Back­ground. The ­aims ­were to ­describe anthro­po­metric and per­for­mance char­ac­ter­is­tics of ­elite ­players in two foot­ball ­codes and ­explore the dif­fer­ences ­between ­them.
­Methods. ­Data ­were com­pared by ­means of “t”-­tests. Sub­jects: sub­jects ­were 19 pro­fes­sional ­soccer ­players and 33 ­inter-­county ­Gaelic foot­ball ­players. Set­tings: meas­ure­ments ­were ­made on mem­bers of a Pre­mier ­League ­soccer ­team ­throughout ­their reg­ular ­season, ­whilst the ­Gaelic foot­ballers ­were mem­bers of the ­Mayo ­squad pre­paring for the 1999 All-Ire­land cham­pion­ship.
­Results. The var­i­ability in ­stature was sig­nif­i­cantly ­greater in the ­soccer ­players com­pared to the ­Gaelic foot­ballers (p<0.01). Per­for­mances in the 10-m and 30-m ­sprints, and in ver­tical ­jump ­were ­superior in the ­soccer ­group com­pared to the ­Gaelic foot­ballers (p<0.01).
Con­clu­sions. The ­intra-­group var­i­ability on the anthro­po­metric and per­for­mance meas­ures of the ­soccer ­players is ­likely to be due to the spec­i­ficity of posi­tional ­roles. The com­bined ­groups ­could be ­described as ­lean and mus­cular ­with a rea­son­ably ­high ­level of ­capacity in all ­areas of phys­ical per­for­mance. Anaer­obic char­ac­ter­is­tics of the pro­fes­sional ­soccer ­players ­were ­superior to ­those of ­Gaelic foot­ball ­players. It is con­cluded ­that anthro­po­metric and per­for­mance assess­ment of ­elite foot­ballers ­using ­mean ­values ­masks the het­ero­ge­neity evi­dent ­within the foot­ball ­codes.
