Medical teams from the NFL and the Premier League have met in London to discuss player health and safety advancements and best practices as part of the annual NFL London games.
Staff from the NFL, the Premier League and its clubs, held a day-long summit to review the latest data, research findings across and practice across key areas including soft tissue injury reduction, mental wellness, concussion and head impacts.
The meeting brought together world-class physicians, surgeons, athletic trainers, physiotherapists and sport scientists from the leagues’ clubs and elsewhere, providing a unique opportunity for collaboration and information-sharing. The summit was the second of its kind; the inaugural medical summit between the two leagues took place in October 2021.
The NFL’s medical leadership led a delegation from the Premier League experts on a behind-the-scenes tour of the game day medical protocols and procedures used during NFL games.
