Recently, there has been an increase in scientific research regarding team sports.1–6 Surprisingly however, there has been little research about the best training methods to improve “physical performance” (e.g., number of sprints) during actual team-sport competitions. This is undoubtedly related to the difficulty in conducting training studies and in measuring “physical performance” during team sports.

While such a concept appeals to common sense, the scientific evidence in support of this approach is lacking.
