Abstract: The aim of this paper is to assess the efficiency of football. Our contributions to the literature are the use of the resource‐based theory and the strategy‐structure‐performance perspective as the study's framework, efficiency has been considered as the result of the qualities of the productive resources in football teams and efficiency is calculated in every area in the field of play. The results show that the entire team's efficiency is positively related to sporting success and the efficiency of attacking and ball recovery areas is directly related to the sport result and the efficiency of the team as a whole.
