Common Injuries

American Football is a tough contact sport and it is easy to be seriously hurt whilst playing. Players have often needed major surgery to repair otherwise career ending injuries.

Concussions are also a common problem for many players and, while the theory that they are related to permanent brain injury has been denied by The Concussions Committee of the National Football League, some statistics show that retired Professional Football Players do suffer from these types of injuries.

The most common cause of injury among Players is from tackling, and the injuries sustained can affect the Players for the rest of their lives.

Sprains, torn ligaments, contusions, dislocated joints, suppressed nerves and concussions are all common injuries for players of the sport.

Popular Destinations

American Football is rapidly gaining popularity outside of the United States and is being played across Europe and the rest of the World.

While obviously United States and Canada remain the home of the sport, American Football Association in Japan was established in the 1930's.

There is a European League featuring teams from Scotland, England, Spain, The Netherlands and Germany.

American Football Equipment

In order to minimise the risk of causing permanent harm, it is vitally important to wear the correct protective gear when participating in American Football.
