Project Skellam

Welcome to Project Skellam, a project of mine dedicated to understanding predictions of the performance of sports teams using team-based statistics.

The project is focused currently on the performance of football/soccer teams, though I have plans to look at other sports like AFL (Australian Rules Football), ice hockey (NHL), basketball (NBA) and handball.

I am currently collecting data for the 2023-24 (and 2024) seasons of the following football leagues:

These leagues are chosen primarily because they adopt a sole home-and-away round-robin tournament structure, which allows for the consistency of the results.
