The aims of this study were to develop and test
Football Incident Analysis (FIA), a new video-based
method for match analysis that combines football-
specific and medical information, to achieve a
better understanding of the injury mechanisms and
events leading up to high-risk situations.
Furthermore, we applied FIA to describe the
characteristics of injuries and high-risk situations
in the Norwegian professional football league. We
also sought to assess how the violations of the Laws
of the Game contribute to injury and to investigate
whether the decisions made by the referees in high
risk situations correctly interpret the rules of
football. Finally, we wanted to describe the
specific injury mechanisms for ankle and head
injuries in elite male football. 1.The
interpretation of the rules of the game by the match
referees was in good correlation with the referee
expert panel 3.The most frequent mechanism for ankle
injuries was player-to-player contact with impact on
the medial aspect of the lower leg or ankle of the
injured player.4.The two most frequent injury
mechanisms for head incidents were elbow-to-head and
head-to-head contact.
