Football injuries unfortunately create a danger to the health of players' and also increase the perceived risk of football. This study investigated the incidence, severity and mechanisms of injury across three standards of football and suggested preventative measures to aid the reduction of such injuries. Thirty-seven matches from the 2002 World Cup, English Premiership and Non-League were analysed postmatch on recorded videotapes by two operators, using notational analysis as the tool of data collection. Training of each operator took place before any ñnal data was collected. The system measured variables identiffing if an injury resulted from a foul or non-foul situation, whether it was a result of player contact or non-player contact, the location of the injury on the body, the severity of the injury, where on the pirch, when and to whom the injury occurred.
