Scoring System

Stats Perform Data Provider

We work in collaboration with Stats Perform, an established football data provider in order to precisely track player's actions on the pitch during their live games.

Each action tracked by Stats Perform is then transformed into an amount of points the players earn in Ultimate Champions.

Action Categories

Actions are sorted by categories matching the different type of actions that can happen on a football pitch:

  • Starting

    • Starting points are attributed when the player enters the pitch - it creates a basis for the points system.

  • Club

    • Club points are attributed to a player if the action happens for his club while he is on the pitch. For example a player can get points if his team scores a goal even if that player was not directly involved in scoring the goal.

  • Offensive

    • Offensive points relate to scoring goals and attempting to score goals.

  • Possessive

    • Possessive points are attributed to players for wining or keeping possession of the ball for their team, including successfully passing to a team mate.

  • Defensive

    • Defensive points are attributed to players for intercepting, tackling, clearing their lines etc.

  • Goalkeeping

    • Goalkeeping points are attributed to goal keepers depending on their performance in the game.

  • Errors

    • Errors made by players in a game amount to a reduction of their fantasy score. Errors include fouls, yellow and red cards, etc.

How Action Scores Are Calculated?

Our main goal when defining our scoring system was to insure that all field positions could get an amazing score if they had an amazing performance. Yes, a defensive midfielder deserves to earn a great score too! Therefore, it was important for us to calculate scores with the following logic.

1. An action will grant more or less points depending on the player's position on the field

  • A Goalkeeper will earn more points than a Forward by achieving a clean sheet

  • A Forward will earn more points than a Goalkeeper if his Club scored a goal

2. An action can grant more or less points depending on its real life difficulty and rarity

  • A Forward will earn 5 points when dribbling successfully

  • A Forward will earn 70 points when scoring a goal - since it is considered rarer and more difficult to achieve

3. Some actions can impact the total score negatively if they are considered as โ€œbad actionsโ€

  • E.g.: Missing a pass, missing a cross, missing a penalty, or getting a red card can all negatively impact an player's fantasy score

Scoring Matrix

Below you can find all the modifiers for each action type based on the player's field position (Goalkeeper, Defender / Midfielder / Striker).

Disclaimer: Scoring will be subject to changes in the early stages of the game in order to fine tune the balance for each field position.

The player's final score is calculated by summing up the scores of all their actions in a match.

Captain Performance Bonus

Before registering a team, you're required to select a Captain. Your fantasy team's Captain earns an additional 50% performance bonus on his score. This means that whatever points the captain earns based on their performance in a match, an additional 50% will be added to their total score, boosting your team's overall score significantly.

For example, if your captain scores 100 points in a match, they will receive an additional 50 points, making their total contribution 150 points.
