Resum

In this paper we have investigated the spatial and temporal entropies of football teams, focusing on the locations of the passes made during a match and the evolution of the organization of each corresponding passing network.First, we observed that the spatial entropy Hs obtained from the passes' positions of all teams was always close to the one, indicating a high randomness. We have observed higher entropies in the middle of the field, which decrease as the lateral boundaries are approached. Next, we constructed a dynamic measurement about the statistical complexity, which account for temporal fluctuations of the time series of each team-network.
