# SQL Exercise: Countries where assistant referees assist most matches

## SQL soccer Database: Joins Exercise-47 with Solution

47. From the following table, write a SQL query to find the countries from where the assistant referees assist most of the matches. Return country name and number of matches.

Sample table: match_details

Sample table: asst_referee_mast

Sample table: soccer_country

Sample Solution:

SQL Code:

``````SELECT country_name,
count(DISTINCT match_no)
FROM match_details a
JOIN asst_referee_mast c ON a.ass_ref=c.ass_ref_id
JOIN soccer_country b ON c.country_id=b.country_id
GROUP BY country_name
HAVING count(DISTINCT match_no)=
(SELECT max(mm)
FROM
(SELECT count(DISTINCT match_no) mm
FROM match_details a
JOIN asst_referee_mast c ON a.ass_ref=c.ass_ref_id
JOIN soccer_country b ON c.country_id=b.country_id
GROUP BY country_name) hh);
```
```

Sample Output:

``` country_name | count
--------------+-------
England      |     7
(1 row)
```

Code Explanation:

The said query in SQL that selects the name of countries and the count of distinct match numbers in the match_details table for each country.
The HAVING clause filters the results to only show the countries whose count of distinct match numbers is equal to the maximum count of distinct match numbers among all countries. The maximum count of distinct match numbers is obtained by a subquery that selects the count of distinct match numbers for each country and then selects the maximum count from those results.
The JOIN clause joins the match_details and asst_referee_mast table based on the ass_ref and ass_ref_id columns, joins the results with the soccer_country tables based on the country_id column to obtain the required data.
