Games such as association football ("soccer"), rugby union and field hockey are among the most popular participation and spectator activity in the world. They can provide an environment for non-elite and elite competition, professional employment, physical activity, social interaction and profitable commercial enterprises.

Based on his laboratory and field-based research programme, Dr Morris will discuss some of the physiological and other challenges presented by games type activity, and some of the potential benefits for those involved with this type of intermittent, high-intensity exercise.
