Based at the Innovation Birmingham Campus, Scout7 is a scouting platform which serves 150 football clubs around the world, including every one of those currently in the Premier League.

Formed in 2001, it was recently acquired by Perform Group and has joined forces with its OptaPro brand.

OptaPro is the professional services arm of Opta, which captures in-depth live data for various sports including football, cricket and rugby, and allows Scout7 to marry its tech platform with industry-leading sports data.
