Eight elite male soccer players from a Premier League Soccer Academy completed 4 v 4 and 8 v 8 games. The physiological responses to match-play were determined for each player by recording their heart rates during all the games and filming each player to determine individual work-rate profiles and evaluate technical actions. Mean ± SD heart rate for 4 v 4 and 8 v 8 matches were not significantly different (4 v 4, 175 ± 10 beats/min; 8 v 8, 168 ± 6 beats/min). Total distance covered during games…

Temporal Changes in Technical and Physical Performances During a Small-Sided Game in Elite Youth Soccer Players
TLDR
The data demonstrate that technical performance is maintained despite substantial declines in physical performance during a small-sided game (SSG) in elite youth players.
Effect of game format on heart rate, activity profile, and player involvement in elite and recreational youth players
TLDR
HR is high in youth football matches irrespective of the level of play and the game format, and playing with fewer players on smaller pitches results in minor changes to the physical loading but elevates the technical involvement of youth players both at elite level and recreational level.
Heart Rate Responses and Technical Comparison Between Small- vs. Large-Sided Games in Elite Professional Soccer
TLDR
Results show that small-sided games (SSG) induced significantly (p < 0.05, large effect) higher HR responses as compared to large-sidedGames, and players spent significantly longer time in the >85% maximal HR zone during SSGs, asCompared to larger-sidedgames.
Comparison of technical and physical activities between 8 vs. 8 and 11 vs. 11 games in young Korean soccer players
TLDR
The SSG format applied in the present study can be a suitable official game format for Korean young soccer players, resulting in significantly greater exposure to technical plays without excessive physical demands.
Comparison of the Physiological Responses to Different Small-Sided Games in Elite Young Soccer Players
TLDR
It can be concluded that a decreased number of players results in increased intensity during SSGs including 6 bouts, and coaches should pay attention on choosing the SSG type and the number of bouts to improve desired physical conditioning of elite young soccer players in soccer training.
Influence of the Area per Player in Non-Professional Soccer Players: A Pilot Study Focused on Positional Roles
TLDR
The general applicability of SSGs, regardless of physical/technical skills of the group of players, to enhance performance is confirmed; furthermore, quantitative advices on AMP and other performance variables are provided to achieve significant improvements in all soccer players of the team.
Performance, perceptual and physiological comparison of traditional and small-sided games in youth hockey
This study aimed to determine if children playing field hockey small-sided games (SSG) have different levels of physiological, performance and perceptual responses, compared to traditional hockey.
Heart Rate Responses during Small Sided Games and Official Match-Play in Soccer
TLDR
3- a-side, 4-a-side and 5-a -side SSG formats provide players with the opportunity to spend sufficient proportion of time spent in high intensity zones that are specific to match demands, and heart rate responses during SSGs and OM are investigated.
Differences in strength and speed demands between 4v4 and 8v8 small-sided football games
TLDR
The 4v4 + goalkeepers SSG format appeared more demanding in relation to repetitions and fatigue development of muscle power-based actions than 8v8 + GK, and may therefore be logical to use the former type of SSG to target development of power-related football actions.

Investigation of anthropometric and work-rate profiles of elite South American international soccer players.
TLDR
It seems that an individual's work-rate profile is dependent upon the type of competition and the playing position, due to the interaction between the variables that determine work- rate.
Factors influencing physiological responses to small-sided soccer games
TLDR
The results demonstrate that exercise intensity during small-sided soccer games can be manipulated by varying the exercise type, the field dimensions, and whether there is any coach encouragement.
Training and testing physical capacities for elite soccer players
  • J. Hoff
  • Education
    Journal of sports sciences
  • 2005
TLDR
Strength training to produce neural adaptations has been effective in changing not only strength in terms of “one-repetition maximum”, but also sprinting velocity and jumping height, in elite soccer players without any change in body mass.
MEASURES OF EXERCISE INTENSITY DURING SOCCER TRAINING DRILLS WITH PROFESSIONAL SOCCER PLAYERS
TLDR
It is demonstrated that HR and RPE are only poorly related during the intense drills used in this study, and that HR underestimates the intensity of the 2v2 drill.
Future Perspectives in the Evaluation of the Physiological Demands of Soccer
TLDR
The challenge for future researchers is to overcome remaining research design hurdles and devise ways to understand more fully the complexities of invasive field games such as soccer.
Aerobic endurance training improves soccer performance.
TLDR
Enhanced aerobic endurance in soccer players improved soccer performance by increasing the distance covered, enhancing work intensity, and increasing the number of sprints and involvements with the ball during a match.
Soccer specific aerobic endurance training
TLDR
Heart rate monitoring during soccer specific exercise is a valid indicator of actual exercise intensity and may be performed as aerobic interval training.
An ergonomics model of the soccer training process
  • T. Reilly
  • Education
    Journal of sports sciences
  • 2005
TLDR
An ergonomics model of training is described in which the demands of the game and the fitness profiles of soccer players are placed in perspective, and an increased tempo in contemporary professional soccer compared with previous decades is suggested.
SUITABILITY OF SOCCER TRAINING DRILLS FOR ENDURANCE TRAINING
TLDR
Football drills such as those used in the present study appear to be an adequate substitute for physical training without the ball and thus provide simultaneous skill and fitness training and the increase in training time spent developing technical ability and a reduction in total training time required may be useful for soccer teams.
