Thoughts of the head: UEFA makes a shocking rule

November 30 – European governing body UEFA has drawn up a concussion charter to educate game stakeholders and promote good concussion management.

“Everyone should know how to react and what to do,” UEFA medical committee chairman Tim Meyer said in a statement. “Concussion is definitely a serious injury that needs proper management and treatment. The health and safety of any player participating in club and national team competitions in Europe is of paramount importance not only to UEFA, but also to national associations around the world. across the continent. ”

The charter states what team doctors should do in the event of a player’s head injury, but also encourages the introduction of ‘education sessions’. Team doctors should explain the dangers of concussion to players, coaches and staff in line with the federation’s concussion awareness campaign.

“Although studies report a low incidence in football, people should know how to react and what to do in the event of a concussion on the field,” Meyer said. “By signing this charter, clubs and national teams will show their support for UEFA’s concussion awareness activities – and take a significant step forward in help protect their players.”

Earlier, UEFA asked the IFAB Board of Directors to consider a temporary replacement so that no concussion players could return to the field of play. Last year, IFAB approved trials with permanent concussion substitutes. The tests will run until the summer of 2022.
