JFA Platform for Football Analysis

Fábio Silva, Pedro Passos, Octavian Postolache

Abstract

The aim of the article was to present a Java Platform for Football Analysis, designed and implemented for football game analysis. The framework presents capability on game analysis based on players coordinates inputs and helping coaches and players to extract information from processed games. The analysis tools to achieve this aim used collective metrics based on player’s positioning on the three team sectors: defensive; middle and; offensive. This allows analyzed player’s collective behaviors before critical situations (e.g., shot on goal). Data revealed that a decrease on interpersonal distances between the defensive sector and the offensive sector affords an opportunity to score.
