How Data Science In Sports Supporting The Industry

Data science and sports go completely hand in hand. Players, coaches, team managers, fans and everyone involved in sport are a part of sports analytics to analyze and make strategies to win a game.

Data science in sports analytics generates important statistical data that are used to boost the competition and engage sports fans.

Sports statisticians (or analysts) will do the data science work, and build mathematics models for predictive analysis such as machine learning and AI. The main difference is in the type of data they are working in. Consequently, sports statisticians are also data scientists who work in the sports industry.
