RWD Molenbeek sign up with Analytics FC

Analytics FC are delighted to announce that RWD Molenbeek are the latest club to sign up to our market-leading data services. RWD Molenbeek will have access to our TransferLab data-scouting platform, developed in conjunction with LCP.

RWDM is a Brussels-based club which won last seasons’ Challenger Pro League, thereby securing top flight football in the Belgian Pro League for next season. The club was recently bought by John Textor’s Eagle Football Holdings and joins Crystal Palace, Botofogo and Olympique Lyon in his portfolio.

RWDM’s Tom Chambers said, “We are very pleased to be entering into this collaboration with Analytics FC. The club achieved its goal last season of winning promotion, and we now turn our attentions to achieving our aims in the top flight. Belgian football has a strong track record of uncovering talented players from across the world and we have no doubt that Analytics FC’s platform will not only assist us in finding such players, but help our scouting team to assess them quickly and effectively.”

Jeremy Steele, the CEO of Analytics FC, added, “Projects like the one happening at RWD Molenbeek get us really excited at Analytics FC. Newly-promoted and under new ownership, with a hunger to improve their processes – it is a very exciting prospect working with the Club. We know the power data can have in football, when utilised correctly. So when a club already has the experience of someone like Tom Chambers and the buy-in from club ownership, it makes it much easier to implement our services into their structure and really make a difference. We look forward to helping RWDM in the Pro League this season”.
