, and federations to benefit from innovative opportunities that can positively transform the football industry.
