Event data files

Within the Data Center you will find the Data Sets for each match. We provide all the files available for this match, including event data provided by Opta.

The video is often directly available after each match, therefore the "f7_instant" and "f24_instant" are made available together with the video. These "instant" files are directly available. The f7 and f24 without "instant" are uploaded when the tracking data is available and therefore might have more post match corrections.
