The Innovation Series brings together the senior decision makers, thought leaders and innovators who are driving success at the elite level in Talent ID, Human Performance, Medical Care and Data Analysis.

The drive to gain competitive edge in player recruitment, development, performance and welfare is taking football deeper into the outer world of big data, AI, and technology, and increasingly the inner workings of the player as neuroscience, motor learning, genetics and mindfulness become the new agents of change in clubs around the world. 

Every corner is researched: Technical, Tactical, Physical, Psych/Social. Every level covered: men’s, women’s, senior, youth, foundation. All roles involved: analysts, coaches, directors, doctors, managers, nutritionists, physios, psychologists, scientists, scouts.  

With access to, and input from, multiple sources of rich information comes the need to question, evaluate, apply and communicate. To understand what creates successful environments, cultures, relationships and secures buy-in to maximise the potential of the athlete stood in front of you and the team you are part of.

Through a series of high-level presentations and workshops from elite sports scientists, data analysts, technical directors and head coaches, alongside leaders in psychology, academia and sports medicine, Innovation Series events integrate the science and art of football to produce an unmissable event for practitioners who aim to stay ahead of the game and network with those who are.
