Flash Academy Case Study

 A Manchester United Study found that the 4v4 small sided academy game format includes the following benefits compared to the 7v7 and 9v9 game format:

  • Number of passes – increase of 135% 
  • Scoring attempts – increase of 260% 
  • Number of goals scored – increase of 500% 
  • Number of 1v1 encounters – increase of 225% 
  • Number of dribbling skills (tricks) – increase of 280% 
  • Everyone plays 
  • Many touches of the ball 
  • The different games bring out different skills 
  • Many opportunities for everyone to score goals 
  • Lots of problem solving opportunities without coaches talking you through the game 
  • Kids are not just a defender or an attacker but a footballer and have a much better all-round understanding of the game 
  • It is a very flexible format, pitches can be marked out with cones and you can have as many different 4v4 games as you have kids.
  • The objective is to rear a generation of soccer players who play with creativity and without fear, who solve their own problems on the field, and who enjoy the game.
