This Special Issue has been promoted by BDSports (Big Data Analytics in Sports), a project developed as part of the activities of the Big & Open Data Innovation Laboratory of the University of Brescia, born in 2016 thanks to the financial support of Fondazione Cariplo and Regione Lombardia.

BDSports is designed to set up a unique collaboration of experts interested in sport analytics both from a scientific and a practical point of view. The goal is to create a network able to facilitate contacts and joint research initiatives. Specifically, the project aims to organise events, carry out Special Issues in scientific journals, share ideas and data in order to publish scientific and non-scientific papers, collaborate with teams in various sports by supplying them analytics and apply for research grants. The data scientists expertise covers a wide range of quantitative tools in the fields of statistical modelling, multivariate data analysis, data mining, algorithmic modelling and machine learning.
