Determination of offensive coefficients in high performance futsal


Leite Werlayne


The aim of this study was to propose indicator parameters that can help in better understanding of the offensive processes in high performance futsal, namely: the Offensive Production Coefficient (OPC), the Finalization Efficiency Coefficient (FEC) and Finalization Effectiveness (FE). We analyzed the final of the UEFA Futsal European Championship 2010 between Portugal and Spain. The methodology used was the descriptive observational analysis and the data collection was conducted through structured spreadsheet. The results showed that the OPC of the Spanish team was 55.88%, while the OPC of the Portuguese team was 35.48%. In relation to the FEC, in this game, the Portuguese national team achieved a utilization of 51.51%, while the Spanish team got an FEC of 43.86%. Regarding FE, the Spanish team achieved a utilization of 16%, while the Portuguese national team obtained an FE of 11.76%. Spain was the most efficient selection for the game, being superior in all items analyzed in this study (with the exception of FEC). The OPC and the FEC parameters are indicators that can help in the planning of training and competition. One cannot say that the team with best indicators is the winner, due to the unpredictability of the game. However, the final result of the game will always be conditioned by FE.
