Today it has been announced that the most popular football league in the world, the Premier League, has chosen Oracle Cloud to enhance football fans’ experience across the globe.
The Premier League have chosen OCI to power brand new, live insights into the beautiful game, including:
Average formation tracker, which will give fans a more detailed insight into how teams set up tactically in different situations. We’ll be able to visualise the winning tactics of football mastermind and serial winner Pep Guardiola!
Live win probability, using four years of match data to calculate the chances of winning throughout a match – a tool to keep up your sleeve for impressing your friends when you can predict who is going to come from behind to win!
Momentum tracker, which allows you to see who is most likely to score next. This will certainly be an interesting one to see whether VAR decisions kill a team’s momentum…
Overall, if like me you’re a lover of football and data, this is a very exciting partnership and I look forward to seeing these new metrics in play next season.
