Blackpool Sign Up to TransferLab

Analytics FC are delighted to announce that Blackpool are the latest club to sign up to our market-leading data services.

Going forward, the Tangerines are looking to continue their steady improvement in the Championship, having consolidated themselves in the division this season after a promotion from League One.

Blackpool have been a great advertisement for a smart approach to football. Their senior management team has already developed a reputation for being shrewd and cost-effective in the market. By signing up to our TransferLab platform, the club will have access to Analytics FC’s unique performance algorithms as well an all-important GBE points tracking model to identify eligible foreign talent, providing them with another edge as they look to recruit more quality talent this summer.

Head of Football Operations, John Stephenson, was positive about the partnership. “The Championship is an incredibly competitive league and finding an edge in recruitment operations is vital. TransferLab adds another layer to our processes. With the data insight and flexibility that the Analytics FC system offers, we can integrate that into our way of working and continue to punch above our weight in this league,” he said.

Analytics FC’s CEO and founder Jeremy Steele echoed these sentiments. “We love working with smart clubs like Blackpool. When it comes to using data in football, the hardest thing to achieve is initial buy-in – although that is slowly changing. Once you have that at the strategic level in Clubs, you can start to see the gains almost immediately. We look forward to working with Blackpool and helping them continue on their upward trajectory.”

TransferLab uses event data from over 100 men’s and 20 women’s leagues from around the world covering around 100,000 male and 20,000 female players. It uses advanced analytics to assess each player’s past performance and help predict their future performance. The TransferLab Player Privacy Policy can be accessed here.

At Analytics FC, we provide software and data services to entities within football looking to realise the gains possible from analytical thinking.
