Football is the most popular sport in the world, with 260 million male and female active participants, including ~113,000 FIFA registered professional players. Playing football is fun and can provide many health benefits, however, it also presents a high injury risk. Studies on elite and non-elite footballers have reported similar injury rates in both genders. The most common football-related injuries are the knee and ankle ligament and thigh muscle strains, Over the past two decades, significant advancement has been made in the field of injury prevention in football. There are used trials to prevent specific injuries, as ankle sprain, ACL injuries, hamstring strains, etc. On the other hand, there are created programs designed to prevent a wider spectrum of injuries like FIFA11+.

Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of a new injury prevention program on the overall injury incidence in young football players.
