Import Opta Data

This tutorial is specific to our newest product, Hudl Sportscode. If you’re on Sportscode v11, use these resources instead or upgrade today.


Opta data imports are only avail­able in Sportscode Pro and Elite. Interested in upgrading?

  1. Import your video into Sportscode by cre­at­ing a new video pack­age. Once com­plet­ed, keep the movie pack­age open.

  2. Take the play­head and scrub the kickoff/​start of the match in the Sportscode timeline.

  3. Navigate to File > Import and select Opta Football.

    This will be the same process for Opta Rugby data.

  4. Select the F24 Opta XML file. The asso­ci­at­ed srml file must also be present in the same loca­tion to import the XML data cor­rect­ly. Then click Open.

    Double check that the align with play­head option is select­ed. This will align based on the start/​kickoff code.

  5. Once it has fin­ished import­ing, it will appear in the video package.
