Abstract

Most team sports involve regular competition over the course of a season. There are several factors thought to affect match outcome in such a structured competition. These factors include days break between matches, match location, travel, team characteristics (age, height, and weight). All these factors can influence the structure of the training program. However, whilst monitoring training in an elite team sport environment is common practice, there are areas yet to be explored. The overall aim of this PhD thesis was to investigate factors affecting team success and the relationship between a global training load measure, match performance, and injury risk in an elite team sport. Three studies were undertaken to explore these ideas.
