System Specialisation Levels

A team’s system specialisation level refers to the extent to which a team’s playing system enables players to perform positional responsibilities in specific ways.

A team can use a more specialised playing system (a higher system specialisation level), a more generalised playing system (a lower system specialisation level) or a balance or mixture of the two. A mixture can include both more specialised aspects and more generalised aspects.

A team implements its system specialisation level by incorporating it into the tactical roles of its players using tactical instructions as appropriate. In particular, a team can implement a system specialisation level through its use of responsibility specialism levels.

More Specialised Playing Systems

A more specialised playing system is a playing system that enables players to perform positional responsibilities in specific ways to a greater extent. It therefore enables nearby players to share positional responsibilities to a lesser extent.

A team can implement a more specialised playing system by assigning more tactical roles with higher responsibility specialism levels.

Player Suitability

Outfield players:

  • Good specific attacking and defensive abilities.

More Generalised Playing Systems

A more generalised playing system is a playing system that enables players to perform positional responsibilities in specific ways to a lesser extent. It therefore enables nearby players to share positional responsibilities to a greater extent.

A team can implement a more generalised playing system by assigning more tactical roles with lower responsibility specialism levels.

Player Suitability

Outfield players:

  • Decent all-round attacking and defensive abilities.
