We know the scores, but what players showed the most improvement during the season? On Friday 14th of July, the Most Improved Player Award winners will be announced.

This individual accolade is not based on which player became the most famous, more valuable, scored most goals, etc. Taking into account data collected from games all-around the season, Remiqz’ software analyses players based on their football intelligence. With these algorithms, an evaluation of the players’ performance (EuroPlayerIndex) in the previous seasons is put against the recently ended one. By subtracting the total difference in team performance (EuroClubIndex), it leaves us with the players who stand out over their teammates and are the nominees for the Remiqz MIP Awards.
