About

Integral

An analytics-oriented digital magazine for fantasy football players, bettors, and fanatics published by Soccermetrics Research.

The game is changing

For generations, football has appeared to be too fluid and too random for analysis. Now, teams and coaches are investing in using data and analysis to make better decisions and improve their teams. A global community of analysts have taken on the challenge in answering some of the toughest questions about the sport we love. This is Soccer’s Moneyball revolution.

A new publication for a new era

Our digital magazine, Integral, will put the industry’s latest analysis and information in your hands. We will feature leading soccer analysts and showcase their work in understanding the game. Whether you want to destroy your fantasy leagues, make better bets, or win your argument on who’s the better player, this magazine will give you the information you want! Our first release will be August 15th and will focus on the Premier League. Future editions will focus on Champions League, Major League Soccer, World Cup, and other competitions.

Inside look on today’s analytics community

We highlight each segment of the soccer industry and provide behind-the-scenes insight from industry leaders.  From Damien Comolli giving a detailed look at how management uses analytics to Martin Tyler sharing how he uses analytics during a broadcast, you will get a never before seen look at how analytics impacts the game.

Dominate in fantasy

Use the same analytics and information professional teams use in assessing player value, projecting future statistics, and evaluating player matchups. Fantasy experts will provide you with insights on their strategies including what formation is best and budget allocation tips.

Team-by-team previews

Our team previews will be packed with information and analysis that gives a never-before-seen overview on your favorite team and their opponents. Each team will be analyzed based on Manager, Expected Formation, Offseason Changes, Previous Season Review, and Upcoming Season Preview. Grades, benchmarks, and rankings are given for key elements of play and we review the strengths and weaknesses of every team.

League Statistical Almanac

Integral will be filled with historical data and statistics.  Last year, one of our co-founders published a digital book that highlighted over 20 years of Premier League football.  It is one of the most in depth resources on Premier League statistics ever released with over 581 pages of statistics on over 12,000 players.  You can download this almanac at this link: Premier League Almanac.  We want to provide that information to you as a mobile resource.

What we’ve done before

In addition to the Premier League Almanac we released last year, we’ve also provided data management and analytics for numerous teams and leagues all around the world.  Our prospect reports are used by teams to complement their scouting networks and our Executive Dashboard is used by leagues and teams to analyze quality of play and temp metrics.  As a business, our focus is on these professional clients, but we think individuals like you deserve richer, higher quality analytical information.  You can check out some of our analytics in our blog or follow us on twitter (@soccermetrics) to learn a little more about what we've done and what we're working on. 

Why we need your help

We are data geeks and analysts. We’re not magazine publishers. We’ve already done most of the legwork in compiling the data and performing our analysis. With your help, we will be partnering with leading designers, publishers, and editors to provide you with the highest quality product. We will also license the necessary software to make a digital magazine and image rights are very costly.

Risks and challenges

We've overcome a lot of challenges so far, from acquiring the data to doing the analytics, but putting all the pieces together to make it a successful publication is what makes us most worried. We've partnered with some of the leading designers and developers who have years of experience in publishing magazines, both in print and on digital forms.
