Sports analytics

Tableau allows anyone to quickly see, understand, and share valuable insights.

The path to victory starts with data

It’s no secret that professional athletics and sports teams are a huge global industry—but there’s more to winning than training hard and putting points on the board. Winning starts with data; from player statistics, media contracts, licensing deals, ticketing and merchandising, and even how many beats per minute a player’s heart might pump on game day.

Tableau allows you to quickly and easily analyze your data. You can connect to almost any data and visualize it by dragging and dropping—no scripting required. Start answering questions as fast as you can think of them with Tableau.
