11 Academic research Research has been conducted in a number of different academic institutions upon the value of small-sided games and the benefits they bring to player development. For example, Manchester Metropolitan University (2002/03 season), found that when compared to 8v8 they found that 4v4 had; 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%
