3 hours or 90 minutes: the benefits of having fans inside and around the stadium
It is a cultural and historical heritage what separates the way in which fans enjoy sports in Europe and the US.
Last Friday, June 1st, the first collaborative research project between the Barça Innovation Hub and the MIT Sports Lab ended. The project was led by two professors from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT, Annette Hoso and Christina Chase, and the work team was made up of a group of eight students from different disciplines (Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration), as well as one from the Barça Innovation Hub’s Knowledge Areas (Sports Analysis and Technology).
Through different data analysis techniques, the research project focused on analyzing and categorizing the different ways in which La Liga teams deploy their attacks.
The last edition of Barça Sports Science Week was held from October 8 to 11 at Camp Nou. More than 1200 visitors and more than 60 speakers from 53 different nationalities attended to learn about the latest advances and case studies in sports science.
