America Futebol Clube and Driblab are pleased to announce a partnership agreement to integrate advanced statistics into America Futebol Clube’s scouting and sporting management department, in order to make the club’s talent search and detection processes more flexible through the extensive database and functionalities developed by Driblab.
America Futebol Clube, a historic club from Minas Gerais region that this season participated in the Copa Libertadores 2022 after its great season in the Brasileirão 2021, will have access to driblabPRO, the platform with more than 200.000 players and more than 180 competitions automated by Driblab, with which they will be able to analyse performance and find players in a completely personalised way and adapted to the needs of America Futebol Clube thanks to the multitude of tools, alerts and applications present in driblabPRO, as well as its customised consultancy services already enjoyed by many clubs around the world.
Having the support of companies that use data to complement analysis is an increasingly important step for the growth and competitiveness of clubs. Football as an industry demands to be as prepared as possible to anticipate competitors, and big data allows the scouting department and sporting management to focus on more specific functions.
For Fred Cascardo, America’s Football Director, the partnership will yield important results to America and will facilitate the work of professionals in the sector. “The innovation in market analysis, performance and management processes is yet another example of how America has modernized its internal structure. The partnership with Driblab reinforces the Club’s focus on being increasingly innovative and inserted in the best available, in addition to making the work with data more assertive for decision-making”.
Salvador Carmona, CEO of Driblab, valued the agreement with America Futebol Clube: “Our presence in important places like Brazil is strengthened with the agreement with America, which we will support in all aspects of player analysis and scouting. It is a great opportunity to help a club that also continues to grow within the demands of competing in the Brasileirão”.
