Assisting talent & supporting production teams

Opta data can be used to provide objective data to support the opinions of your presentation teams and studio talent.  Positional data can bring your analysis to life through the use of innovative and insightful visualisations such as player touchmaps and average formation graphics.

Fully integrated with cutting edge touchscreen solutions

To enable the best possible analytical approach, Opta data is fully integrated with a number of touchscreen solutions, including Hego, RT Software and Alston Elliot.

This means that presenters and pundits have a whole range of Opta performance data at their fingertips.  This includes regular match statistics and head to head data but also scales up to the most detailed data such as highly granular player pass maps.

Consistent data across leagues & competitions

For a broadcaster with a suite of rights, Opta are an ideal partner.  We collect data from all of the world's premier sports competitions using the same collection methodology.

This means that production teams can have access to comparative data across leagues and an unmatched historical archive, bringing context to the analysis in a way that no other data supplier can.
