Our story began in 1998 when Mark Dixon, a university statistics lecturer, decided to set up a one-man-band consultancy, offering statistical modelling and research services. Featuring near the top of a Yellow Pages listing was a priority at the time, and led to Mark opting for 'Advanced Training and Statistical Services,' or ATASS for short. Increasingly, his love of football led him to take on more and more sports-related work, and, by 2001, he and a handful of colleagues were working under the new identity of ATASS Sports.
Fast forward 20 years, and the company now boasts one of the largest commercial statistical research teams in Europe and is a leader in the field of the application of statistical modelling in sports. We have created and continue to develop a collection of statistical and mathematical models that allow sporting outcomes to be predicted with unparalleled accuracy.
ATASS Sports is based in Oxygen House; our award-winning offices in Exeter, we have a range of on-site facilities that are available to everyone in the Oxygen House team. There’s an outdoor all-weather pitch for netball, football and tennis, an on-site gym offering regular fitness classes, a pool table, a table tennis table and a café serving delicious, local, and organic food. We’re constantly organising events and activities to support our charities and to socialise.
