Concussion in Football

Four things everyone involved in the game needs to know about concussion

When it comes to concussion, don't take chances

Concussion is a relatively common injury in football and one that can be dangerous if not taken seriously. That’s why everyone who takes part in football needs to know four things:

• What concussion is
• How you recognise it
• What to do if a player is concussed
• How to manage a player’s return to training/playing

You can read more about all these aspects in England Football's comprehensive guidelines. In addition, we strongly recommend you spend 20 minutes taking the free online concussion course provided by England Football Learning, the education arm of England Football.
