Abstract: In this paper, we apply for the first time the connected network Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) model to assess the on-field performance of football clubs during a league season. Specifically, we separately measure football clubs’ technical efficiency in offense, defense, and points’ earning by using their: (i) attacking and defending moves as the inputs of offense and defense, respectively; (ii) goals scored and goals conceded as the intermediate measures that simultaneously serve as both: (a) the single outputs of offense and defense, respectively; and (b) the inputs of the points’ earning process; (iii) points earned as the single output of the points’ earning process. To illustrate the usefulness of our theoretical framework, we make use of aggregate match statistics from the 2013-2014 Greek premier football league.
