This chapter summarizes current data related to the epidemiology of soccer-related injuries and injury prevention programs designed to reduce the risk of these injuries. Studies regarding the Prevent Injury and Enhance Performance (PEP) program and the 11+ program (FIFA 11+) are summarized. A newer study on the video analysis of ACL injury mechanisms is detailed. Compliance with training is demonstrated to be a critical component of injury prevention efforts.
