Posted: 16 September 2008 Time: 16:21
Super-agent Pini Zahavi on Monday joined forces with IMScouting.com to launch the world’s largest ever football database.
IMScouting.com is a ground-breaking and unique online database for thousands of football professionals and millions of fans, providing an unprecedented level of detailed information on almost every football player in the world.
The website is an invaluable new resource for scouts, managers, coaches and agents looking to get an edge over their rivals in finding the ”next big thing” in football.
Constantly updated by a wide network of some of the world’s leading football experts and journalists, the website is also a must for fans looking for all the latest insider news, reports and stats from the “Beautiful Game.”
IMScouting.com has been developed with the support and guidance of Pini Zahavi, the super-agent behind many of the biggest deals in football. Zahavi has shared his expert insider knowledge of the game to help create a website that delivers exclusive breaking stories and high quality reporting, as well as unique player data from all around the world.
Mr Zahavi said: “IMScouting.com is a truly unique resource for professionals in the world of football looking to be ahead of the curve in an increasingly global and competitive game. The website has detailed and exclusive information on nearly every professional footballer across the globe, with everything from their agent’s contact details to a full history of their career injuries. That information is invaluable.”
Sourcing and delivering all the latest stories, transfer gossip and football business news from all of the major leagues around Europe, South America and Asia, IMScouting.com is also the first of its kind to deliver comprehensive player updates from leagues in African countries such as Ghana, Egypt and South Africa.
“The website is such an exciting and unique concept because it is a resource for both those at the very top of the game and for all football fans,” said Zahavi.
“I know for a fact that there are some very high profile European clubs already using the system, and that the website played an important role in at least four major transfers on deadline day earlier this month!”
Constantly updated, IMScouting.com blends various functions together to deliver a platform for both football professionals and supporters. These functions include:
- Updated player performance monitors
- Current and past injuries
- Full player dossier including video highlights, estimated salary and market value
- A daily global football news service
- Special scouting reports on the world’s in-form up and coming players, including a weekly “Player to Watch” section
With a powerful and easy to use search engine, IMScouting.com delivers innovative analytical tools including:
- Detailed graphical displays charting player performance
- A side-by-side comparison interface
- A "Briefcase" tool to file and compare players from previous assessment
Dvir Ben-Aroya, CEO of IMScouting.com said: “We are extremely excited by today’s launch. The sheer scale of this project is unprecedented. What makes this website unique is that for the first time, there is one database that catalogues information on almost every professional footballer in the world. We believe IMScouting.com will change the dynamics of the global football transfer market, and will transform the way fans are informed of all the latest inside stories from the world of football.”
Ben-Aroya continued: “The website will constantly be evolving as our coverage expands to incorporate information on youth team and academy players around the world. This is exciting new territory!”
Manchester United and England star Rio Ferdinand added: “IMScouting.com is an extraordinary database. It is indispensable to anyone looking for a crucial insight into the global game.”
