Opportunities for Secondary Data Analysis at the Asian Cup 2011

Leave a comment

During last year’s FIFA World Cup I used data provided by the official FIFA website to inform posts about the analysis of performance.

This year’s Asian Cup has an official website rich in information too. (Link)

It is fascinating to observe how opportunities are increasing for performance analysts to use secondary data.

Data for the Asian Cup are provided by STATS and this is a news item about the service STATS are providing for the Tournament.

Here are some grabs of pages available for secondary analysis.

Team Formations

Statistics

Event Chart

Team Heat Map

Individual Player Heat Map

These data are secondary data. Any performance analyst using these data needs to consider the reliability of these data sets … but I do think the opportunities offered are remarkable.
