HEADING IN MATCHES TRIAL
Leagues and competitions across England have signed up to be part of the trial to remove deliberate heading in football matches at U12 level and below from the start of the 2022/23 season.
Last year, we introduced Heading Guidance in Training which eliminated or restricted heading at U12 level and below. We want to align matchday with training in these age groups and trial the removal of deliberate heading in competitions and matches.
Reducing heading at this level can support the development of more skilful players who are able to stay on the ball when in possession, contributing to the improved technical ability of our young players.
We also want to mitigate against any potential risks that may be linked to heading the ball while research is ongoing in this area.
