A visualisation of nearly 900,000 passes from 890 soccer matches

Karim Douïeb, co-founder of, has put together some awesome data viz of 882,536 passes from 890 matches. The result, as you’d expect, is a smattering of tiny multi-coloured dots. It’s like looking at a high pollen count during Pride Month (aka this month).

Some of the competitions include:

  • 1999 UEFA Champions League
  • 2018 FA Women’s Super League
  • 2018 FIFA World Cup
  • La Liga (2004–2020)
  • 2003/04 FA Barclaycard Premiership
  • 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup

You can configure the settings to your liking as well so give it a try!
