Data analytics is an important cultural part of certain sports, in particular baseball and basketball in the US. High-quality data sources for these sports are easy to find and growing in popularity. However for other popular international sports, in particular football (aka “soccer”), these sources simply do not exist. And people want them.
Statium is all about football data analytics, and bringing the techniques of sabermetrics (remember Moneyball?) to the football world. Our role is to gather data, analyze it and present it in a precise, engaging and design-friendly way via our website and our app.
The website and app are currently available in English and French and focus on the top 5 European leagues (England's Premier League, Spain's Liga, Germany's Bundesliga, Italy's Serie A and France's Ligue 1) as well as the US league (MLS) and international competitions (UEFA Champions League and Europa League, EURO, World Cup).
Crafted with love in Paris, France.
