Possession games are a great way to build both fitness and touch simultaneously and as such should form a vital part of any pre-season schedule.
Here three teams of equal number play within an area with two teams working together to keep possession and the third team trying to win the ball. If successful the team who gave the ball away then becomes the defending team and the other two teams now work together to try to keep the ball.
More after the break
This a great game to work on maintaining possession but also defensive pressing and both attacking and defensive transitions. The continuous nature of the game means it delivers a great conditioning effect for the players with football specific actions and realistic game related resistances.
