Analytical outsourcing

Among the several primary operational spheres of the “Analysis & Research” department there is analytical cooperation with external entities.

We cooperate with football entities of different nature, while FDI support itself can take various forms.

Analysis service providers also have the opportunity to apply for consulting, led by Marcin Gabor. The author of the “Complex Analysis Model” has cutting-edge knowledge in the field of analytics, as well as extensive experience in this area. For five years, he served as Head of (a German analysis brand), created the concept of contextual analysis, in addition a series of professional products and analysis solutions for team as well as individual actions. Used today in about 150 European Clubs and several federations.

Since then, Marcin Gabor has been receiving requests from analytical companies for substantive advice. The reasons are many. First and foremost, a high-level – completely different from the conventional – football understanding and game understanding, as well as team and player development understanding that transfers into interpretation and exploration, meaning analytical understanding. Marcin Gabor is able to give analytical products a context that is usually lacking. According to the FDI expert, most analytics entities in the European market have great technology and mediocre analytics solutions. However, the advantage is built on content, not technology.


Forms of analytical consulting:

  • evaluation of the current database | context

  • criteria of data collection

  • defining of new KPIs based on the current database

  • support in the development of new products

  • implementation of the analysis tool at a football club
