FIFA Technical Study Group (TSG)
At FIFA we are part of the technical study group where we analyse and break down matches of Major FIFA Organised world Cup championships.Based on our findings we make proposals as to how football can be improved for the best for the world.Till date we have analysed games at the 2013 FIFA Under 17 world Cup in Abu Dhabi,United Arab Emirates and the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil!
The FIFA Technical Study Group (TSG) analyses matches at FIFA Organized international tournaments and highlights the latest trends in the game.This function has been in existence for over 46 years, initiated by FIFA’S Walter Gagg.
Established in 1965,it’s inaugural tournament was the 1966 World Cup held and won by England.
Every world organized event is accompanied by a panel of experts ranging from world class Coaches,analysts and technicians of Football who study matches at FIFA World Cup Tournaments.
The TSG’s priority is to observe teams in matches and training sessions by experts separated who report their findings with the group and provokes a series of in-depth conversations, with the objective of prompting discussion and an exchange of views.
FIFA’s Technical section is Currently headed by Jean-Paul Brigger, a former Swiss international.
Technical reports are published after each and every FIFA competition in order to analyze how the game is progressing. The report, compiled by the Technical Study Group (TSG) and drawn up by the technical development department of the football’s world governing body, contains a match-by-match analysis, detailed statistics as well as an appraisal of each team’s performance.
The information is collected in a report made available to FIFA member associations afterwards as a development tool. DVDs containing visual support materials for training programs are also distributed.
The material aims to enhance and promote day-to-day activity on the training ground. The key goals are raising quality thresholds and promoting individual player development.
TSG reports are by no means confined to factual match analysis. The TSG is deeply involved in sparking debate on matters such as the impact of restricted preparation ahead of major tournaments on individual player performance, The TSG issues summaries and recommendations
which are forwarded to the relevant decision-makers.
The TSG undertakes a wide range of tasks, but the fundamental priorities remain the same: to continue the development of the world’s best loved sport.
