Abstract: As obtaining data gets easier and cheaper with the help of technological achievements, data-based analytics and management have become an essential part of planning and decision making to achieve success in the sports industry. The study finds offensive routes for a team game using high-security data produced with technology. An analysis of a sport's team match was performed using seasonal data. A mathematical model has been developed for this analysis, discussing the effectiveness of the routes the model offers. This article aims to find the safe, efficient route for organising the football on the field. In addition, the study also offers an experimental proposal for this purpose.
