The performance rankings widget allows users to assess the level of big-5 league players over four different time periods: last week, last month, last three months and last six months. The rankings are computed according to the technical performance achieved in domestic league matches.

The player performance widget allows users to compare the technical profile of players from the five major European leagues. The comparison takes into account the performance of players in six areas of the game: rigour, recovery, distribution, take on, chance creation and shooting. The CIES Football Index measures the general performance of footballers over their last 1,000 domestic league minutes. More information is available in this research note.

This widget allows users to monitor the evolution of the transfer value of players from the big-5 leagues. The widget also allows users to compare transfer value trends between different footballers. Transfer values are estimated according to an algorithm exclusively developed by the CIES Football Observatory academic team. A research note on the methodology used is available here.

Digital Atlas

The Digital Atlas is an exclusive tool developed by the CIES Football Observatory allowing anyone to compare the squad make-up of teams in 31 top division leagues of UEFA member associations. All indicators are weighted according to minutes played by footballers in domestic league matches since the start of the current season. The definitions are presented within the tool.

Transfer value calculator

This calculator allows anyone to estimate the transfer value of big-5 league players. The calculations are undertaken on the basis of an algorithm created from more than 1,500 fee paying transfers which occurred during the previous five seasons. A more sophisticated version (see research note) is used for the ratings module and within the framework of commercial mandates.
