How to tag ...

  • that a player is affiliated with a team (including an optional time frame)
Use member of sports team (P54) miga for that, if you want to add a time frame use start date (P580) miga and end date (P582) miga as qualifiers
See basketball assistant coach (Q17279652) for an item on a basketball assistant coach, may need a more generic item for assistant coaches in general.
  • a national sports team
My personal solution for this: Use instance of (P31) = national sports team (Q1194951). For additional points add of (P642) = [nation] as qualifier to that claim. To add the type of sports, use sport (P641) = [sport]. As an alternative you could also use instance of (P31) = [sports team, e.g. basketball team (Q13393265)]. I prefer the sport (P641) solution though. --Bthfan (talk)


This one is not an easy problem to solve as quite a few Wikipedia articles mix team and club. Also people sometimes say "team" when they mean "club" (as far as I see this :). See the discussion page for more input on this.
