The Australian chapter of this global summit returns to Melbourne in 2017. Over the years, this summit has championed the use of analytics across the sporting landscape, providing a platform to bring like-minded people together to share industry success and identify analytics innovation.
The Sports Analytics Innovation Summit brings together experts from leagues, teams and governing bodies across Australia and Asia, to share insight and spark discussion on how data analytics can drive, shape and transform the future of sports.
Secretly or openly, sports organisations around the world are increasingly getting on board with analytics. Whether it's to identify an edge in player performance or finding one away from the field of play, using data to inform decisions is becoming essential.
The Sports Analytics Innovation Summit is the perfect opportunity to share insight and best practices with leaders and experts from across the field in an interactive and open environment.

Ask any Victorian and they’ll be aware of the Melbourne Cricket Ground’s status as the home of sport. But it is also steeped in a rich history; established in 1853, less than 20 years after the founding of Melbourne, it is often described as the beating heart of this fantastic city. It has been the home of Australian football since 1859, and was the birthplace of Test cricket in 1877 and one-day international cricket in 1971.
