What you should know
All stakeholders need to commit to advanced standards to ensure player protection
This includes all data being collected with a key interest in players’ wellbeing, an obligation to uphold 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), tracking data (such as that obtained through wearable technology), and health and biometrics data.
International adherence 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.
