SQL soccer Database: Joins Exercise-52 with Solution
52. From the following tables, write a SQL query to find those referees who managed most of the matches. Return referee name, country name and number of matches.
Sample table: match_mast
Sample table: referee_mast
Sample table: soccer_country
SELECT c.referee_name, b.country_name, count(a.match_no) FROM match_mast a JOIN referee_mast c ON a.referee_id=c.referee_id JOIN soccer_country b ON c.country_id=b.country_id GROUP BY c.referee_name, b.country_name HAVING count(a.match_no) = (SELECT max(mm) FROM (SELECT count(a.match_no) mm FROM match_mast a JOIN referee_mast c ON a.referee_id=c.referee_id JOIN soccer_country b ON c.country_id=b.country_id GROUP BY c.referee_name, b.country_name) hh);
referee_name | country_name | count ------------------+--------------+------- Damir Skomina | Slovenia | 4 Mark Clattenburg | England | 4 Nicola Rizzoli | Italy | 4 (3 rows)
The provided query in SQL that retrieves information about referees and the countries they are associated with, as well as the number of matches they have officiated.
The JOIN clause in this query then joins the match_mast and referee_mast tables based on the referee_id column and joins the results with soccer_country tables based on the country_id column.
It then groups the data by referee_name and country_name and calculates the count of matches for each group.
The HAVING clause filters the results and only return the rows where the count of matches is equal to the maximum count of matches in the entire dataset.
