The Football Buzz aggregates 25 UK football news feeds in real time to score our Footballers according to their daily press coverage. These news stories are also weighted according to sentiment analysis – we use a well known sentiment analysis model called AFINN-11. This method allows us to generate a daily winner, that is the trending Footballer who is talked about in the most positive light that day.
The Footballer with the highest score at midnight each day is the daily winner of the Football Buzz – providing the win mechanic for the fixed odds bet. All Futures held in the winning Footballer receive a GBP 0.05 Dividend payout.
Note: Dividend payouts will be credited daily between 00:00 and 01:30 AM (GMT).
In the event of a tied score the buzz winner will be determined by the timestamp of the most recent article published.
The news feeds we monitor are:
Talksport, UEFA, The FA, ESPN, FIFA, Football League, Daily Mail, Daily Star, The Times, Telegraph, Independent, Daily Express, The Guardian, Metro, Daily Mirror, BBC, Football365, Goal.com, Huffington Post and Sky Sports.
