Abstract

‘Big data’ is a term that describes the large volume of both structured and unstructured data that can be collected. However, it is not the amount of data that matters; it is what organisations and individuals do with the data that matters. Big data can be analysed for insights that lead to better decisions, strategy, education, marketing and planning for businesses, organisations, teams and individuals. This chapter examines the use and potential misuse of data in sports and sporting organisations. It also considers how the sport coach can use this data for their benefit.
