Objective: The aim of this study is to compare the effects of the general warm-up and the FIFA 11+ warm-up program on athletic performance and Functional Movement Screen (FMS) test scores.

Materials and methods: Participants were divided into two groups, the general warm-up group (GWG) (n=20) and the FIFA 11+ warm-up group (FWG) (n= 20). Anthropometric measurements, 10-20-30m sprint, zig-zag agility with and without the ball, vertical jump, sit and reach flexibility, Yo-Yo, star excursion balance and FMS tests were performed. “Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test” was used to determine the difference between the pretest and posttest of the participants.

Results: 20 meters and 30 meters sprint, endurance skills and the FMS subtests in shoulder mobility and FMS total score improved in the posttest of GWG group. 10 m, 20 m, 30 m speed, agility, vertical jump, balance, endurance, flexibility and all FMS subtests and the FMS total scores improved in the posttest of FWG group.

Conclusion: FIFA 11+ exercises in warm-up have a significant impact on athletic performance and Functional Movement Screen test scores.
