FIFA’s TSG is responsible for the observation of all FIFA tournaments, both junior and senior across the men’s and women’s game. This analysis is then used to support and drive coach and player education and development around the world.

Chris then moved to Asia, where he implemented his performance analysis skillset within football working with both domestic and international football teams. Finally, before starting at FIFA in 2018, he supported the International Olympic Committee (IOC) with bespoke data analytics around injury occurrence hurt analysis within Olympic and world amateur boxing.

What our
participants
are saying

“The Barcelona, Amsterdam and Vienna conferences were all excellent examples of specialized events that bring together academics and elite football practitioners to discuss ideas and concepts, thus it was an easy decision to get involved and chair the event again this year. Although this year is digital, I still expect some top-class discussion given the calibre of the speakers and the cutting-edge topics on offer. This is a must for anyone wanting to develop their advanced knowledge of the science and football area.”
