The aim of this study was to develop normative positional performance profiles in professional football. Six Premier League and six Non-Premier League matches were sampled using a hand notation system. Using a series of performance indicators and a technical rating system, ranging from -3 too +3, team profiles and positional profiles were developed to create an over all Premier League and Non-Premier League profile but also positional and team profiles. A chi-squared test of independent was carried out on test-re-test scores T3 and T4 and reliability of the system was accepted at 95% level of significance. A number of statistical test were carried out, including a Mann-Whitney test and Kruskal-Wallis, on the data and significant differences (P<0.05) were revealed between inter and intra positional units which accepted the original hypothesis. The study revealed supportive and conflictive results in relation to the already existing literature. From the results it was concluded that there is a significant difference between Premier League and Non-Premier League profiles but further research is need basing profiles on medians apposed to means as some surprising results are revealed due to profiles being developed based on mean values.
