A World Cup in Charts

Football match statistics and country head-to-head on environmental data for the World Cup (2018)


Beautiful graphs of a beautiful game: Meta observations about the game(s) we play and the world we live in.

Match-related event and data visualizations such as pass maps, pass network graphs, shot maps, touch maps, the genesis of goals and many more are intertwined with head-to-head environmental country infos such as greenhouse temperature anomalies, greenhouse gas emissions, ecological footprint or meat consumption.

Beauty and fun, but not only. Not without urgency: At least if you have kids, I would seriously consider: They might prefer a livable place where they can play football outside to the money you stash away by destroying it!

Expect more charts and figures - fun or serious - to come up as long as the game is running and world cup proceeds.
