The impact of analysts saving 50 hours per game week

In practice, it takes performance analysts between 1.5 and 2 hours to complete a match analysis on a 90-minute match. So a saving of 50 hours is not to be missed. 

Performance analysts at a leading EFL club stated that “MatchTracker saves on average 50 hours a week. That’s an additional staff member…”

This was stated with reference to how MatchTracker as part of the Catapult Pro Video suite streamlines and automates many of the manual processes performance analysts have to do. In a sense, by using MatchTracker and following Steve Collin’s three key workflows to save time, analyst teams can bring their post-match analysis time down to a single hour.

As a result, analysts can either do more analysis to delve deeper into that single game, spend that time back analysing other games, or focus on building more insightful analysis presentations for their coaches, increasing the impact they have on their team’s performance.
