Santos FC Partner With Analytics FC

Analytics FC are proud to announce that Santos FC are the newest client to sign up to our flagship data-scouting platform, TransferLab.

Santos are one of the most successful teams in Brazil and to many, symbolise O Jogo Bonito due to the phenomenal team assembled during the 1960s, led by the late, great Pelé. The club’s most recent success was in 2016, when they won the Campeonato Paulista, although they were also beaten finalists in the 2020 Copa Libertadores.

“It is very exciting to be working with a club of Santos’ reputation and history”, said Analytics FC CEO Jeremy Steele. “One of the most successful teams in Brazilian history, Santos has shown that it also is a forward-thinking club that wants to work with cutting-edge data tools. We are excited to add our expertise to Santos’ workflow and help the club achieve their goals in domestic and continental competition.”

Santos’ Head of Match and Tactical Analysis, Maickel Bach Padilha, added, “We are delighted to be working with Analytics FC and their TransferLab platform. We were immediately impressed with their approach and the quality of the platform. We are always looking for ways to add depth and quality to our processes, and TransferLab will do exactly this, helping us make informed decisions in the market.”

The partnership comes through Analytics FC’s Latin American and Iberian sales partners, Saravá. Saravá has been working alongside the Analytics FC commercial team to introduce its services to clubs, federations, agencies and academies across Latin football markets.
