Actim Stats Explained
Actim Stats are a collection of team, player and match statistics.
They are derived from all the actions that take place during a match, including goals, shots on target, corners, fouls, offsides, passes, tackles, blocks and clearances. The raw data can be used to generate a wide range of tables and statistics such as player profiles, team and player head-to-heads and form guides.
PA Sport gathers match data for every Barclays English Premier League, Coca-Cola Championship and Scottish Premier League game.
The data is gathered by two methods – real-time match analysis and the study of video footage. The real-time analysis is conducted by ex-professional footballers that report on action at the grounds as it happens. Further, more detailed analysis is obtained by studying videos of the matches.
