Short description

The aim with this research project is to analyse goal opportunities and investigate in what way tactical factors influence the outcome.

The project is a collaboration between the Department of Food and Nutrition, and Sports Science at the University of Gothenburg amd Frölunda HC. In icehockey the research concerning goal opportunities and factors that influence the outcome is limited. In other sports like football there are several studies showing that tactical factors do have a large impact in the probability to score.
