My Game Plan introduction

WIthin My Game Plan, you can build your own analysis by setting rules based on four main categories. These categories and their variables and definitions are explained in the My Game Plan Glossary which can be viewed using the button below.

By setting the rules/queries of your own analysis, you can filter out the events that meet your requirements for further analysis. The results of the analysis will be plotted on the pitch and shown in the table. Clicking on one of the results in both the pitch or the table will open the video + 2D player of that moment in the match.

How to create a new analysis in 10 steps.

  1. Open My Game Plan in the Match Center

  2. Select the desired Game Phase (e.g. Attack -> Defense)

  3. Select the team you want to analyse within this Game Phase

  4. Select the match(es) you want to include in your analysis

  5. Specify an area on the pitch by dragging over the pitch (optional)

  6. Create a New Analysis; the rule builder will open

  7. Name your new analysis

  8. Describe your new analysis

  9. Add one or more conditions

  10. Save your New Analysis

Add Conditions

When creating a new or editing an existing analysis the rule builder will open.

Within this rule builder, you can set or change the rules and conditions for the analysis. After giving a name and description you can select the desired Game Phase (e.g. Attack -> Defense). You can now decide if the outcome you are going to analyse needs to meet all, any or none of the conditions.

example 1. Ball retrieval
Show insights into Attack -> Defense meeting all of the following conditions: Ball retrieval is true.

example 2. Ball retrieval within 10 seconds

Show insights into Attack -> Defense meeting all of the following conditions:

1. Ball retrieval is true.

2. Ball retrieval time is less than 10 seconds.

example 3. Ball retrieval within 10 seconds with high pressure on the ball.

Show insights into Attack -> Defense meeting all of the following conditions:

1. Ball retrieval is true.

2. Ball retrieval time is less than 10 seconds.

3. Pressure on the ball is high compared to the team average.

Benchmarks

With some conditions, you can even set a rule to compare with a team or league benchmark.

In order to evaluate if a score is high or low on a certain variable, some rules include a "compare to" option. This allows you to set rules based on a comparison with the team or league benchmarks. Choose "compared to the team average" if you want to make a comparison with your team only. If you want to compare with the whole league you can choose "compared to the league average". Comparing can be done with the 5-point scale or you can even set your own custom range.

  1. is very high; The value 2 standard deviations above the mean of value of a dataset on a given feature.

  2. is high; The value 1 standard deviation above the mean of value of a dataset on a given feature.

  3. is average; The mean value of a dataset on a given feature.

  4. is low; The value 1 standard deviation below the mean of value of a dataset on a given feature.

  5. is very low; The value 2 standard deviations below the mean of value of a dataset on a given feature.

Video & 2D player

When selecting the row or dot or corresponding dot on the pitch selector the 2D and video will automatically show you the selected moment.

XML export

My Game Plan allows you to export the results of your analysis to your video tool via the XML export. The XML export is compatible with most video analysis tools such as MyVideoAnalyser, SportsCode, Nacsports, and Angles.

After creating your analysis you can select and set the order of the relevant columns with the "CUSTOMIZE COLUMNS" button.

When you are satisfied with the table select "EXPORT TO XML" to download a .zip file with the XML file(s). You will receive one file for each match included in your matches selection on the left.
