Kinetic Energy Analysis for Soccer Players and Soccer Matches

Zengyuan YUE, Holger Broich, Florian Seifriz, Joachim Mester

Abstract


A simple and practical semi-empirical formula for the calculation of the Mean Specific Kinetic Energy (MSKE) of a soccer player over a match is developed based on the statistical analysis of the detailed records of the time courses of locations of all players for a single match. This formula is further supported by additional tests and some theoretical analysis. The formula is then applied to five matches. This formula can be used not only to compare different players, but also to compare different teams, to see how active and how energetic they are during a match. This formula can also be used to test whether there is a significant effect of a training program on the kinetic energy of players of a team. Key Words: Soccer; Energy; Statistics; Training
