This study looks at the relationship between overall Performance Science Index (PSI) scores and market value, as well as PSI scores and Elo ranking, for a selection of representative clubs.
You will also find in this study:
- Why the Performance Science Index (PSI) is a useful tool to assess a club’s current performance science practices and allows practitioners to understand where gaps may exist in their typical data workflow, collection, storage, and data analysis.
- The lack of association between PSI scores and economical, performance and cultural contexts reflects practitioners’ vision on the value of sport science – which may (or may not) be associated with success on the pitch.
- Examining the association between PSI scores and other important aspects of the game, such as players availability and health, or even injury burden would provide another dimension to the importance of the PSI and should be the focus of future investigations.
