Recovery modes have been suggested in this research which are foam rolling, massage and passive recovery. However, athletes can experience muscle fatigue in different sports like soccer, rugby, sprinter and etc. it can happen if the athletes do too many exercises, training or games without sufficient recovery time and proper recovery. This research aimed to examine the effects of myofascial release and passive recovery as methods of recovery to professional footballers right after the competitive events during the recovery process. This study involved quantitative method using experimental design to compare the effects of three different interventions tools for recovery process among UiTM Perlis FC players. A total of 30 male footballers completed PAR-Q+ and consent form. The variables measured in this study were (1) Total Quality Recovery (2) sit and reach (3) 20-meter sprint (4) standing long jump. Meanwhile, the interventions modalities were (1) foam rolling (2) massage and (3) passive recovery (control). Three trial has given to all participants for each variable on pre-test and post-test. Data were analysed by using paired sample t-test to compare within groups and One-Way ANOVA to compare between groups. Results shown that only Total Quality Recovery has a significant effect (p= 0.05). While, sit and reach, 20-meter sprint and standing long jump did not show any significant effects (p>0.05). This study found that recovery modalities did change the individual’s perception of recovery and does not affect the performance.
