Take Home Message: The FIFA11+ program reduced injuries and improved functional performance. It is more effective if compliance and adherence are high, both of which are better if a coach educated on the program administers the program to the team.
FIFA 11+ injury prevention program is an exercise program that can be easily incorporated into a team’s warm-up to help prevent sports injury. The exercises include core stability, proprioception, dynamic stability, and plyometric strengthening and only take less than 15 minutes to complete. The authors of this systematic review aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of the FIFA11+ program in soccer players on injury risk and performance.
