Football Exercises and Warm Up
Fifa have been hard at work producing an evidenced based warm up programme to prevent injury!
Overview of 11+
- 300 million registered players, referee’s and technical staff
- 40 million female football players
- Consistent implementation of “11+” can reduce injury by 30-50%
- Teams that performed 11+ regularly at least twice a week had 37% fewer training injuries and 29% match injuries.
- Severe injuries were reduced to almost 50%
