Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who are the courses for?

    The introduction course is designed to be accessible to everyone and teaches you the basics of data analytics in football. You don’t need to work in professional football or have advanced statistical knowledge. A basic understanding of football and statistics is useful. The Set Pieces course is more involved but is still accessible to anyone. We recommend if you are new to football analytics that you complete the Introduction course first.

    It’s very simple. You will need to create an account on our courses website, then you can watch the course videos at a time that suits you.

The Set Pieces course is available for 30 days.
