These maps were created in ArcGIS Pro 2.5 using the Network Analysis tools.
Premier League football returning was a welcome moment for many across the country who have missed watching football for several months. In the build up to the matches starting, we created a series of maps showing how far each team will travel from their home stadium to their opponents’ stadiums to finish the season. The simple grid style of the map allows for the supporters to find their team easily.
This map was released into the media just days before the Premier League restarted. The timing of this map saw it utilise the increasing anticipation of footballs return. Ranking football teams against each other always caused a sense of pride, and this was no different for each team’s estimated travel times. The maps included the key features, stadium locations and travel routes.
