Data science and analytics are being more frequently employed on both the club and national levels to improve performance, equipment, marketing, scouting, etc. In conjunction with this special issue, we organize a machine learning challenge task where the goal is to predict the outcomes of future matches based on a data set of over 200,000 soccer matches from soccer leagues around world. This special issue solicits papers about machine learning approaches for all aspects of soccer. The OSF project hosts the relevant materials. There is no guarantee that the data is free of errors.
