Hi all,

just to inform you that the 'footBayes' package (version 0.1.0) is now on CRAN:


The package wants to be the most comprehensive tool for the football (soccer) modelling ecosystem.
As such, it allows the estimation, the visualization and the prediction for the most
well-known football (soccer) models, according to the references:

Dixon and Coles (1997) <doi:10.1111/1467-9876.00065>,
Karlis and Ntzoufras (2003) <doi:10.1111/1467-9884.00366> and
Egidi, Pauli and Torelli (2018) <doi:10.1177/1471082X18798414>.

In brief, the goal of ```footBayes``` is to propose a complete workflow to:

- fit the most well-known football models: double Poisson, bivariate Poisson, Skellam, student-t, according to both maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods (+ Hamiltonian Monte Carlo engine);

- visualize the teams' abilities, the model checks, the rank-league reconstruction;

- predict out-of-sample matches.

Try the package now and enjoy!
