Sports scenarios present an interesting challenge for visual surveillance applications. Here, we describe a system, and a set of techniques, for tracking players in a football (soccer) environment. The system input is video data from static cameras with overlapping fields-of-view at a football stadium. The output is the real-world, real-time positions of football players during a match. In this chapter, we discuss the problems and solutions that have arisen whilst designing systems and algorithms for this purpose.
