Analytics FC Announces New Partnership with Apollon Limassol

Analytics FC are delighted to announce a new strategic partnership with Apollon Limassol. The collaboration will see Apollon access our market leading data-scouting platform TransferLab, developed in conjunction with LCP. It will also see them leverage our Virtual Scout services.

An ambitious and forward-thinking club, Apollon recently completed the development of a state of the art, new stadium on the outskirts of the city. The side won the league in 2021/22, their fourth title including two in the early 1990s. They have also been regular winners of the Cypriot Cup and have competed in European competition in every season since 2013/14, facing giants like Marseille and PSV Eindhoven in recent years.

By signing up with Analytics FC, Apollon will be able to leverage the company’s proprietary algorithms and utilise its experienced insights team to help cement their place at the top of the increasingly competitive Cypriot top tier, the Cyta Championship, and strengthen their European challenge.

Apollon’s Sporting Director Makis Papaioannou was very positive when discussing the partnership, saying, “We know that the championship in Cyprus is becoming increasingly competitive with a lot of financial investment amongst the teams. To keep pace and maintain a consistent challenge we must find every advantage we can. We are delighted to be working with Analytics FC, a company that has an excellent track record of working with top tier clubs, and is also extremely familiar with the Cypriot footballing landscape.”

Jeremy Steele, CEO of Analytics FC, added, “We are very pleased to be increasing our presence in Cyprus, a league I know well and that has really developed as a sporting and economic entity in the last five years. We are looking forward to supporting Apollon, a really dynamic and ambitious club, in their exciting journey.”
