The present study focuses on the characteristics of the somatotypical profiles of high performance, adult, male, Turkcell super league football players in Turkey.The somatotypical values of 24 Gençlerbirliği football team (GB) and 24 Gençlerbirliği Oftaş Football Team (GBO) players are elaborated for this study. It is aimed to identify football players’ physical profile and somatotypical values in correlation with the positions they play. Anthropometric standardization reference manual (ASRM) and international biological program (IBP) references were pursued for antropometrical measurements. Triceps, subscapular, supraspinale measurements and the thickness of calf and skin, humerus bicondylar, femur bicondylar, bicepsgirth, weight, and height measurements were used in somatotypical calculations. The somatotypical calculations and analyses were completed using Somatotype 1.1 programme, and statistic program for social sciences (SPSS) is used for statistical evaluation and ANOVA analyses. Consequently, no significant differences were found among the team players.

 

Key words: Turkey, football, soccer, antropometric, somatotype, high performance.
