Scouting and Analysis Management

Strategic planning around player recruitment is an essential requirement to sustain on-field success. Incorporating records for over 730,000 players worldwide, the Intelligent Sports Framework (ISF) is a central access hub which allows clubs, leagues and federations to intelligently manage day-to-day analysis and scouting workflows. 

Global Database  

The early identification of emerging talent is a fundamental requirement for recruitment departments. The ISF global database incorporates match information and biographical player data from across 250 leagues and competitions worldwide, providing an invaluable resource to assist scouts and recruitment analysts monitor the global player market. 

  • Coverage of club and international football down to U16 level
  • Over 100,000 fixtures published each year with team line-ups
  • Opta event data incorporated into match information for over 70 competitions


Scouting Management  

The day-to-day management and coordination of a scouting department can be organised centrally within ISF, from assigning games to the club’s network of scouts through to the entry and review of detailed team and player reports. 

  • A central scouting planner provides information on upcoming assignments to scouts, including ticket, accommodation and travel details 
  • Customised player and team report templates, tailored to the club, ensures all assessments are structured in line with the club’s KPIs
  • All scouting information collected on a player or team is archived in their own central record
  • Player targets can be categorised, allowing clubs to organise their recruitment into separate strands
  • All players being monitored can be presented to senior management via a shortlist presentation tool, with links to data, reports and video analysis


Data Interrogation  

With hundreds of assessments being submitted each week, having the ability to interrogate reports is vital to identify players who fit the club’s recruitment profile. The ISF’s Advanced Search allows users to filter across various criteria to pull-out players of interest. 

  • Clubs can tailor searches using positional-specific scorecard data in reports, to identify players matching positional KPIs
  • Additional filters can narrow searches via age, experience, nationality and various other biographical criteria



Hosted within ISF, ProVideo is a video platform integrated with the Stats Perform sequence framework, enabling users to conduct detailed analysis to support opposition analysis and profile recruitment targets.  

  • ProVideo incorporates extensive coverage of match footage from across the globe, with over 3,000 new matches becoming available each month
  • Deep integration and synchronisation with Opta data facilitates fast, in-depth analysis of playing styles and player involvement across multiple matches
  • Online analysis can be saved and archived into playlists, which can be shared with club colleagues, coaches and players via ISF and email
