Football is a very popular subdivision of sports not only in our country, but also all around the world. The money spent on football is on a large scale . In spite of this, scientific studies interested in the statistical, economical dimensions and performance evaluation for football are scarce in our country and even around the world. One of the reasons for this is because there is no recording of football statistics in our country. FIFA statistics can be held as a sample in this area. FIFA, holds about fifty different football statistics on the player basis or team level during the World Cup matches. It is obvious there is no debating that the performance of the players one by one and as an entire team is very important. The aim of this study is to pioneer for how the performance analysis is applied and how we can benefit from the results obtained in football, if the statistics existed. So, displaying the numerical size of defectiveness mathematically helps the trainers and players. On the other hand, the practical adaptation of data envelopment analysis such as the output oriented Charness, Cooper, Rhodes (CCR) and super efficiency Andersen-Petersen (AP) models are tested for a football performance evaluation.
