Home advantage

Jump to section Show

The term home advantage is used to describe the benefit that a home team has over a visiting team when playing at their home venue.

Statistically, teams playing at home tend to have an advantage when playing at home because they perform better. This is due to a variety of reasons such as the familiarity with the venue, the pitch, the changing rooms and the fans supporting the team in the stadium.

Bookmakers also take this into account when setting odds for events as playing at home can have such an advantage - even when the team is a massive underdog.
