Match analytics added to JoomSport

As a response for large number of request from our clients we have added analytics for future matches in JoomSport. This applies both for WordPress sport plugin (ver. 5.0) and Joomla extension (ver. 5.5) released.

The main objective of the new analytics offered is to help predicting on match outcome.

Before we start the development we have analyzed a lot of sports sites and analytics variations. Many of them offer a large amount of numbers but poorly squeezed data and we didn't want the same. We wanted to avoid overloading you with the useless numbers. Instead we have carefully selected the most important figures that might correlate with upcoming match outcome.

The new data blocks offered includes the three sections added to future JoomSport matches (fixtures status).

Season analytics

Season win / draw / lost numbers and last 5 matches blocks are offered with "All season games" OR "Home / away games" filter depending on where is the selected team plays. "Position" chart is only displayed for the seasons that are without knockouts or playoffs matchdays.

Averages analytics

For player / match events averages it is possible to set what kind of events do you need to display. Scores averages analytics offers you the three numbers for each team: scored, conceded and total. Again, season total and home / away filter is offered for both blocks.

Head to head analytics

Two blocks to analyze previous head to head game between opponents. All leagues and seasons are included. 10 games stats included inside the block.

See how the functionality looks like on our demo.

Thank you VERY much to all the bakers who supported us financially with this particular feature development! It would be impossible to deliver all that functionality without you. Special thx to Yannis (Sentragoal), Roberto (ESM), Aldi (Universfootball), Juan Luis (Quesomecanico)!
