As we have shared with our peers and followers, this is the second year that FSI had the pleasure and privilege to participate in the Sports Analytics Workshop organized by the Sports Analytics Group of Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB).
The Sports Analytics Workshop (SAW) is organized by the AUEB Sports Analytics Group, led by Professors Dimitris Karlis and Ioannis Ntzoufras, and it is an annual conference dedicated to all topics where mathematics and sport meet.
This year, our COO, Bill Mexias, and the Ηead of FSI’s Analytics Department, Vasileios Palaskas, had the pleasure of representing FSI once again as speakers, presenting our company’s innovative Fantasy Sports Analytics for athletes’ performance, and a joint project with professor Ntzoufras, a Performance Evaluation of the EURO 2020 Soccer Players based on Fantasy Sports Points.
The original article of this Performance Evaluation of the Euro 2020 footballers was published here, on FSI’s official News blog for the international audience and the iGaming industry, and on one of Greece’s most reputable financial newspapers, OT.gr.
