Today, the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and Sportradar put pen to paper on a partnership that will see Sportradar provide its Federation Management Platform (FMP), a ground-breaking tool kit of data-related products and services, to FAM for a period of three years.
The Federation Management Platform is made up of three core services:
• The FMP Federation Management Tool: this will give FAM the ability to configure, plan and manage leagues, tournaments, schedules and venues. On top of this, the tool will facilitate management of competition and match-related personnel, including players and referees but also any external party accreditation.
• The FMP Data Collection Tool: this will allow FAM to administer its leagues from desktops and mobile devices. FAM will then be able to automatically generate extensive tables, statistics and top lists as well as comprehensive and automated match commentary including post-match editing and offline data collection.
• The FMP Data Visualisation and Commercialisation Tool: FAM will be able to distribute all game data and coverage across a plethora of widget solutions, while adding social media and CRM opportunities to increase and tailor the engagement properties of that data.
FAM will now be able to electronically register all youth players in Malaysia and have a current database of all players across the country. Scores and statistics from all matches including lower league and youth tournaments can be saved in a database and archived.
Competition schedules, club registration and referee appointments will all be done electronically. Scores, match reports, press releases and accreditation will be available to media online.
