The new swermetrics metrics for Premier League and Europa League games are set to be introduced in March, with Premier League teams being required to record data from a swr monitor and use it to generate an official scorecard for matches.
“We will see that swr meters have a lot of value,” said Marc Lacey, chief executive of Premier League Digital, a new platform that is developing the metrics.
“There’s a lot going on in the Premier League right now.
We want to get the data right.”

In addition to Premier League games, Premier League clubs will also have to record information on their opposition, including how many times the opposition have been on the field for, how many fouls were committed and how many goals were scored.
“When you’re watching the Premier league, it’s a very competitive league,” Lacey said.
“And the more you see it on TV, the more the game evolves.
So we want to make sure the data is up to date.”
Premier League Digital says Premier League matches will record swr information for 20 Premier League home and away matches a week from March 25 to May 31, with the full details coming later in the month.
