NEWS Beyond Heatmaps: What's next for football data

Next Tuesday (11th July) will see Opta hosting an event at the May Fair hotel, entitled “Beyond Heatmaps: What’s next for football data.”

From 7pm we will be hosting a panel discussion focused on how data can be best used now and in the future when covering football, featuring former England international and Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy, The Independent’s Chief Football Writer Miguel Delaney, BT Sport’s Head of Live Football Stephen Cook and Author and OptaJoe co-founder Duncan Alexander.

We then have Paul Carr, Senior Researcher for ESPN Stats & Info talking about how data usage is being taken to the next level through US sports coverage and what’s next for our industry.

To find out more about the event, including whether there are still spaces for attendees, please email peter.deeley@performgroup.com.

You’ll also be able to follow the event on social media through the account @OptaSuit and hashtag #BeyondHeatmaps.
