This FFPlayer index indicates the level of play of a football (USA: soccer) player. Via this index you can independently compare the level of play of players all over the world, in different competitions. To get a number we combine information from different scouts and databases from all over the world and let an algorithm calculate a number between 0 and 100. The higher the number, the higher the level of play of the player.
The index is based on data, video and live scouting. Our data comes from open source databases or pay-per-view databases. The video scouting are done via Instat, Wyscout and regular video platforms. For live scouting we prefer local scouts to reduce the effect which travelling got on the environment and the limitations on travelling due to covid-19. The local scouts are also more experienced in that particular area. They speak the local language, have a good network and know the culture better than an outsider.
The index is a number between 0 and 100:
Overall index, which is an average number for the level of play the player.
Potential index; level of play a player potentially can reach if he develops himself overtime.
To give an example; the Freelance Football Player index of Cristiano Ronaldo currentlyis 87.4. This is one of the highest in world of football. The best rating he ever reached in a game was in his best days of 2018, getting a maximum score of 96.9, against Girona with scoring 4 goals. This is his potential rating; he can still get near this level of play, is he has an outstanding day. But with his body getting older and with less importance to the team play, he will probably not reach it anymore. The third and last index is the form index and for Ronaldo in 2021, he is on 87.3, which is 0.1 lower than his overall level of play, so that is not much of a difference.
