Why Match Tagging is a Thing from the Past

In the ever-evolving world of football, match tagging has emerged as a crucial task for teams and coaches. Video Analysts provide each action of interest in the match with a code for later analysis. It provides valuable insights into performance evaluation and game preparation. However, manually tagging matches is a time-consuming and meticulous process that demands expertise and attention to detail. Today, we're here to shed light on the benefits of automating match tagging and how it can revolutionize your club's football philosophy.

Why automate match tagging?

Your club may have considered hiring a data science team to tackle match tagging, but let's explore the drawbacks. How long would it take to create a new workflow? Is it seamlessly linked to video? Can it be easily shared with players and staff members? This is where automated match tagging steps in, offering a more efficient and effective way to analyze performance data.

Reasons why automated match tagging is preferable to manual tagging:

  1. Speed: Automated tagging processes data in real-time, providing immediate analysis of events as they unfold. This advantage allows for quick tactical decision-making during matches and better preparation for future games.

  2. Consistency: With automation of match tagging, data is consistently tagged using predefined criteria and parameters. This reduces human error and increases the accuracy of the analysis, ensuring a standardized approach across all matches.

  3. Scalability: Automated tagging can handle large volumes of data, enabling simultaneous analysis of multiple games, teams, and leagues. This scalability opens up new possibilities for comprehensive performance evaluation and comparison.

  4. Cost-effectiveness: Automating match tagging is more cost-effective, making advanced analytics accessible to clubs with varying budgets. Even smaller teams or organizations can leverage the power of data-driven insights without breaking the bank.

The MyGamePlan platform offers the necessary tools to automate manual processes seamlessly. Even without extensive data science knowledge, you can effortlessly combine event and tracking data, creating, tracking, and sharing the metrics that matter to your club's football philosophy.
