    Is "space" suitable here?

    Hello guys,
    I don't know if space is the best choice here.
    Let me tell you these 2 examples.

    1. Soccer:
    You are in the mid-field and want to give the ball to your team-mates who are strikers (there are 2 strikers).
    The one is being covered by opponents but the other one is completely free.
    So you will give the ball to the free striker, because he has more space.

    2. A level in a game:
    You create two versions of a level.
    In version 1 there are strict limits/borders, so that players cannot really leave the level.
    In version 2 you remove these limits/borders, and players have more possibilities.
    For example they can reach mountains, trees etc. - things that are outside the actual level.
    This means level 2 gives players more space.

    I know that "possibilities" can be okay too, but I'm looking for another word, and I think "space" could be the right one.
    There are also other words like "freedom", but I'm not sure if they are okay here...

    Cheers!

    Let me tell [give] you these 2 examples.

    1. Soccer:
    You are in the midfield and want to give the ball to your teammates who are strikers (there are 2 strikers).
    The one [One of them = Der Eine] is being covered by opponents but the other one is completely free [open = frei].
    So you will give the ball to the free [open] striker, because he has more space [I would write: "he has more room/space to operate."].

    2. A level in a game:
    You create two versions of a level.
    In version 1 there are strict limits/borders, so that players cannot really leave the level.
    In version 2 you remove these limits/borders, and players have more possibilities.
    For example, they can reach mountains, trees, etc. - things that are outside the actual level.
    This means level 2 gives players more space [I would use "room," but I think "space" is ok.].

    I know that "possibilities" can be okay too, but I'm looking for another word, and I think "space" could be the right one.
    There are also other words like "freedom", but I'm not sure if they are okay here...

    That's only my own thought.
