For the same game, I would also like to add additional and more information here: where do you sing top 7 sports?
Players will run an estimated 7 miles per game in the soccer World Cup starting June 12 in Brazil. (And the referees will run even more!) Here’s how it compares to athletes in other sports.
List of Top 7 sports that require running are:
Baseball ( .046 miles)
This is a reasonable estimate based on Troy Tulowitzki’s numbers. The Colorado Rockies’ current Major League Baseball batting leader, which converts to about 242 feet each game. There are 90 feet between each base. The total distance run by Tulowitzki during the 49 regular season games played as of press time is just over 2 miles when all of the singles, doubles, triples, stolen bases, and home runs are added up. Even fewer miles, or more precisely, feet, are logged by those who are unsuccessful at the plate.
Football players are not given much time to travel long distances. The Wall Street Journal reports that only 11 minutes of an NFL game are spent actually playing. Running slightly over a mile every game, receivers, and cornerbacks are the most active. Even with 11 enormous, well-trained athletes who would prefer to run as little as possible, that’s still a remarkable accomplishment.
Basketball a state-of-the-art tracking tool has enabled coaches and statisticians to monitor NBA player performance in real-time, including the number of games played. Another generous estimate, based on the average SportVU travel time to the top ten hardwood pounders. Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls averaged 3.1 miles per game during the 2014 season.
The distance covered largely depends on the style of play and the duration of the match, but competitive players can expect to sprint and run for around 5 km chasing balls. During the longest tennis match ever recorded at Wimbledon in 2010, it is estimated that John Isner and Nicolas Mahut ran approximately 6 miles during 11 hours and five minutes of play.
Field Hockey(5.6 miles)
According to TribeSports, field hockey players travel more than athletes in almost any other sport. Chasing & defending the ball for nearly 10 km during a 70-minute game.
A bigger field and rarer substitutions mean footballers, and a faster-moving ball, can expect to log up some heavy mileage over 90 minutes. Midfielders run the most, sometimes reaching nearly 9.5 miles.
