Keeping everyone in football safe

There is nothing more important in football than keeping players, coaches, spectators and everyone involved safe.

If we can do that we can all enjoy the game we love.


In February 2020, in response to concern at a potential link between heading and the incidence of degenerative neurocognitive disease, the FA announced updated heading guidance for all age groups between under 6 and under 18.

This guidance provides grassroots clubs, coaches and players with the recommended heading guidance for training sessions only.

It does NOT make any changes to the way matches are played.

There is no current evidence to suggest that heading the ball was the cause to the link with incidence of degenerative neurocognitive disease.

However, to mitigate against any potential risks updated guidance has been produced in parallel with UEFA’s medical committee.
