It wasn't all that long ago that a footballer's diet was a pre-match fry up with all the trimmings, followed by a slice of orange at half-time and a pie and pint to wash it all down after the final whistle. Brian Clough even encouraged his players to drink before a cup final.
But those days are well behind us now, and a footballer's diet today is carefully tailored to the needs and high intensity of the beautiful game. Nutrition is top of the list for a football player's diet, focusing on tailoring the diet to a training schedule and ensuring that footballers play at the top of their game.
Sports nutrition can be pretty daunting if you're just starting, and there is a lot of information about what you should be doing, shouldn't be doing and everything in between ‒ which makes it pretty challenging to work out what to do at all.
For newcomers to sports nutrition, it's all about getting your diet and nutrition right so that you can boost your fitness and your general well-being. Getting sports nutrition right is down to the individual and your training schedule. There's no point in matching your diet and nutrition to a Premier League player if you only train a couple of times a week.
Sports nutrition for football goes beyond ordinary nutrition in that it doesn't just satisfy the dietary and nutritional needs of your body but also the training schedule you follow. It considers your body weight and the amount of exercise you get, and what you want to achieve to enhance your fitness on the pitch. When it comes to nutrition for footballers, there's no “one size fits all” approach. Our guide gives you an overview of how professionals use nutrition so you can apply it to up your game.
Blue skies, international football, and an endless supply of those little flies that appear from nowhere… that’s right, summer is here!
With your Sunday league season over for another year, this is the ideal time to relax your body, allow your injuries to heal, and finally clean your football boots.
Yet, as long as summer holidays used to seem when you were a youngster, the new season isn’t as far away as you think. As strength, stamina and anaerobic fitness all decrease due to inactivity, it is in your best interest to maintain some level of fitness throughout the summer to avoid having to start from scratch come the new season.
Here are some tips to help you stay in shape while having an enjoyable summer!

Pro footballers are known for some strange pre-match habits – whether that’s being the last player to walk onto the pitch, cutting holes in the back of their socks, or kissing their goalkeeper’s bald head.
Yet, one thing that every professional footballer does before, during and after football is hydrate properly. This is one habit that every Sunday league player should copy.
Good hydration is crucial. The average footballer is likely to lose 1.1 litres of water through sweat during a game; often more. Without replenishing yourself with enough fluid, you risk varying degrees of dehydration – when your body does not have enough water to do its job.
