Abstract

Previous work by one of the authors minimised the distance travelled by UK football clubs over the Christmas/New Year period. In doing so various constraints have to be respected. One of these relates to clashes which measures how many paired teams play at home on the same day. The schedules that are actually used allow a certain number of clashes and our previous work utilised these values for our investigations. In this work we explore if travel distances increase if we reduce the number of clashes below those that were used in practise. This initial study considers one season and future work will carry out experiments across other seasons and extend the analysis that we carry out here.
