Labelled football (soccer) data is hard to acquire and it usually needs humans to annotate the match events. This process makes it more expensive to be obtained by smaller clubs. UnFOOT (Unsupervised Football Analytics Tool) combines data mining techniques and basic statistics to measure the performance of players and teams from positional data. The capabilities of the tool involve preprocessing the match data, extraction of features, visualization of player and team performance. It also has built-in data mining techniques, such as association rule mining and subgroup discovery.
