Soccerlytics in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Hochschule Hannover)

The growing significance of Business Intelligence in football was particularly noticeable prior to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. In preparation for the World Cup, the German national team successfully used gathered data to, on one hand, improve their own game and on the other hand, analyse their opponents and use this to their own advantage. Out of love for science and passion for football, in 2015 Futura Sports Consulting developed its first Business Intelligence product for football clubs. This includes both the hardware and software, which enable detailed account and visualisation in real-time. In another academic project, the data analysis and visualisation were improved. Player information, such as running performance, speed and accuracy, as well as a new software solution were improved and successfully implemented. Further projects in cooperation with Prof. Dr. König and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Hochschule Hannover) are already in the pipeline. We will gladly provide consultation for your team for planning and implementing Business Intelligence.

U-21 European Championship in the Czech Republic

We – and many football fans – await the approaching U-21 European Championship in the Czech Republic with great anticipation. We can gladly report, that both of our clients have been confirmed in the final line-up for the Serbian U-21 national team. Both goalkeeper, Nemanja Stevanovic from Cukaricki Belgrade and striker, Nikola Trujic from Partizan Belgrade will participate in the U-21 European Championship. In the first group match on 17 June 2015 in Prague, Serbia is up against the German team. We wish our clients success at the European Championship and many appearances.

Transfer success for Futura Sports Consulting

In the first transfer period, Futura Sports can already report a significant transfer. One of our clients, Nikola Trujic – currently playing for the U-21 Serbian national team – will transfer to from Napredak Krusevac to the current Serbian champion Partizan Belgrade in the season 2015/16. Nikola Trujic played for all of the youth teams at Partizan Belgrade and thus is returning to his most familiar football team. Our client can thus concentrate fully on the up-coming U-21 European Championship in the Czech Republic. Directly following that, preparation with Partizan Belgrade, as well as qualification for the Champions League await.
