  • 5. OPTA PLAYER RATINGS

    Opta Player Ratings are a score or mark out of 100 that indicates how well a football player has played in a particular fixture. The higher the score, the better the player played. Opta Player Ratings range from 20 to 100, with 60 being the rating for anaverage performance.


    Opta Player Ratings are designed to score a football player's performance using six (6) subcomponents, and specific metrics within each subcomponent, as follows:


    • Shooting: This subcomponent prizes efficiency. Shot location and type is taken into account by proxy (e.g. outside/inside the box as opposed to exact x,y location), and players are given credit for the outcomes of their shots relative to the difficulty as measured by these proxies. Though a player shooting many times will positively affect their attacking subcomponent score, if these shots are constantly missing the target, they may have an unflattering shooting subcomponent score. The metrics for this subcomponent are goals and saved, blocked and missed shot counts for:
      • penalty kicks;
      • free-kicks;
      • headers;
      • inside the box shots; and
      • outside the box shots.
    • Passing: This subcomponent assesses a player's efficiency in circulating the ball within their team while in possession. Location is split here by sections of the pitch and goalkeepers are credited for the accuracy of their throws. The metrics for this subcomponent are successful and unsuccessful counts of:
      • passes in final, middle and defensive third of the pitch;
      • crosses for set pieces and open play; and
      • keeper throws.
    • Possession: This subcomponent attempts to measure a player's effect on their team's ability to retain and solidify possession. The metrics for this subcomponent are:
      • foul counts for and against;
      • aerials and take-ons won and lost;
      • dispossession count;
      • possession gained counts in final, middle and defensive thirds of the pitch; and
      • total offside and yellow and red cards.
    • Defending: his subcomponent incorporates two (2) elements: (i) an active defensive element, which uses stats on defensive actions directly accumulated by the player such as tackles, interceptions, errors and own goals; and (ii) a passive defensive element, which considers the attacking output of the other team as a whole relative to how much that team possessed the ball in the player's defensive third, and apportions credit to a player for their role in preventing or allowing this attacking output. The metrics for this subcomponent are counts of:
      • own goals;
      • oerrors leading to shots;
      • oerrors leading to goals;
      • otackles;
      • ochallenges lost;
      • ointerceptions;
      • oclearances;
      • opasses, shots and crosses blocked; and
      • openalties conceded.
    • Attacking: This subcomponent attempts to quantify how much a player is contributing to their team's offensive output. Here, volume is more important than efficiency. More contributions to attacking statistics such as assists, shots and crosses from open play affect this subcomponent. The metrics for this subcomponent are totals for:
      • fastbreaks;
      • fouled in final third of the pitch;
      • dribbles;
      • goal assists;
      • shot assists;
      • big chances created;
      • shots inside the box;
      • shots outside the box;
      • in play crosses; and
      • through balls.
    • Goalkeeping: This is the main (though not complete) subcomponent for evaluating a goalkeeper's performance. The metrics for this subcomponent are totals for:
      • in play shots saved inside the box;
      • in play goals conceded inside the box;
      • in play shots saved outside the box;
      • in play goals conceded outside the box;
      • penalties saved;
      • penalties conceded;
      • crosses claimed;
      • crosses not claimed;
      • successful keeper sweeps; and
      • unsuccessful keeper sweeps,

    (each of the above, a Subcomponent).


    Each Subcomponent metric has a corresponding coefficient that is used to weight the importance of that metric to the overall Subcomponent score. These metrics are further weighted by player position (see below), ensuring scores are distributed fairly across each of the Subcomponents, regardless of the football player's position.


    Each Subcomponent score is weighted to give a rating depending on the player's position as follows:

    • Goalkeeper: Shooting – 0%; Passing – 5%; Possession – 10%; Defending – 5%; Attacking – 0%; and Goalkeeping – 80%
    • Central Defender: Shooting – 10%; Passing – 15%; Possession – 20%; Defending – 45%; Attacking – 10%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Defender*: Shooting – 10%; Passing – 15%; Possession – 20%; Defending – 45%; Attacking – 10%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Wide Defender (i.e., Fullback or Wingback):Shooting – 10%; Passing – 15%; Possession – 20%; Defending – 40%; Attacking – 15%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Defensive Midfielder: Shooting – 15%; Passing – 30%; Possession – 20%; Defending – 20%; Attacking – 15%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Central Midfielder: Shooting – 15%; Passing – 30%; Possession – 20%; Defending – 15%; Attacking – 20%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Midfielder*: Shooting – 20%; Passing – 25%; Possession – 20%; Defending – 15%; Attacking – 20%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Wide Midfielder: Shooting – 20%; Passing – 20%; Possession –20%; Defending – 10%; Attacking – 30%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Attacking Midfielder: Shooting – 20%; Passing – 25%; Possession – 20%; Defending – 10%; Attacking – 25%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Wide Forward: Shooting – 40%; Passing – 15%; Possession – 10%; Defending – 5%; Attacking – 30%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Forward*: Shooting – 40%; Passing – 10%; Possession – 15%; Defending – 5%; Attacking – 30%; and Goalkeeping – 0%
    • Center Forward: Shooting – 45%; Passing – 10%; Possession – 10%; Defending – 5%; Attacking – 30%; and Goalkeeping – 0%

    (together, the Weighting)


    The above positions are identified based on a player's starting position within the listed formation of a given fixture, except for the starred positions (those marked with *), which are present when a detailed position is unavailable for a given player, which is usually when a player makes an appearance as a substitute.


    As set out above, for each fixture, each player can receive a maximum score of 100 which is distributed between six (6) Subcomponents and given the relevant Weighting. By way of example, a central defender can receive up to a maximum score of:

    • 10 for shooting (10% of 100);
    • 15 for passing (15% of 100);
    • 20 for possession (20% of 100);
    • 45 for defending (45% of 100);
    • 10 for attacking (10% of 100); and
    • 0 for goalkeeping (0% of 100),

    Stats Perform will assess each player based on the Subcomponents relevant to them, after each fixture, and award each player a score out of 100 based on the Weighting given to each Subcomponent for each individual player. This score is the Opta Player Rating.


  • 6. LEADERBOARD & SCORING

    Opta Five is one (1) of two (2) contests that contribute to leaderboards (with the other contest being Opta Max). Each contest has its own leaderboard, but any Entrant with a score from either contest will appear on the combined leaderboard for both contests (theCombined Leaderboard).


    The Combined Leaderboard consists of five (5) divisions, with division one (1) being the highest and division five (5) being the lowest. All Entrants will begin the Contest in division five (5). Entrants in division five (5) to division two (2) will be assorted into separate 100 Entrant leaderboards, and division one (1) will include all Entrants who have been promoted from division two (2). Entrants will be promoted or relegated between divisions by being in the top or bottom 25% of Entrants, respectively, within their respective leaderboard. There is no relegation from division five (5) or promotion from division one (1) of the Combined Leaderboard. Promotion and relegation will take place after every seven (7) Game Weeks.


    Entrants receive a score from Opta Five based on their predictions. The score for incorrectly predicting a player to exceed their Predicted Opta Player Rating is equal to the predicted player's Opta Player Rating for that fixture. For example, if an Entrant predicts a player to exceed a Predicted Opta Player Rating of 41, but the predicted player only achieved an Opta Plyer Rating of 40 for the fixture, the Entrant will earn 40 points. The score for correctly predicting a player to exceed their Predicted Opta Player Rating is double the predicted player's Opta Player Rating for that fixture. For example, if an Entrant predicts a player to exceed a Predicted Opta Player Rating of 94, and the predicted player achieves an Opta Player Rating of 95 for the fixture, the Entrant will earn 190 points. For Opta Max scoring details, please refer to the Opta Max official rules here.


    During the last two (2) Game Weeks of the Contest, all scores from Opta Five will be worth double the amounts described above.


  • 7. PLAYER CARDS & STICKERBOOKS

    If you select a player that achieves an Opta Player Rating above their Predicted Opta Player Rating, you will be awarded a digital player card (Digital Player Card). You can only earn one (1) version of a Digital Player Card from either Opta Five or Opta Max; however, you can earn multiple Digital Player Cards from the same team and store them in your user profile. If you earn an Opta Five Digital Player Card, you cannot earn an Opta Max Digital Player Card for the same player.


  • 8. THE PRIZE

    The prize for correctly identifying a player awarded a higher Opta Player Rating than their Predicted Opta Player Rating in all five (5) fixtures of a Game Week will be $500 US. If two (2) or more Entrants correctly predict a player to exceed their Predicted Opta Player Rating in all five (5) fixtures of a Game Week, the prize pot will be shared equally between all potential winners. If there are no winners for a particular Game Week, the $500 US prize will be carried over to the next Game Week, and so on for each of the remaining Game Weeks.


    Whichever Entrant holds position number one (1) in division one (1) of the Combined Leaderboard at the end of the Contest Period will be awarded a prize of $10,000 US, position two (2) in division one (1) will be awarded $1,000 US, position three (3) in division one (1) will be awarded $500 US, position four (4) in division one (1) will be awarded $300 US and position five (5) in division one (1) will be awarded $200 US. In the event two (2) or more Entrants have the same whole number score, the score will encompass the first decimal point and, in the event two (2) or more Entrants have the same whole number and first decimal point score, the score will encompass the second decimal point, and so on considering additional decimal points until the tie is broken.


    There will be two (2) prizes associated with collection of Opta Five and Opta Max Digital Player Cards:

    • A prize for collecting Digital Player Cards across the widest range of clubs in the Premier League & WSL by the end of the Contest Period: $5,000 US.
      • Where the number of clubs represented across the collected Digital Player Cards is tied, the prize will go to the Entrant with the most Digital Player Cards during the Contest Period.
        • If the number of Digital Player Cards is also tied, the prize will go to the Entrant with the highest cumulative score for all their Digital Player Cards. In the event two (2) or more Entrants have the same whole number cumulative score, the cumulative score will encompass the first decimal point and, in the event two (2) or more Entrants have the same whole number and first decimal point cumulative score, the cumulative score will encompass the second decimal point, and so on considering additional decimal points until the tie is broken.
    • A prize for collecting Digital Player Cards representing all eleven (11) positions in a formation first: $5,000 US.
      • Where the number of Game Weeks to populate a formation is tied, the prize will go to the Entrant with the highest number of clubs represented by the players in their formation.
        • If that is tied, then the prize will go to the Entrant with the highest cumulative score of the Digital Player Cards in their formation. In the event two (2) or more Entrants have the same whole number cumulative score, the cumulative score will encompass the first decimal point and, in the event two (2) or more Entrants have the same whole number and first decimal point cumulative score, the cumulative score will encompass the second decimal point, and so on considering additional decimal points until the tie is broken.
