How Data
Drives Football
Data is at the forefront of modern football. Developing a winning game plan means recording and analyzing variables and scenarios - from player data captured during training and matches, to data on the millions of supporters around the world who follow and engage with the club.

When this is coupled with all the data from the business operations of the club’s multiple domestic and internal sites and the media recorded and produced by the club’s content and broadcast teams, there is a significant requirement for robust backup and secure data storage.
In partnership with Acronis, Liverpool FC is able to optimize technology usage to improve its performance both on and off the pitch.
