This Performance Analysis in Football programme from UCFB x GIS will give students the necessary tools to understand and explore the performance analysis principles that rule the modern game. You will gain the knowledge of the theory and practice that enables enhanced performance on the pitch as well as in player recruitment.


The Performance Analysis in Football programme from UCFB x GIS encompasses all that is required of a performance analyst whilst assessing and measuring expectations of this role within an applied football context. The variation of modules captures the appreciation required for an aspiring analyst in relation to what would be expected within a professional sporting environment. Understanding the roles that interlink with the role of a Performance Analyst is just as prevalent as understanding the role of an analyst in isolation.
