A probabilistic communication structure considers the setting with communication restrictions in which each pair of players has a probability to communicate directly. In this paper, we consider a more general framework, called a probabilistic communication structure with fuzzy coalition, that allows any player to have a participation degree to cooperate within a coalition. A maximal product spanning tree, indicating a way of the greatest possibility to communicate among the players, is introduced where the unique path from one player to another is optimal. We present a feasible procedure to find the maximal product spanning trees. Furthermore, for games under this model, a new solution concept in terms of the average tree solution is proposed and axiomatized by defining a restricted game in Choquet integral form.
