With pre-season now in full sway up and down the country, we are delighted to announce that Scout7 has become the official Professional Services Partner of the National League, which will result in member clubs and their supporters benefitting from new online video content throughout the 2017/18 season.
Working in conjunction with Pitchero, the League’s Digital Media Partner, this partnership will see our own in-house analytics team produce three-minute highlight packages for every game played in the National League, National League North and National League South, for use by all member clubs across their digital platforms, including their official websites and social channels.
In addition, every match across all three divisions will be available for all member clubs to watch online, or as a download, from an online central video archive hosted by us.
Each member club will also receive a login to their own private and secure Scout7 Pro.tv platform, where they will be able to use the National League footage to do their own online video analysis.
For me personally, this agreement is a watershed moment for English Non-League football, as this is the first time that official content from all three divisions will be available digitally.
In addition, the highlights that we will make available to member clubs within Pro.tv will allow each team’s management and coaching staff to quickly view back all key incidents from their own matches and those of their upcoming opposition, including set-pieces.
This should help clubs optimise their opposition analysis processes at each stage of the season, mirroring workflows already in place at leading clubs around Europe.
So from Blyth Spartans in the North, down to Whitehawk in the South, we would like to welcome all 68 National League members into the Scout7 family. We look forward to working closely with each one of you in the months ahead!
