Reflection on Players Safety

Football is a sport where physical contact plays a key role and some degree of injury risk must be accepted. However, the intensity of tackling is obviously directly related to the likelihood and severity of potential damage to colleague players. And let us remind that we are not professional players. We would like all captains share a constructive reflection within their teams, in order to avoid excessive force and minimize consequent lessons.

In any case, we have instructed referees on the amateur spirit of the championships and to be very strict at penalizing tackles with excessive force or risk of injury.

CODE OF CONDUCT

Football is or should be a game of gentlemen. A championship of Medical Doctors can only be an example of education and respect towards colleague players and referees. Misconduct of any kind is not accepted and will be strictly punished by referees.
