Import Opta Data

This tutorial is specific to Sportscode v11. Have Hudl Sportscode, our newest product? Use these resources.

Opta Data Imports are only available in Sportscode Pro and Elite. Interested in upgrading?

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

  2. Navigate to File > Import > Opta Football.

    This will be the same process for Opta Rugby or Opta Rugby League data.

  3. Select the F24 Opta XML file, click the dropdown and select the previously created movie package. The associated srml file must also be present in the same location to import the XML data correctly.

    Selecting New will open the Opta data without a movie attached to the timeline. Selecting Front will place the XML in the front most movie package timeline.

  4. Click Open.

    Note that this XML data is often based off of the Opta video and not self-captured video (often a TV broadcast). This may result in the instances being out of sync, so use instance adjustments to line this data up.
