YOUR LEARNING IN THE CASvMATCH ANALYST IN PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL” 

Those who go through the CAS recognize the necessity of modern match and tactical analysis in order to optimally prepare their own team for the opponent as well as to analyze their own game. 
The program also underpins the fact that there are clear roles and responsibilities within the club and that this requires the appropriate knowledge and skills, which participants can acquire in this program in a theoretically sound but practical manner. 
The content is taught exclusively by top people with expertise. 

The CAS specifically addresses the requirements, challenges and individual solutions for active and prospective match analysts in professional football. Starting from scientific basics and data analysis in football, the participants deal intensively with video analysis, individual and group tactics as well as scouting and squad planning in the individual modules. 

MODULE 1: FOOTBALL ANALYTICS & TECHNOLOGY 

The Football Analytics & Technology module initially deals with the categorisation of match analysis in the context of training science.

Various training science models and methods are explained and the immediate practical adaptation and feasibility are discussed.

In this topic area, participants learn the difference between quantitative and qualitative match analysis, how to recognise and define key performance indicators in football and how these can be mapped automatically using event and position data. In addition, participants in this module will gain a deep insight into market-relevant hardware and software solutions based on a workflow in match analysis.

Starting with the selection of the optimal equipment, through practical tips on the best possible creation of scouting feeds, various software tools for editing video material, to animations in the moving image, such as perspective changes through camera flights, the participants learn the tools for creating high-quality match analyses.

MODULE 2: QUALITATIVE ANALYSIS & MATCHPLAN TRAINING

In addition to the basics of tactical and technical assessment of match situations in match and tactical analysis, the module focuses on current trends and special features in a national and international context.

Modern game principles and game systems are discussed, which broaden the horizon for abstract but application-orientated game analysis.

Detailed aspects are thematised and discussed on the basis of a structured differentiation in play against and with the ball, in the respective transition phases and in standard situations. In addition to the data-based approach in the first module, the analyses in this module are implemented using the qualitative analysis method.

Based on the technically sound findings from the self-analysis and opponent analysis, the participants learn to identify core elements for the training week in a subsequent step. A key focus of the module is on developing skills in the area of practical training implementation. This is an essential process step in order to be able to transfer the solutions developed in football theory to the players in blueprints and adapt them if necessary.

MODULE 3: HIGH PERFORMANCE WORKFLOWS

In this module, leading analysts with expertise from top national and international clubs provide an in-depth insight into their working methods.

These workflows are enriched by informative field reports, which point out challenges and potentials in the daily work.

Game preparation, including the observation of opponents, live and half-time analyses as well as post-match follow-up are the main topics of the course content. Participants learn how to fundamentally analyse opponents, important aspects of live/half-time analysis and recommendations for evaluating the match plan.

In connection with the content-related work of the analysts, this module also deals with the direct interface between match analysis and squad planning.

Based on sporting needs analyses of the own squad in a team, group and individual tactical/technical context, position-specific parameters are defined which are directly relevant for scouting activities. In addition to the sporting demands on individual players, scouting management is an important part of the training programme. Participants learn, among other things, how to efficiently organise the structure and processes of scouting departments and how to use different software solutions to document and coordinate scouting activities.
