Edinburgh Capitals is pleased to announce the launch of a partnership with globally recognised IT company InsStat.
Edinburgh, 15 July 2017
The agreement will provide world class individual and team statistical information for the coaching staff and fans of the Edinburgh Capitals.
Edinburgh Capitals will be the first ice hockey team in Britain to partner with InStat and we will have a world class statistical tool for the detailed evaluation of hockey games and players. InStat services are widely used in the football industry, having more than 1500 clients all over the word including the Premier League teams Chelsea FC, Liverpool, Manchester City as well as Borussia Dortmund and Celtic FC.
The club enters a new season with high expectations and the team are excited that the detailed information that the coaching staff and players will be able to collate using InStat data will be one of our competitive advantages and will significantly help the coaching staff to enhance team and individual performances
Scott Neil commented, “I am hugely impressed with the detailed data that the Instat services can provide and the information will be ground breaking for clubs, coaches and fans in the UK. The service provides a whole new level of information that greatly exceeds anything I have witnessed in British Ice Hockey and I believe even surpasses what is currently available to some NHL clubs.”
Daniyar Khazimuratov, Head of Hockey at InStat said, “We are interested in working on a new market in the United Kingdom. This is one of the many steps we are planning to take, and we are hoping on mutually beneficial agreement. We are delighted to see the club’s interest too in using our services to help develop the game. We are glad to help and develop the sport to clubs from UK.”
Ilya Buravlev, Managing Director of TSI, the official distributor of InStat in the UK, added, “We are very familiar with the services of InStat, who have been supplying top-notch statistical services for football clubs around the world for 10 years. The company entered into the hockey market recently and we have already witnessed interest from top NHL and KHL clubs. I am sure that other EIHL clubs will want to utilise the services from InStat and we would be happy to contribute to the development of the sport.”
