FIFA Player App is a free app from FIFA for Android devices. This app is unique since, unlike any other football data app like Forza Football, All Football or Yora Football, this app is for football players and teams only. This means you must be an authorised user to log into the app.
Why does such a thing exist? It was developed as an opportunity to marry technology into performance checking. As a football player, you can access your performance data and check your stats, such as speed, ball possession and more.
All the stats you could need
If you’re a player, there’s a lot of unbiased, technical information available about your playing performance. Stats include distance covered per speed range, ball possession, passes and crosses, and much more.
Another great feature is that you can check essential moments of your previous match from different camera angles, which helps analyse the action from different points of view.
Analytics that translate into performance
FIFA developed the FIFA Player App with recommendations from FIFPRO, the global representative of pro footballers. As such, many of the features are aimed at helping players improve. Some of these are pretty advanced, too.
For example, a series of algorithms analyses the game more in-depth than ever before, such as line-breaking events, the pressure being applied on you, and much more.
As any professional football player knows, many critiques that fall upon them are subjective. After all, how do you measure exactly how well or poorly you played? How do you know if you made mistakes or if there wasn’t really any other way to perform a particular action on the field? Well, you do it with the FIFA Player App.
This is the first time a professional player can get accurate, unbiased reviews of their performance, not only from typical statistics that anyone can find but also complex, algorithmic calculations beyond mere numbers. If you’re reading this and have a match coming up, don’t forget to grab the app!
