Indicators

Our indicators are calculated using a database that the CIES Football Observatory team has carefully developed since 2005. The sample is composed of footballers who have participated in championship matches during the season of reference.

The online tool here below allows you to depict interactively six indicators for the five last big-5 league seasons. The option "comparison" offers analysis by league, sporting level, age of players, position and geographical origin.
The option "trend" presents the change in each indicator, season by season.
