In 2015, the U.S. Soccer Federation decided to ban heading for young athletes (children under 10 years of age).

What the experts are saying

“Football faces a huge challenge in tackling brain injuries — including changing the mindset of players who are prepared to stay on the pitch until they cannot walk any more.”

Dr Willie Stewart, University of Glasgow

English football will introduce heading guidance across every level of the professional and amateur game from the start of the 2021-22 season.
