Rukometstat Livescore

Rukometstat is a complete solution for monitoring and archiving statistics of a single handball match, but also a complete competition. It’s currently being used in Croatian handball leagues, SEHA (regional Central European handball league), and Hungarian team “HC Csurgoi”. System has, after it was introduced (for Croatian leagues) in 2009. vastly simplified following of competitions to all : news writers (journalists), coaches, players and last but not least – average handball fans.


System has been positively reviewed by (former) daily sports magazine “Sport plus”, and “Sportske novosti”, leading Croatian sports newspaper, who called it “among the best in Europe”.

In-game statistics

Aplikacija 1

Statistika pojedine utakmice se radi tako da jedna osoba, sa eventualnim asistentom koji pomaže pratiti utakmice, unosi statističke akcije u windows aplikaciju. Aplikacija je vrlo jednostavna i intuitivna i omogućava da se unosi obavljaju elegantno i vrlo brzo.

Aplikacija 2

Selected game statistics is kept track off by an operator, possibly assisted by another person, who helps keep track of specific in game events, and those details are entered in a Windows application. Application is extremely simple and intuitive which allows all those actions to be completed swiftly and with ease.

The final output is three different match reports which can be printed out for every single game, made of basic statistics, detailed statistics and list of match events (play by play). Basic statistics is a one page document containing player statistics and score development. Detailed statistics is a four (two pages for each team) page document and apart from having individual player statistics, it also contains detailed graphical report about both team and individual shot placement (where each team has taken shots from, which part of goal has a player shot at most times, etc.)

Few report samples in PDF format: Report 1, Report 2, Report 3

Live score

Live score system allows for keeping track of scores of all active matches, and is easily integrated in team/federation web pages. Apart from current match score, system displays detailed player statistics, match score development – detailing all goal scorers from the start of the match.

Cumulative statistics

As soon as a handball match is finished, cumulative player and team statistic is being populated. This means that at any point in a season, user can view season-to-date individual statistics, but also top season goal scorers, players with highest scoring percentage (position based, shot location based), player with most assists, turnovers, steals, players who got suspended most times and who earned most suspensions/fouls on them.

Apart from player comparison, it’s also possible to do team stats comparison; also position based, teams with highest scoring from 7m penalty shots, teams with most/least turnovers or steals, etc.

Why is Rukometstat an excellent choice?

There’s a number of reasons how Rukometstat can improve a competition or a team:

range of information
– before our system was introduced in Croatian handball leagues, finding out scores of those games even after they had finished was almost rocket-science. Our system enabled all media and handball fans to follow those competitions at a much higher level – match results, but a lot more with it too, is now on user’s palm of the hand
in-game analysis, after game reports
– with our system, coaches and players have an excellent opportunity to analyze their (or their opponent’s) individual or team performance, either after the game or even during the halftime break. It can help them analyze how each defensive formation performed and results it has provided, positives and negatives from each individual, key match moments, responsible individuals, key positions that team has been scoring or conceding goals from, etc.
Tactical pre-game preparation
– match archive and cumulative statistics allows for perfect tactical preparation for both coaches and players. For instance, it’s possible to analyze which player prefers to aim at which parts of a goal, which goalkeeper has a higher percentage of stopping/conceding goals from each field position, finding the biggest strong/weak points for each opponent etc.
Player scouting
– Beforehand, due to defective coverage, it was almost impossible for scouts to get the right idea about players from Croatian leagues. This has all changed since our system was introduced, giving a detailed insight about each player thru their own player pages, which include stats from each season but also detailed match statistics from current season
Facilitated administration
– our application has the possibility of creating a match report in e-form, which can be forwarded with minimum adjustments and modifications to the league/competition organizers, reducing the additional workload to the bare minimum
