Sport score (also known as “points” or “goals”) is the metric used to determine a winner in a competition. Most team-based sports use points as their primary measuring mechanism, while individual-based sports often focus on achieving an abstract quantity such as a distance or time.
In association football and hockey, teams accrue goals by putting the ball in the opposing team’s net. Other basket and net sports such as volleyball, soccer and lacrosse have similar scoring systems that involve kicking the ball into a net. In esports, the winner is determined by winning rounds in a competition; the first team to win a certain number of rounds is the winner.
Some sports do not fall into any of these categories, and are unique in their scoring systems. However, many studies have found that psychological factors account for 79-85% of the variance in performance.
One of the best ways to keep up with your favorite sporting events is through a dedicated app that provides live scores and statistics. It is available for iOS and Android and offers a versatile range of features, including real-time scores, team stats, shotmaps, player ratings, Heatmaps and Attribute overview, as well as match analysis and commentary. It also supports Android Wear smartwatches and includes a chat option to engage with other users.
