CIES Football Observatory online database updated

The CIES Football Observatory is pleased to announce that our online database on the characteristics of big-5 league players and teams has been fully updated to now include the previous five completed seasons. Full access is available here.

Data refers to the indicators of average age, average height, % of club-trained players, % of internationals, % of expatriates and average stay.

More detailed data relating to club level analysis is presented in our annual publications: Annual Review (big-5 leagues) and Demographic Study (31 top division leagues in Europe).

We also kindly remind you that an online tool to assess the transfer value of big-5 league players is available here.
