In this work, we consider the problem of tracking soccer players during a game by using multiple cameras. The main goal consists in finding the position of the players on the pitch at each instance of time. The occlusion is treated by splitting segmented blobs and the tracking is performed using a graph representation, where nodes correspond to the blobs obtained by image segmentation and edges represent the distance between the blobs.
