    Football Passing Network

    James Garcia

      Hi Community,

      I am trying to build a Football Passing Network in order to show the location of the players on the pitch and how many passes each one of them made between each player.

      I tried to do it based on airplain routes but I can't get the lines to appear.

      I have two Excel sheets that I joined together, one with the player name and location and one with a passing matrix and unique identifier which I created as calculation field.

      Attached it the .twbx and the excel that I a using and also a screenshot of what my goal is.

      I used Tableau version: 2018.3


      Thanks in advance

          Hi James,


          I love this stuff! The issue you're having is related to data structure:



          The sort of structure you want is as shown above, where there are two lines per pass, to assign each node


          Does this make sense?

            Thanks Ravi Mistry for the quick response.

            I am able now to see lines, however, this is not exactly what I want to achieve as I want to see how many time player X passes to Player Y and the other way around.

            In this solution, I have only one line and not two.

            As I will have 15+ players I can't use a pie chart to show it similar to the example you shared with me.

            Any idea how the best to show it?
