Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 4, 2008
Sports Data Hub formally launched the Beta version of its interactive football data website today. Sports Data Hub's interactive, community-based platform features a comprehensive football database accessed by point-and-click visualization tools allowing fans to conduct self-driven analysis of football data like nowhere else on the Internet. The fantasy football tools allow fans to analyze football data the way their minds work - forward, backward, and sideways. As fan's questions change, so do the results; all in real time.
Other fantasy football information websites provide answers and predictions based on proprietary algorithms. SportsDataHub.com is unique as the focus is on the power of transparency and self-driven analysis where fans control the development of their own insights to get their edge and make better decisions. Kevin Goodfellow, founder of Sports Data Hub, sums up this approach by saying, "We believe what we are doing at SportsDataHub.com is opening a new door of high technology tools for the sports consumer to help them get their edge."
Complementing the football data analysis tools is an online community that includes articles, blogs, forums, data feeds, website links, and the Sports Data Hub University where users can learn how to use the website and share fantasy football tips.
Registered users can also customize their SportsDataHub.com experience through the My portion of the website with features like My Feeds and My Links where users can store their own favorite RSS feeds and Website links.
The timing of the SportsDataHub.com beta launch corresponds with the spike in online fantasy football analysis as millions of people prepare for their fantasy league drafts prior to the start of the NFL season. According to a Fantasy Sports Trade Association survey, the Fantasy Sports Industry has grown to an $800 million industry with 29.9 million players. Seventy-five percent of the 29.9 million players play fantasy football.
Sports Data Hub was founded by Kevin Goodfellow who is a data analysis expert and lifelong sports fan. He is a 12 year fantasy football fanatic, so Kevin knows what fantasy football players want in their team performance management. Kevin gathered up a core team of data analysis experts who are also avid sports fans to make Sports Data Hub become a reality.
SportsDataHub.com has received an overwhelmingly positive response from early users during its Alpha phase of the last eight months:
"I really like the graphical interface that you guys have set up with stats. I was playing around with the trend graphs and compared amongst several different players. Your tools can not only help for pre-draft analysis but through the season. The website looks really clean and professional. Last year I was in only two leagues. Because of how much time it was taking to look up stats and keep track of multiple players I didn't do two other leagues that I normally do. I might be back into 4-5 leagues this year when I start using your website."
Adam, multi-league fantasy football player and SportsDataHub.com Alpha user
"I am really excited about the potential of SDH. There is no other site out there that allows you to play with fantasy stats like this."
Sara, The Fantasy Football Librarian
