New FA Concussion Treatment Guidelines


The FA have today published new guidelines in relation to treating Concussion, with the main message being:

“Footballers who sustain a suspected concussion, either during training or in a game, should immediately be removed from the pitch and not allowed to return until the appropriate treatment has been administered.”

Concussion Facts

  • A concussion is an injury to the brain
  • All concussions should be regarded as potentially serious and managed appropriately
  • Loss of consciousness does not occur in majority of cases
  • Anyone exhibiting symptoms must immediately be removed from playing or training
  • There must be no return to play on the day of any suspected concussion

In addition, The FA have created a downloadable guide which the NWYFL recommend each club obtain, review and ensure all managers and even parents read. The document can be downloaded by clicking this linke: concussion-guidelines—a4-document (1)
