Sportstar Influencer, a new social index for sports players, created by the talented team at Filter Digital, launched its first data set back in May. With stats covering the Barclays Premier League, World Cup, Wimbledon and even Love Island.


The platform has continued to develop and receive coverage from across industry and national press. Here is just a quick snippet of the coverage so far.

Digital Sports is the leading online channel for the sports industry. We were therefore thrilled that Chris McMullan, sports journalist and editor of Digital Sport, used data from Sportstar Influencer to write a fantastic article on how England players fell behind world cup rivals on social media.


The Sun

The Sun used our data to identify the 50 most influential Premier League signings of this summer’s transfer window. Using data sets and research from Sportstar Influencer, they could show that Chelsea’s loanee Mateo Kovacic was the most influential of them all when it came to things like fan interaction and commercial opportunities.
