For the first time in FIFA World Cup™ history, football fans will be able to monitor the performance of every player from the 32 teams taking part via the Castrol Index. The Castrol Index will use the latest FIFA tracking technology to capture data on each player which will then be analysed by a team of Castrol Performance Analysts.
Developed in conjunction with Castrol global ambassador Arsène Wenger and used at the FIFA Confederations Cup South Africa 2009, the Castrol Index employs the same expertise that Castrol applies to the development of its oils. Using objective analysis and highly advanced technology, 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. As such, it is the definitive system to objectively analyse and rank player performances throughout the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.
The tournament Castrol Index will be published by FIFA.com after each round of matches from 17 June and available at www.fifa.com/castrolindex with match-by-match player scores available within 60 minutes of the final whistle of every game.
