Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In elite football soccer, the quest for new training methods in order to improve performance is never-ending. Specially in recent years, the pace at which technology is advancing have created a situation where more athletes are incorporating novel technology to their training protocol, and Virtual Reality is one of the key technologies. Even though employing Virtual Reality for physical training is not new, the approaches employed so far have been plagued with problems due to technological limitations. Now, with the advent of mass consumer VR products and rapid advancement of the technology supporting such devices is opening new levels of refinement and possibilities. Thanks to this tendency, we are able to design a VR Soccer Training system that offers the possibility for both coaches and players to re-experience countless times previous matches inside VR from both their point of view as well as their adversary’s with just a pc and a Head Mounted Display. By such means, in this work we focus our efforts in analyzing the enhancing effect of VR in helping the players develop their spatio-temporal awareness, crucial in team-based sports for knowing the best location to pass the ball with high success rate in a way that could be only realizable with virtual reality. Furthermore, we also aim for finding the proper implementation that allows us to employ previously captured displacement data for creating new hypothetical in-game situations inside the VR simulation, so that the athletes can achieve a new level of visualization training with the expected improvement in their overall performance on the pitch.
