Two seasons ago, Atletico de Madrid createdthe Department of Analysis for their Academy teams. This was an essential part of a decisive commitment to integrate video analysis as a resource to help the grassroots improve performance. Jose Luis Sanchez Vera, Head of the Department, showed us how they are structured and their philosophy.
Recently, we posted about the Spanish side Sevilla FC’s Area of Analysis. We revealed some interesting things about them: origin, organisation and how they interact with other departments within the club. In this second part, we will dig into their video analysis workflows, which are carried out thanks to their 7 Nacsport licences (5 Scout Plus + 2 Elite).
Sevilla FC is an exemplary team within Spanish football. The club’s management model and their signing policy are just a couple of the most successful acknowledgments. However, their commitment to innovation also goes above and beyond. Their Analysis department is pioneering in Spain and in just a couple of seasons, they have become a reference for others within Spanish football.
“Nowadays, Nacsport is an essential resource in our daily work”. These words are from Argentinian Superliga side Club Atletico Talleres, regarding the presence of Nacsport in their video analysis workflows.
Néstor Romero is the performance analyst for Venezuelan football team Carabobo FC, who are currently in the playoff to fight for the Torneo Clausura title (they are one of the four possible champions). This season they have started to use a Nacsport Scout Plus licence, which has “allowed us to review and deeply analyse our game and opposition”.
Nacsport is probably the preferred video analysis software in the Spanish Liga. Half of the teams in one of the most important football competitions in the world are currently using our software (more than any other system). The growing interest has reached the Barclays Premier League this season, as Middlesbrough FC have chosen Nacsport for their analysis processes.
Maybe some of our readers outside the UK will know about Huddersfield Town FC because they will be Manchester City’s next rivals in the 2017 FA Cup. For the Nacsport family however, they are much more than this. They have a lot to show our community. For instance, how they integrate Opta data into Nacsport to be used in their analysis workflows.
The Scottish FA is the second oldest football association in the world. Since 1873, the SFA has been providing their players and teams with the best resources so they can improve results. Now, Nacsport will be part of that challenge after they have ordered a license package for their analysis workflows.
