Effect of Maximal Aerobic Power on Match Performance in Elite Soccer Referees.
Castagna, Carlo; D'Ottavio, Stefano
Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, v15 n4 p420-25 Nov 2001
Investigated whether soccer referees' maximal aerobic power could influence match performance (exercise intensity) during highly competitive games. Analysis of data from observations and monitoring of elite-level referees demonstrated the positive influence of maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) in determining both the total amount of distance covered and the exercise intensity during the game.
