The United States pioneers from 2015

Scotland would be the first in Europe to implement this measure, after the United States which launched it in 2015, following resounding scandals of former professional sportsmen struck by dementia, notably in American football. In October, a Glasgow University study of former Scottish footballers found that they were 3.5 times more likely to die from neurodegenerative disease than the average.

“There are questions about the age limit, according to speculation, it would be 12 years. This means that a 13 year old child can make heads without risk. How do we know that this is the case? ”Reacted in a press release Peter McCabe, president of the Headway association which fights against neurodegenerative diseases. “So there is an urgent need to do more research to understand what the risks, if any, are of kicking the head in a modern soccer ball,” he adds.
