A pass that immediately creates a clear goal scoring opportunity for a teammate.
- Key Passes include only type pass actions
- If a key pass is a Shot Assist, it will be assigned the xA value (see Shot Assist).
- A Key Pass can also be an assist.
Please note: on legacy API endpoint v2/match/wyId/events a Key Pass (API tagId: 302) was considered any action (not only a pass type) that immediately creates a clear goal scoring opportunity for a teammate who in turn fails to score. As a consequence a Key Pass was never also an assist.
Successful: Yes / No
A key pass is considered successful if the next touch of the ball is by a teammate.
