EPTS is one of the technical possibilities in football, which has been used extensively for a few years. It is a collective term for technical means that transmit performance data and body values of the individual players. Be it the kilometers run, the fitness and other data, which can be tracked.
At this point, we would like to discuss the textual amendments to clarify the handball law in the Laws of the Game 2020/21 in a more understandable way.
I regularly publish new articles about the evolution of the football sport on this website.
Nevertheless, there are a number of other publications that I would like to highlight.
I am not only an author, but also a speaker. For example, I was also the only speaker from Germany to speak at an international symposium on the effects of Corona on sport.

Through my experience and knowledge I can help you in different ways.
Here you will find an overview of offers, but also individual arrangements are possible.
The penalty kick in football caused a bit of a furore at the World Cup in the summer of 2019. Now, in consequence, there are minimal changes to the penalty kick as well as the kicks from the penalty mark.
The first season in which cards for team officials are shown by the referees is almost over in the most countries of the world. It is time to take stock, but it is not so easy to obtain data on the Internet and from the associations.
Football substitution is an issue I am currently researching. Although the sources speak a clear language. But there have been many exceptions in football substitution, as match reports show.
I know of exceptions in some countries on the European mainland between the First and Second World Wars. The four British associations also knew about this and tried to press FIFA to comply with the rules first. But in the end (1931) they unofficially let the continental European way continue. It had already become a common law there in the few years it had been in existence, and it was much appreciated.
In this post I give an overview of the development of football substitution as far as I can draw/describe it at the moment.
The Laws of the Game are the name of the football rules. The rules of the association football. Since 1858 the rules of Sheffield FC exist, since 1863 the FA Rules. In the beginning the laws contained only a few sentences, in the meantime there are several pages with several illustrations for clarification.
A short journey through time on the development of video replay in football
The history of video replay is also a history of the use of photographic, video and television technology and especially the slow motion.
The birth of modern football in England
Modern football was born in the second half the 19th century. The first seed was scattered in 1850 with an extension of the Factory Acts, the Compromise Act. Among other things it introduced the end of work at 2 pm on Saturdays. This gave factory workers free time for the first time.
Football was a sport that cost relatively little money and some factory owners supported the sporting activities of their workers, provided equipment and sometimes paid for trips to away games. A win-win situation, because this way the owners were sure that their workers did not spend their free time lazing around with excessive alcohol consumption and the soccer-loving workers had an alternative – also for miners and their physically and mentally exhausting work underground. There were also many works clubs at the time, some of which still exist today, such as the Dial Square munitions factory (Arsenal FC), the Thames Iron Works (West Ham) or the Newton Heath LYR Company (Manchester United).
