Maths, Modelling, Software and Football what a match.

September 2nd, 2020

Back in 2018 I took to reading “Soccermatics” and really enjoyed, what I would say is a different view on the sport. I say different because its less of the blaa blaa and gives strength to looking at how football problems are being solved on the pitch, with the data to back it up.

More recently reading “Zonal Marking” has really excited the mind, and then watching the “Friends of Tracking” video sessions has been brilliant for the getting the little software skills I have, applying them to football and bringing both books content into even sharper focus.

I recently spotted the chance to participate in the Uppsala University course “Mathematical Modelling of Football” which to me is just an opportunity not to be missed, and with some help of Google Translate and some very late nights I’m going to take on Mathematical Modelling of Football.

Here’s to going back to school !
