The recent rise in women’s participation has seen research increase however the differences between the two genders overall have not had a huge focus. Post event analysis of 10 matches (5 women and 5 men) from the 2012 London Olympics was undertaken including a range of national teams. Sportscode was used to record a range of performance indicators for both teams in each match. Reliability procedures conducted included an intra-observer test producing a kappa statistic which indicted all the performance indicators had a very good strength of agreement. The performance indicators recorded revealed a majority of similarities between the genders. The differences identified were within the possession origins, revealing two significant differences. The non-parametric Mann-Whitney U test revealed that men achieved significantly more possession origins from contests and free kicks (p<0.05). Non significant differences (p>0.05) were found within the following variable categories; possession, final third entries, challenges, errors, fouls committed, passing and attempts on goal. In conclusion the majority of performance indicators within the genders were found to not be significantly different.
