Highlights

  • [08:58] Roger Müller on owned data ecosystems: “When we started to look at event data and match data to be used for different purposes […] we thought of building our own data infrastructure and moving from a simple sale of data licenses. […] One of the first things we wanted to do was to start communicating directly to our fans, via a website where the storytelling is led by data. […] Another crucial aspect, especially to our clubs, is match analysis: You need, as a federation, to be able to provide that asset. Finally, the third milestone in the owned data ecosystem is the connection and synchronization of data to video footage.”
  • [29:30] Hendrik Weber on demonstrating the success of a data-centric approach: “From a Bundesliga perspective, we started the journey a couple of years ago. […] The feedback has been really positive so far, as a testament to a journey that has been focusing on what the audiences want.”
