Generate a ggplot2 instance containing a soccer pitch for a specified league

Usage

geom_soccer(
  league,
  display_range = "full",
  pitch_updates = list(),
  color_updates = list(),
  rotation = 0,
  x_trans = 0,
  y_trans = 0,
  pitch_units = NULL,
  xlims = NULL,
  ylims = NULL
)

Arguments

league

The league for which to draw the surface. This is case-insensitive

display_range

A case-insensitive string indicating the display range to use for the plot. The default is "full", which will be returned when either an invalid or no value is passed to the function.

The possible display ranges are:

"full"

The full pitch. This is the default

"offense"

The TV-right half of the pitch

"offence"

The TV-right half of the pitch

"offensivehalfpitch"

The TV-right half of the pitch

"offensive_half_pitch"

The TV-right half of the pitch

"offensive half pitch"

The TV-right half of the pitch

"defense"

The TV-left half of the pitch

"defence"

The TV-left half of the pitch

"defensivehalfpitch"

The TV-left half of the pitch

"defensive_half_pitch"

The TV-left half of the pitch

"defensive half pitch"

The TV-left half of the pitch

pitch_updates

A list of updates to the pitch's parameters. These will overwrite the parameters of the league

color_updates

A list of updates to the pitch's default colors, which are set by soccer_features_set_colors()

rotation

An angle, given in degrees, through which the plot should be rotated

x_trans

The amount that the x coordinates are to be shifted. By convention, the +x axis extends from the center of the pitch towards the right-hand goal when viewing the pitch in TV View

y_trans

The amount that the y coordinates are to be shifted. By convention, the +y axis extends from the center of the pitch towards the top of the pitch when viewing the pitch in TV view

pitch_units

The units with which to draw the pitch. The default is NULL, which will apply the rule-book specified units

xlims

The limits on the final display in the x direction. The default is NULL, which will utilize the xlims specified by the display_range parameter

ylims

The limits on the final display in the y direction. The default is NULL, which will utilize the ylims specified by the display_range parameter

Value

A ggplot2 instance with a full-surface representation of a soccer pitch

Examples

if (FALSE) {
  geom_soccer(league = "EPL", rotation = 270, display_range = "offense")
  geom_soccer(league = "fifa", pitch_units = "ft")
}
