Features Overview

Known as football in most countries, soccer is the most popular sport in the world. In 1994 the World Cup Football Tournament came to America for the first time. In 1999 the women’s team won this prestigious event for the first time, greatly increasing America’s interest in the sport. This trend shows no sign of stopping and is expected to continue, especially among young people.

While still considered a contact sport, it’s certainly less so than others such as basketball and (American) football. By some estimates soccer players are injured 80% less than American football players. It does, however, require lots of running, much of which is full-on sprinting. Soccer also involves plenty of abrupt direction changes and a fair amount of jumping. Kicking, even using correct form, also puts unique stresses on the ankle. In short, soccer unfortunately has a fairly high incidence of lower leg, ankle, and foot injuries
