{{Infobox football biography}} is intended to provide a quick overview of an association football player's or manager's details to enable a reader to extract the most oft-needed information without trawling through the article proper.

Script error: No such module "Parameter names example".

Usage

Note: all the field names ending in 1 should be repeated for each team, e.g. youthyears1 and youthclubs1 should be followed by youthyears2 and youthclubs2 and so on, as needed.

Parameters

All parameters are optional.

{{{embed}}}
Enables the template to be embedded into another template, such as {{Infobox person}}.
{{{name}}}
The commonly used name of the player. If this is omitted, it will be inferred from the title of the article.
{{{fullname}}}
The player's complete name. Long names will wrap automatically to the width of the infobox, so there's no need to include explicit linebreaks.
{{{image}}}
A picture of the player, ideally on the pitch in the strip of his or her most recent team (or the team the player is most well known for, in the case of retirees). Images should be given in the format Example.jpg, rather than [[File:Example.jpg]].
{{{image_size}}}
The image's size, given as a number.
{{{alt}}}
Alternative text for the image.
{{{caption}}}
A caption for the image.
{{{birth_name}}}
If different from name and fullname.
{{{birth_date}}}
The player's date of birth. A template ({{Birth date}}, {{Birth date and age}}) should be used to add the date, but be sure to use the appropriate parameters to present the date in the same format as used in the text. The date should not be wikilinked.
{{{birth_place}}}
The location of the player's birth.
{{{height}}}
The player's height in the units most common within the country he or she plays, with a conversion (e.g. by using {{height}}). The infobox also supports automatic conversion if the height is specified as "X m", "X cm", or "X ft Y in".
{{{position}}}
The player's most common position or positions. If a player is known for playing in multiple roles then explain the point more fully within the article.
{{{currentclub}}}
The club for which the player currently plays, or is employed by. If the player now works in a non-playing role at the club, add this after the club in brackets. For retired players and free agents not currently employed by any club or federation, leave blank.
{{{clubnumber}}}
The shirt number of the player at his or her current club.
{{{youthclubs1}}}, {{{youthclubs2}}}... {{{youthclubs8}}}
A list of clubs that the player was a member of as a youth, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{college1}}}... {{{college3}}}
A list of colleges that the player was a member of as a part of a scholarship, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{youthyears1}}}, {{{youthyears2}}}... {{{youthyears8}}}
A list of years that the player has been at each club as a youth, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{years1}}}, {{{years2}}}... {{{years39}}}
A list of years that the player has been contracted at each club, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{clubs1}}}, {{{clubs2}}}... {{{clubs39}}}
A list of clubs that the player has been contracted at, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{caps1}}}, {{{caps2}}}... {{{caps39}}}
A list of appearances that the player has been awarded in league competition only for each club (note: Playoff matches are not counted as league matches by most statistical sources (e.g. Soccerbase and the Sky Sports (Rothmans) Football Yearbook), so they should not be included in this infobox), one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{totalcaps}}}
The total number of appearances the player has been awarded in league competition for all clubs.
{{{goals1}}}, {{{goals2}}}... {{{goals39}}}
A list of goals that the player has been awarded in league competition only for each club (note: Playoff matches are not counted as league matches by most statistical sources (e.g. Soccerbase and the Sky Sports (Rothmans) Football Yearbook), so they should not be included in this infobox), one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{totalgoals}}}
The total number of goals the player has scored in league competition for all clubs.
{{{nationalyears1}}}, {{{nationalyears2}}}... {{{nationalyears9}}}
A list of years that the player has played for each national team, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{nationalteam1}}}, {{{nationalteam2}}}... {{{nationalteam9}}}
A list of international teams that the player has played for, including non-senior teams such as U21, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{nationalcaps1}}}, {{{nationalcaps2}}}... {{{nationalcaps9}}}
A list of appearances that the player has been awarded in all competitions and friendlies for each national team, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{nationalgoals1}}}, {{{nationalgoals2}}}... {{{nationalgoals9}}}
A list of goals that the player has been awarded in all competitions and friendlies for each national team, one per attribute, earliest to latest.
{{{managerclubs1}}}, {{{managerclubs2}}}... {{{managerclubs30}}}
A list of clubs that the person has served within the capacity of team manager. Please do not list positions other than team manager (such as assistant or coach positions, or director of football roles where this role is not considered managerial) unless that position is a significant part of the person's career; this will apply primarily to those with significant or perhaps primary experience in management. Clubs listed can be both local and national and should be restricted to those ordinarily considered notable in themselves.
{{{manageryears1}}}, {{{manageryears2}}}... {{{manageryears30}}}
A list of years to accompany the above clubs.
{{{medaltemplates}}}
Honours can be added here using the templates {{Medal}}.
{{{club-update}}} (previously {{{pcupdate}}})
A timestamp at which the player's infobox club statistics are unambiguously correct. The bare date of the last match played should not be used because this is not unambiguous. Dates should use the same format as the rest of the article; use five tildes (~~~~~) to generate the current date/time in dmy format, or {{subst:mdytime}} for mdy format. The parameter is not needed if the player has retired.
{{{nationalteam-update}}} (previously {{{ntupdate}}})
A timestamp at which the player's infobox national team statistics are unambiguously correct. The bare date of the last match played should not be used because this is not unambiguous. Dates should use the same format as the rest of the article; use five tildes (~~~~~) to generate the current date/time in dmy format, or {{subst:mdytime}} for mdy format. The parameter is not needed if the player has retired.

Use as a child template

The embed parameter is used when embedding this infobox into another.

This infobox may be used to create a genre-specific section within {{Infobox person}} (or similar biographical infobox templates) for cases where a person may be notable in more than one field; a generic example is shown below. For guidance on usage, see Wikipedia:Infobox modules. Also see the Template:Infobox documentation which explains embedding and subboxes.

{{Infobox person
| name = 
| image = 
| caption = 
| birth_date = 
| birth_place = 
| <!-- etc. -->
| module = 
  {{Infobox football biography | embed=yes
  | parameter-1 = 
  | parameter-2 = 
  | parameter-3 = 
  | parameter-4 = 
  | <!-- etc. -->
  }}
}}

Embedding other templates

The module parameter is used for embedding other templates into this infobox (see Wikipedia:Infobox modules and Category:Biographical templates usable as a module).

{{Infobox football biography
| name = 
| <!-- etc. -->
| module = 
  {{Infobox ABC
  | embed = yes <!-- or child=yes / subbox=yes-->
  | <!-- etc. -->
  }}
}}

Style guide

Try to always consider that an infobox exists to support an article and provide a quick synopsis of important facts. This becomes vital when considering that the amount of space available within an infobox is significantly less than that available outside of it.

As per the manual of style entry on linking, years and dates should not be linked as they do not provide much benefit to the user.

Do not add flag icons to the birth_place, death_place, club, national team or other fields. See: Wikipedia:Manual of Style (flags).

As per the manual of style the player's height should be in the units most common in the country in which he or she plays. Units should be abbreviated in the infobox and spelt out in the article text. Ideally, measurements should be presented using the {{convert}} template, which automatically converts units between formats and handles the presentation of units. In this case, use the flag to ensure that units are presented in their short forms. {{height}} is a similar template designed for infoboxes, which presents units in short form by default.

Using {{convert}}:

  • {{convert|5|ft|10|in|abbr=on}} produces 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m)
  • {{convert|1.78|m|abbr=on}} produces 1.78 m (5 ft 10 in)

and using {{height}}:

  • {{height|ft=5|in=10}} produces 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m)
  • {{height|m=1.78}} produces 1.78 m (5 ft 10 in)

Microformats

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the person's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia or via a browser tool operated by a reader, to (for example) add the subject to an address book or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-birth ("bday") information will only be included in the microformat if {{birth date}}, or {{birth date and age}} are used in the infobox. (Do not use these if the date is before 1583). Be cautious about using these if the person is still living, per WP:DOB.

To include a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • bday
  • birthplace
  • category
  • country-name
  • deathdate
