The ISAFA 2016 is with no exception, a unique event, where academics gathered from different parts of the globe will be exchanging their knowledge to building the future generation of football professionals and modelling the coming stars in the run-up to the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar and beyond.”

The ISAFA acts in this domain. Its mission is to ‘To share science-based knowledge around football between scientists, technicians, medicals and field practitioners.’ It focuses on the scientific aspects behind football and to render this sport mostly based on clear science-based sport to creating champions. There is no doubt that many sports, such as, athletics, swimming, cycling, motor sports and have taken advantage of scientists’ input in order to break records with milliseconds…. It is time for the football sector to take more advantage of these sciences in to progress.

The Turkish Ambassador said: “I’m very pleased to see such an important event organised at QU as Qatar drives its preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. I’m looking forward to getting the recommendations of ISAFA into reality”.
