NEWS Opta Match Experience - 5th July

On the 5th July Opta will be running an 11-a-side football match for journalists and influencers within the sporting industry, which will be held at Knights Community Stadium, Gander Green Lane –  the home of Sutton United FC.

The game will provide those attending the opportunity to witness how our analysts collect, collate and summarise the data that they themselves use to bring new angles to their sports coverage.  The teams will be made up of journalists from the likes of BT Sport, Sky Sports, NBC and the Premier league and influencers from Hashtag United and The Front Three.

During the match the players will have their performances tracked in real-time by Opta’s expert data analysts to the same detail used during professional matches in top leagues around the world, including the Premier League, EFL and MLS. Every pass, shot, tackle and goal will be recorded with the players having a bespoke match centre created to view all their statistics during the game. We’ll also be sharing detailed performance packs to them post-match which will include some of Opta’s new advanced metrics, including their expected goals rating.
