List Of Footballers Who Died While Playing Football

News Hub Creator

The following is a list of association footballers who died while playing , either directly from injuries sustained during a game, or after being taken ill on the pitch.

Following an increase in deaths, both during matches and training, the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) considered mandatory cardiac testing, already in place for years in some countries, such as Italy.

By 2009, FIFA player Pre-Competition Medical Assessment (PCMA) included family history, heart rhythm, sounds, and electrocardiogram (ECG) results.

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) required extensive medical tests, including ECG and echocardiogram for players in the Europa League 2011–12. Constant monitoring has been advised.
