The training programmes for sports are to be designed that they may favourably affect the speed associated with high performance capacity in that sport. The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of high-intensity interval training on selected physical variable among university football players. To achieve the purpose of the study, twenty subjects were randomly selected from Vidyasagar University, West Bengal, India. All players participated in the university-level football competition. The age of the subjects ranged from 18-24 years. The subjects (N=20) were divided into two equal groups: Group I (n=10) acted as the control group, and Group II (n=10) acted as the experimental group. Group I underwent regular activity, and Group II underwent high-intensity interval training. The pre-test was administered 8 weeks prior to the post-test, and after the pre-test, the experimental group received high-intensity interval training while the control group maintained their regular activity. An analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference between the control and experimental groups on a selected physical variable among university football players. The level of confidence was fixed at the 0.05 level to test for significance. From the results of the study, it was concluded that there was a significant difference in speed between the control and experimental groups of university football players.
