‘’Trend shows fall in injury rates

A trend has emerged from the F-MARC data that shows a slight decrease in the number of injuries per match over the past three FIFA Women’s World Cups. These results are based on information submitted by team doctors immediately after each match. Further information is available in the FIFA Women’s World Cup™technical report(p. 95).

The average number of injuries per match at Canada 2015 was 2.12, compared with 2.27 in 2011 and 2.34 in 2007. The average number of time-loss injuries per match was 0.75 in 2015, compared with 1.1 in both 2011 and 2007. There was no difference in the average number of knee injuries per match from 2011 to 2015 (0.3), while there was a slight decrease in the average number of ankle injuries per match, from 0.34 in 2011 to 0.25 in 2015. Bruising injuries were at their highest rate in Canada compared to the previous FIFA Women’s World Cups.’’
