Soccer (Football) Formation

The soccer (football) formation is an arrangement of the players on the pitch and their behavior during the game to meet the objectives set by the soccer coach. The different formations are used depending on the team goals. Thanks to a certain starting position of the player it is possible to define its main tasks in the match. The numbers in the designation of the formation mean respectively: the number of defenders, midfielders and forwards.

Using diagrams is the easiest way to explain the soccer formations. The Soccer solution from the Sport area of ConceptDraw Solution Park is designed as a tool that helps you produce the soccer diagrams in a few minutes. The predesigned samples of the Soccer solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM depict the most popular formation diagrams.

Use the "Soccer (Football) Fields" and "Soccer (Football) Positions" libraries from the Soccer solution and follow the next steps to create your own soccer-related drawing quick and easy:

  • From the "Soccer (Football) Fields" library drop a field object to your document;
  • From the "Soccer (Football) Positions" library drop all position objects you need to your document;
  • Place positions on the field according to your drawing idea;
  • Add arrows or text labels if needed.
Soccer (Football) Formation *

Sample 1. Soccer (Football) Formation 2—3—5 Pyramid

This sample shows the 2–3–5 formation that is also known as the "Pyramid". By the 1890s, it was the standard formation in England and then it was spread all over the world. In this formation was reached the balance between the attack and defense.

Soccer (Football) Formation 3—2—5 WM

Sample 2. Soccer (Football) Formation 3—2—5 WM

On this sample you can see the soccer formation 3–2–5 WM. The WM system was created in 1920s by Herbert Chapman of Arsenal. Was reduced the number of opposition players and was introduced a centre-back to stop the opposing centre-forward. The WM system was subsequently adapted by several English sides.

Soccer (Football) Formation 3—4—3

Sample 3. Soccer (Football) Formation 3—4—3

This sample shows the formation 3–4–3 that is used by the offensive teams, for example by Liverpool under Rafael Benitez during the second half of the 2005 UEFA Champions League Final. There are only three defenders. So if the opposing team will break through the midfield, they will have a great chance to score.

Soccer (Football) Formation 4—3—3

Sample 4. Soccer (Football) Formation 4—3—3

The soccer formation 4–3–3 that you see on this sample was developed from the 4–2–4. The Brazilian national team in the 1962 World Cup was played 4–3–3. The three midfielders move laterally across the field as a coordinated unit and play together to protect the defense. The three forwards split across the field to spread the attack. The 4-3-3 formation is very useful for ball retention and for a short passing game.

Soccer (Football) Formation 4—4—1—1

Sample 5. Soccer (Football) Formation 4—4—1—1

This sample demonstrates the formation 4-4-1-1. One of the strikers plays as a "second striker" ("in the hole"). The second striker is a playmaker that can easy drop into midfield to pick up the ball before running it.

Soccer (Football) Formation 4—4—2

Sample 6. Soccer (Football) Formation 4—4—2

On this sample you can see the soccer formation 4–4–2 that was successfully used by Fabio Capello that won three European Cups, two Intercontinental Cups, and three UEFA Super Cups between 1988 and 1995. And also Carlo Ancelotti's Milan used it on the UEFA Champions League where he won the final in 2003 and made runners-up in 2005. The formation 4–4–2 has only two forwards and is defensive formation. The team forms the game on the counter-attacks.

The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Soccer Solution. They demonstrate the solution's capabilities and the professional results you can achieve. An experienced user spent no more than 5 minutes creating every of these samples.

Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving. Computer Science. Chomsky Hierarchy →

A Venn diagram, sometimes referred to as a set diagram, is a diagramming style used to show all the possible logical relations between a finite amount of sets. In mathematical terms, a set is a collection of distinct objects gathered together into a group, which can then itself be termed as a single object. Venn diagrams represent these objects on a page as circles or ellipses, and their placement in relation to each other describes the relationships between them. The Venn diagram example below visualizes the the class of language inclusions described by the Chomsky hierarchy.Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving. <br> Computer Science. Chomsky Hierarchy *

Process Flowchart →

When trying to figure out the nature of the problems occurring within a project, there are many ways to develop such understanding. One of the most common ways to document processes for further improvement is to draw a process flowchart, which depicts the activities of the process arranged in sequential order — this is business process management. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is business process mapping software with impressive range of productivity features for business process management and classic project management. This business process management software is helpful for many purposes from different payment processes, or manufacturing processes to chemical processes. Business process mapping flowcharts helps clarify the actual workflow of different people engaged in the same process. This samples were made with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software for flowcharting and used as classic visio alternative because its briefly named "visio for mac" and for windows, this sort of software named the business process management tools. This flowchart diagram shows a process flow of project management. The diagram that is presented here depicts the project life cycle that is basic for the most of project management methods. Breaking a project into phases allows to track it in the proper manner. Through separation on phases, the total workflow of a project is divided into some foreseeable components, thus making it easier to follow the project status. A project life cycle commonly includes: initiation, definition, design, development and implementation phases. Distinguished method to show parallel and interdependent processes, as well as project life cycle relationships. A flowchart diagram is often used as visual guide to project. For instance, it used by marketing project management software for visualizing stages of marketing activities or as project management workflow tools. Created with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software which is flowcharting visio alternative or shortly its visio for mac, this sort of software platform often named the business process management tools.Process Flowchart
