Team sports impose the athletes playing within an unpredictable and stressful environment featuring multiple high paced actions. Most of these actions are pivotal to turn sport-specific situations (i.e., athlete-to-athlete duels) into favourable occasions for successfully winning the game. However, due to the distinctive congested fixture of the modern competitive events, team sports athletes have very limited time for a complete recovery undergoing acute/delayed fatigue effects, in terms of psychophysiological stress, physical and cognitive performance decline, and technical skills impairment.

Performance and recovery changes depend on several factors, which concur to limited and well-defined implications as the increase likelihood of injury occurrence and the decrease in sport performance. In this context, the current Research Topic has the goal of collecting the recent evidence to offer a better understanding of sport performance and recovery dynamics within a multidimensional perspective:
· Cognitive
· Physical
· Technical
· Physiological
· Psychological
· Morphological
· Preventive

The scope of the current Research Topic is to advance knowledge of the factors affecting sport performance and recovery emphasizing the use of novel strategies to alleviate potential carryover effects of fatigue. This Research Topic gives the opportunity to submit any type of article focusing on the following areas:
· time course of recovery of psychophysiological variables after a game or within a congested fixture
· acute and long-term effects of training strategies to alleviate sport performance decline and to enhance recovery
· the role of cognitive performance
· the importance of morphological profile in terms of whole body and regional features
· physical, technical, and tactical assessment
· injury prevention strategies

Keywords: recovery, fatigue, well-being, cognition, perceptual response


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
