Home advantage (HA) in football, soccer is well documented in the literature; however, the explanation for such phenomenon is yet to be completed, as this paper demonstrates that it is possible to overcome such disadvantage through managerial planning and intervention (tactics), an effect so far absent in the literature. To accomplish that, this study develops an integrative theoretical model of team performance to explain HA based on prior literature, pushing its limits to unfold the manager…

The second leg home advantage: Evidence from European football cup competitions
Examination of data from three different European Cup football competitions spanning 51 years shows that the second leg home advantage is a real phenomenon and appears to have decreased significantly over the past decade.
Worldwide regional variations in home advantage in association football
Estimates of home advantage are calculated for the domestic leagues of all countries of Europe and South America, as well as a selection of countries from other continents, finding that home advantage is not unusually high or low in any of the countries fromother continents.
Home ground advantage of individual clubs in English soccer
It is shown that for a balanced competition this is equivalent to a simple calculator method using only data from the final ladder and a paired home advantage is defined and shown to be linearly related to the distance between club grounds.

In search of invariant athletic behaviour in sport: an example from championship squash match-play.
The finding that the champion is more consistent if his forehand and backhand shot responses to a preceding shot are analysed separately, shows that the level of analytic detail is an important consideration if the derived information from sport analysis is to prepare an athlete reliably for future sport competition.
