In this paper, we propose a method to track multiple players and ball in a football video which is captured by monocular camera. In the case of capturing the video from a single view, there might be a lot of occluded situations of players. To overcome this problem, we propose a robust tracking method for multiple players by combining Particle Filter and Classifier. In this method, we apply Homography to extract player's position on the pitch.
