Comparisonators’ CEO K. Tarkan Batgun will prepare “Applied Data Scouting Courses” Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 educational moduls which will be presented to all concerned football professionals and candidates. The initiative will involve all field and technical scouts. All data courses prepared by Comparisonator will carry on the PFSA endorsement banner. Tarkan Batgun has been on the global scouting education field for more than 10 years, has been part of Istanbul Halic University Physical Education and Sports Faculty as a lecturer for more than a decade teaching ‘performance analysis’. Batgün also provided education and consultancy to the Turkish Football Federation in live match analysis & scouting courses for 5 years.

The PFSA will provide Comparisonator free trial links to all course participants in all levels of courses.
Selecting the best through Comparisonator Machine Learning Technology
Comparisonator mounted a new machine learning technology inside the platform, allowing users to automatically identify the best players & best coaches & best 11’s in any league in the world. Through the new implementation, The PFSA will generate social media analysis for:
- The Premier League
- League 1
- League 2
The football public will be able to follow “Best of the Bests” in a much reliable fashion through weekly social media posts by the PFSA’s Instagram-twitter and LinkedIn accounts.
Comparisonator CEO Tarkan Batgun said: “I am proud to be part of the PFSA’s fantastic educational system. I have been a lecturer for more than 11 years through universities and federations as a “Performance Analyst”, worked as a match analyst and director of scouting in a fair amount of teams around the world. With this unique initiative, we will aim to teach the fundamental understanding of data to the industry through different levels of the Comparisonator platform. Our level 1 will include our first product Comparisonator Classic where we will use 63 parameters. Our Comparisonator Pro will be utilised in Level 2, which will consist of more than 500 parameters with the inclusion of an index study. Our predictive level will be included lastly using Artificial Intelligence which will have the predictive capability.
On behalf of the PFSA, Adam Hobson said: “We enjoyed using the Comparisonator platform for the last 6 months and decided to move on to an even more exciting level with Comparisonator and with Tarkan Batgun. Our idea is to create awareness of how data is used, selecting the best with top-of-the-line technology. Some people might say field scout is field scout, and they do not need to know about the mathematical part of the scouting process. Well, they are wrong. Technology usage is advancing in the football industry in general. But the best part is that the Comparisonator platform helps the decision-makers understandably so that nobody has to be a mathematical engineer to understand the concept. Therefore we are delighted to advance in our relationship. Make sure to get ready to follow our social media to have a better understanding of how we use numbers to choose the best in our lives.”
