Automated tools for assisting the behaviour analysis of collective sports are becoming a relevant factor to make the difference on improving the individual and collective performance.

This work presents a survey on the methodologies and tools for collective sports analysis and training, with special focus in soccer. The objective of this survey is to provide to analysts and researchers with an updated overview of collective sports analysis and to provide practitioners with a mean which could assist them on determining the most adequate methodology and/or tool for their requirements and context.

A comprehensive review is presented, from both the scientific methodologies and the commercial solutions, focused in the most prominent tools of the last decade. The study establishes the general structure of match analysis methodologies, categorised in terms of the type of technology, and establishing the advantages and limitations of the different groups.

The study concludes about the future trends on automatic behaviour analysis in collective sports, from both the training methodologies and the expected focus which tools assisting in this context should emphasise.
