2020 Week 46: Can you build a Premier League table?


I was scrolling thru my Twitter timeline and noticed a comment by fellow Zen Master Simon Beaumont to #MakeoverMonday co-lead Charlie Hutcheson regarding tables, specifically the kind to track teams and the results of matches in the English Premier League (which are a group of the highest level teams that play football/soccer in England).


Well, this table (or at least parts of it) are the inspiration for this week’s challenge.


  • Dashboard Size: 800px by 700 px
  • # of Sheets – up to you
  • Create a table that shows:
    • Total matches played
    • Total Wins
    • Total Ties
    • Total Losses
  • Create a bar chart showing the total points earned
    • 3 points for a win
    • 1 point for a tie
    • 0 points for a loss
  • Create a visual showing the outcomes of the last 5 matches where the most recent is on the right side.
  • Data Help
    • HomeTeam: The team playing on their own field
    • AwayTeam: The team not playing on their own field
    • FTHG: Total goals for the home team
    • FTAG: Total goals for the away team
    • Date: Date of the match
    • Finishing Elements
      • Sort by total points
      • Make sure the table looks seamless
      • Match tooltips, which are pretty simple
      • Match formatting
      • Use your choice of colors


This week uses the EPL dataset. You can get it here.


When you publish your solution on Tableau Public make sure to take the time and include a link to the original inspiration.  Also include the hashtag #WOW2020 in your description to make it searchable!


After you finish your workout, share on Twitter using the hashtag #WOW2020 and tag @AnnUJackson@LukeStanke, @_Lorna_Brown and @HipsterVizNinja
