Study on the effect of football on ex-professionals
Recently, the FIELD research study was published relating to the effects of football on ex-professionals. Within this was a focus on the impact of heading the ball and the number of ex-professionals who have suffered with dementia. This is an important area to research and one that could potentially have an impact on how the game is played in the future. There are no current changes as further research is required, but for a link to full details of the FIELD research study carried out and the FA's response to it, please click below.
