The seminars will typically be once a month on Wednesdays 3pm or Friday 2pm at our training ground at Årsta throughout the year.
Participation is by application only and limited to 15 external participants. We are looking for people with a background in maths, statistics, coaching and/or IT who want to use their skills in football analytics. Hammarby fans will be given priority, but we are also looking to have a diversity of backgrounds involved.
To apply, simply send an email to Write roughly 250 words about your background and why you would like to be involved. Applications can be sent in at anytime, but we will form an initial group by the end of February 2020.
