About this project

For years we have tried to push an upgrade on the way to see football for fans, coaches, players and managers … for everyone that loves and lives football!

We believe football deserves more !

On the next video will show you more about our project

Why KICKSTARTER?  

We are on kickstarter because we want to consolidate and share this powerful tool we have created with hard work and dedication. We are confident that in the future will be essential the quality information we offer for any professional football team. In the videos you can meet us; see who we are and where we want to go with our performance statistics. The next step is that we want to cover all the final phase of Champions League 2013-14. For this we seek the necessary support that allow us to boost our platform, expand and improve our network of analysts to analyze large championships and professional leagues, so that football can take a leap in performance specialized registers.

We have initiated the SICO analysis of several matches on the most important clubs' championship, the Champions League 2013-14. We want to publish data of the competition with all the final-phase matches, and complete the group-phase matches of the teams qualified to the 16th round. We are here, on Kickstarter, to bring all the football fans together who are interested in having specialized performance information, and fulfill the dream of a sport with specialized information for more objective analysis.

Then if all goes well we want to provide coverage for the main national teams in the upcoming World Cup Brasil 2014.

Through the various pledges we have raised, we publish information for different types of football fans...…

We want to show you the usefulness of SICO Pre Match Projections (or Basic Simulator, (Pledge $50)). We perform a projection of a match from the starting lineup of each team, based on the historical performance of the players. For the example we used a recent match of the Spanish League (LFP), Atletico Madrid against Barcelona. In the chart you will see SICO projections for this match. When a match is projected in the highly competitive area (as in the example), our historical data says there are 30% chance that the result is a tie (draw). You will have access to these interesting projections for the 29 matches of the final phase of Champions League 2013-14.

METHODOLOGY AND TECHNICAL ASPECTS

Unlike other sports, football does not have an accurate statistical standard that measures production in official competitions. With SICO, we provide a specialized performance data system that allows evaluating technical aspects of the game objectively. We've developed a performance evaluation methodology which accurately measures the individual production of each player during the football matches. The SICO-Index is a complete system of variables organized in three dimensions. It is a performance index that integrates all the information captured by the SICO evaluation method in a highly-reliable final result.

No algorithms, no normalization criteria, no arbitrary predefinitions, no redundant information.

Our method is based on detailed observation, the correct classification of actions, and effective design variables that lead to a synthesized result. SICO is a way to watch football with specialized records, highly restrictive football criteria, based on an integral understanding of the game and never losing sight of the important events of each match.

Risks and challenges

The main risks and challenges that we could face if founded will depend on the number of fans who would have access to SICO information. A large number of users would require significant technical capacity so the publication of the information is available to all backers without technical problems, such as system collapse by excess, simultaneous visits.

Regarding the production of information subsequent to each new date played, we are working on the speed of our production capacity. Although the fixture is not a problem between one date and another, fans possible interest in having available performance data of the recently played match could require us higher speed in our production analysis. Since the value of SICO is based on the quality of the information provided, we will never compromise the quality of our information for speed or quantity published. To date, only our most experienced analysts are enable to generate analyses of the Champions League. However, we hope to establish ourselves on kickstarter to raise a continuous analyst improvement process, so they can acquire the standard of reliability that our performance analysis department requires.

For these purposes, we work with our own analyst rating system, where experience (number of analyses performed), the reliability of the results generated (% error of the information captured), and the criteria applied, are the dimensions we use to determine the level of each of our analysts.

In the long-term, We hope to build an international network of analysts who fit the profile we have determined for SICO analysis, through a distance learning system (SICO e-learning course), depending on the result of this campaign on kickstarter, we hope to include a stretch goal. In case of reaching the goal with anticipation, we will include new pledges focused on this goal that will allow us to give a global reach in the long-term for this type of analysis for many football leagues and tournaments around the world, with a high standard of specialization of the information available.

Regarding the priority of production of information for the matches of the Champions League 2013-14, we will incorporate a system of automatic preference feedback on our website so the fans interested are the ones who determine which analysis will be carried out with priority, and subsequently published.
