Then you can benefit from automated sports content in a number of ways:
Data can be easily and effectively converted into content formats such as journalistic football match reports. In this showcase, our content automation platform textengine.io automatically processes data from the first German Football League into reports with great text variance.
Retresco’s products and services are targeted toward automatically generating greater reach and visibility as well as increased website traffic, user engagement and more time spent on your website. Individually customisable text automation based on generative AI can be used to create content portfolios on all relevant league statistics and rankings, records, and tables as well as to generate athlete and team profiles, and all of this information is structured specifically for search engines. For your websites and apps, automatically generated sports content can deliver lasting boosts to performance by using data and statistics to create detailed pre- and post-match reports and live sport news. Generative AI helps you significantly reduce the amount of work and resources you invest in this process.
Automated sport reporting with Retresco allows simple, effective scaling of content production. For example, Retresco’s partner Sportplatz Media generates significantly more than 100,000 automated football match reports for its customers every weekend, covering a range of German amateur leagues. The basis for these reports is structured league, game and team data, which editorial teams, associations and clubs collect every week. Every automatically generated report is fact-based, up-to-date and unique.
Copy that is automatically produced by generative AI is indistinguishable from copy written by humans. And Retresco meets the highest standards in this regard. For Google and other search engines, high-quality text is crucial. The quality is of a level that offers real added value and meets the users’ need for information. Human writers are at a disadvantage compared to automatically generated reports, merely due to the sheer scope of reporting required for the enormous number of sporting events that take place every day.
Automated sports content is recommended in all areas involving sport and related news on a broad scale. Structured data is a prerequisite for automated reporting. This raw data is enriched with domain-specific vocabulary and converted into natural-language text, allowing the system to analyse and interpret data sets within milliseconds and generate tailored sports content of consistently high quality.
Classifications and qualified statements are made based on the available data. At the same time, the system can make historical, seasonal or regional connections and precisely categorise sporting events. For example, in league play, the system can automatically distinguish between normal matches, top games, and relegation matches. Upon request, the system can also differentiate between multiple different classes for each game (previously postponed match, derby or a match between two teams at risk of relegation, for example), or it can be tailored for each individual class (such as top games, derby or arch rivals).
Retresco supports automated, individually customisable descriptions and text about athlete and team profiles in a broad range of sports and contexts – in nearly every major European language. Parameters can be set for profiles, careers, the latest sporting events, individual statistics, wins and more, and these parameters can be automated to create high-quality, relevant and up-to-date long-tail content. In football, data might include comprehensive statistics with appearances, minutes played, goals scored or club history. At the same time, the copy may include the following: appearances, minutes played, bookings, goals per game, or assists per game. Personal triumphs can also be added to enrich and visually enhance these profiles, including: champion, cup winner, promotion, top scorer, hat-trick, bicycle kick, individual season data and highlights from a player’s career.
The Retresco team has extensive technological and computer linguistics expertise. For automated sports content in the desired languages, we add and process primary data such as names, frequency, measured data or other personal characteristics. For football, we use data on players, teams, leagues, league ranking or other factors as an extended data pool. Templates are then used to enrich and diversify the reports and alerts with synonyms and text variants – this can initially be managed by the customer, or the customer can commission the Retresco team to do it. Additionally, lexicalisation algorithms ensure that all copy is grammatically correct for every possible constellation of data.
Producing pre- and post-match reports and delivering live reporting on different leagues, sports and regions generally involves major investments of time and personnel. Given the abundance of sporting events and digital broadcast channels, it is nearly impossible for media companies; news outlets; streaming services; providers of esports, games or betting; and comparable providers to deliver consistently high-quality reporting on a regular basis. Automated sports content can be a simple, cost-effective alternative here. SEO-relevant copy that is available in real time significantly reduces the investment required to generate content, as generative AI puts your editorial and structural processes on a new footing. With Retresco’s help, the work of automatically generating sports content for international markets can be handled by just a few content managers.
