The trend in the formation in football, determines that the anthropometric variables are important when defining among other things, the most suitable playing position. These morphological parameters are an essential part of the evaluation and selection of athletes. These patterns can determine the physical evolution of football from an early age, which helps tremendously in the operation thereof. Anthropometrically, a total of 406 professional footballers from 15 Chilean clubs were evaluated, of which 12 belong to the first division clubs and 3 to First B. There are differences in some basic anthropometric variables by playing position, which places us at a disadvantage compared to other international players, such as height. No differences in the Phantom or the somatotype by playing position, i.e. variables are relatively homogeneous. This could suggest that a player can perform at any position in the game, but we have seen that the height, weight and fat mass are different for each position, so that each player has their own characteristics and their role in the coaches and trainers should be fixed at the time of placing each player on their specific function.
