Soccer Analytics

In my dealings with the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer (MLS), there are several projects that they would like me to investigate. One example concerns an investigation of the home field advantage in MLS which seems to be greater than in other soccer leagues. The objective is to determine the factors which contribute to home field advantage, and given the results, see if something can be done to provide the Whitecaps with a competitive advantage. The work involved in this project will consist of data collection and modeling in a regression context.
