Abstract

The purpose of this project was to provide a system which could be used as a tool to aid decision making in the Fantasy Premier League football game. This objective was achieved by scraping the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) website of all of the player scoring data and creating an inventive, unique, intuitive and user-friendly dashboard which allowed for easy access to this data. The dashboard also allows users to drill down into the player data to show patterns and trends which are otherwise unavailable from the website.

The overall system comprises of cutting edge technology in the form of the Python programming language, MySQL Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) and Qlikview Business Intelligence software to produce a fully integrated, fully tested and robust platform to allow users the ability to derive actionable insight from the data.
