Abstract

Field hockey is a growing sport and even though more than 1 billionpeople play or watch the sport, there is little statistical research on thesport. In this paper we will use two statistical models to predict the Eu-rohockey Championship that will take place in Antwerp in August 2019.The first model that is used is the Bradley-Terry model which is a knownmodel used for predicting sports outcomes. The second model is a Gen-eralized Linear Model where more variables are taken into account suchas the shape of the teams and home advantage. These models can beextended for predicting future field hockey events.
