Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Sports Analytics and Strategy: The model can be used by football teams and coaches to perform advanced sports analytics. For instance, analysts can track player's positions in real time, study their movements and strategies, observe the ball's trajectory, and examine how the goalkeeper is performing, which can offer useful insights to enhance their game strategy.

  2. Video Game Development: Gaming companies can use this model to create more realistic football video games. By learning how different classes behave in a real football match, the model can help generate AI players that perform in a more human-like manner.

  3. Automated Referee Assistance: The model can be implemented to assist referees in making the right decisions by tracking players' and ball's position, spotting potential fouls, offsides or even identifying who touched the ball last before it went out of play.

  4. Sports Broadcast Enhancement: Broadcasting or streaming services can use the model to provide real-time statistics or visual presentations to their viewers, for example the number of successful saves by a goalkeeper, player possession statistics, or real-time player highlighting.

  5. Training and Scouting: Football academies can use this model to track and analyze the performance of players during training. For scouts, the AI can help identify potential talent by providing objective data about each player's performance.
