Big-5 Data

The CIES Football Observatory has worked in partnership with I@D Informatique to develop a unique mapping tool to visualise the association of origin for expatriate players in the big-5 leagues.

Moreover, the interactive table below allows you to depict six indicators for the last five completed big-5 league seasons. The figures are weighted according to minutes played by each footballer fielded. The data presented is thus based on averages measured "on the pitch".

The option comparison offers analysis by league, ranking, age of players, position and origin. The option trend presents the change in each indicator, season by season.
