I had been hired by a media company for project called Turkish Football History which was developed for Turkish Football Federation (TFF). The goal was calculating different kind of statistics which takes many days for researchers such as international cap counts of players or teams player counts in national teams.

Software database was containing over 6000 match data since TFF was established. All data was manually entered to computer by data entry team which includes some of volunteers.
We have predicted scores of national matches with our statistical datas. Software gaved us many important errors on Federation’s printed publications.

The software was developed on Visual Basic with Access database. Some animations of the software was developed on Flash. Software has automatic data update feature as like as modern browsers.
