Football is a very popular subdivision of sports for our country, as all around the world and the money spent for football is on a large scale. In spite of this, scientific studies interested in the statistical, economical dimensions and performance evaluation for the football are scarce in our country even in the world. One of the reasons of this is not to record football statistics in our country. FIFA statistics can be hold as a sample in this field. FIFA, holds about fifty numbers of different football statistics at player basis or team level during the World Cup matches. It is obvious that the performance of players one by one and as an entire and the team's performance is so important. The goal of this study is to pioneer for how the performance analysis is applied and how its results can be benefited in football if the statistics are recorded. Displaying the numerical size of defectiveness mathematically also helps trainers and players. On the other hand, the output oriented CCR model of data envelopment analysis and super efficiency model AP were used.
