    Abstract

    This thesis examined the effects of international and domestic air travel, and practical travel-orientated interventions, on team sport specific performance in conjunction with physiological and perceptual recovery. The findings suggested international air travel disrupts sleep, exacerbating physiological fatigue and suppressing physical performance due to greater perceptual strain. However, whilst reducing this sleep disruption via sleep hygiene interventions attenuated travel fatigue, performance recovery was not improved. Conversely, results indicated domestic air travel had negligible effects on team sport performance and recovery.
