Yilport Samsunspor becomes the first club in Turkey to use SkillCorner Physical and Game Intelligence data.

Yilport Samsunspor, the Süper Lig team from the city of Samsun, becomes the first club in Turkey to benefit from access to SkillCorner’s Physical and Game Intelligence data to support scouting and match analysis processes. 

Yilport Samsunspor has signed a multi-year deal, giving the club access to data from 25 leagues across the world, including in Europe, South America, Asia and the USA. This data will support the club in their recruitment and match analysis processes by helping them to easily identify, benchmark and compare players, based on a number of physical, technical and tactical metrics. 

With access to SkillCorner’s Game Intelligence product, Yilport Samsunspor will also be able to uncover insights into an individual player’s off-ball run profile, their passing execution and their ability to resist pressure while in possession of the ball. 

This contextual data provides valuable information to clubs for identifying potential recruitment targets to suit their playing style, and for analysing the strengths and weaknesses of opposing players and teams. 

Fuat Çapa, Director of Football of Yilport Samsunspor, commented:

“It is important to find new ways to innovate and data has become a big part of how football and players are analysed. I believe that having access to this SkillCorner data will help our team to make evidence-based decisions on player recruitment, and it will help to improve our match analysis processes.”

Pedro Nogueira, Business Development Manager at SkillCorner, said:

“We are delighted to have signed our first club in Turkey and we are excited to see how Yilport Samsunspor benefits from using SkillCorner data. It is exciting for us to see more and more teams in all parts of the world realising the value of our data, and we now have more than 140 football customers in over 30 countries.”
