Episode 32 - A Closer Look into "Pitch Control‪"‬ The Football Fanalytics Podcast

    • Soccer

It’s been a strange week for football, but you will be pleased to know that this episode does not centre on The European Super League!

In Episode 32, we explore an advanced analytical model called Pitch Control. Essentially, this model looks to quantify the creation of space on the pitch and see how players can maximise this space on or off the ball, and in or out of possession.

Importantly, we discuss why this model is important, how it can be applied, and what makes it such a useful tool within football clubs. Let us know what you think!
