Innovating the game
Castrol has taken the football world by storm in recent years, adopting its expertise in data analysis to create the Castrol Index.
This definitive system for rating player performance has proved a huge hit among players, coaches and fans alike. Previously used at the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009 and the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, the Castrol Index uses the latest FIFA tracking technology to capture data on each player, which is then analysed by a team of Castrol Performance Analysts.
Every pass, tackle and move on the field is measured and assessed to see if it has a positive or negative impact on a team's ability to score or concede a goal. The team of Castrol Performance Analysts crunch all the data to award each player a Castrol Index score out of 10 - the stronger the player's performance, the higher their score.
This innovative data takes “armchair coaching” to a whole new level. Now fans and would-be-coaches (as well as professional coaches) have near real-time data available to use to help form their opinions of players.
