I have always been involved in sports and sports analytics, and attend several sporting events every year (Baseball, Football, Volleyball, Golf, Basketball, Skiing, Bowling).  But when the KC Royals went to the World Series in 2014 and then won it in 2015 I became a fanatic on sports analytics. So, when I had the chance to work with some of the professional teams to help them build their analytics environment I jumped at the opportunity. This presentation will go into the many types of analytics that sports teams today must be involved in.  Everything from crowd control and concessions to player stats and coaching.  I will also tie in some of the work that Telecoms are doing with the professional teams today to promote season ticket sales and partnerships with local businesses.
