Stats Perform has been shortlisted in three categories at the 2024 Sports Technology Awards.
Opta Vision, our advanced AI-enriched performance dataset for football, has been nominated in both the Innovation of the Year and the Best Data and Analytics in Sport categories.
Launched in 2023, Opta Vision combines player tracking data, captured remotely using computer vision technology, with on-ball Opta event data to generate new AI-enriched performance metrics and player fitness outputs. The nominations recognise Opta Vision as being one of the leading technological innovations in sport across the past twelve months.
In addition, our involvement in the introduction of advanced data Insights for the 2023 Rugby World Cup, delivered in partnership with World Rugby, Capgemini and CSM Sport & Entertainment, has been recognised with a nomination for Partnership of the Year.
This partnership resulted in the introduction of world-first metrics, including Pitch Position Insights and Momentum Tracker, as part of the 2023 Rugby World Cup’s official competition data. These were delivered to millions of rugby fans worldwide via a syndicated world broadcast feed and content published on official Rugby World Cup digital channels.
The 2024 Sports Technology Awards will be taking place in London on Thursday, May 9th at The Londoner, Leicester Square, where the winners in each category will be announced.
