High press describes an attacking tactic employed by a team that defends high up the pitch and inside the opposition’s half.
Teams use a high press to defend far away from goal. The team’s forwards are usually the main instigators of this tactic.
The forwards must pressure opposing defenders, block forward passes and force mistakes to win the ball close to the goal. When using a high press, defenders are in danger of being beaten by passes into the space behind.
