Other research projects of F-MARC address the injuries of
referees, the methods of age determination at youth competitions,
the use of medication and nutritional supplements during FIFA
competitions, the influence of fasting during Ramadan on
performance as well as the significance of certain environmental
conditions such as heat or altitude in football.
More recently, F-MARC extended their scope to the lay public and started to educate players, coaches and the football family on different aspects of health and prevention.
Based on scientific evidence, a section "Players' Health" on FIFA.com ( www.fifa.com/medical) now presents information on the prevention of injuries, health checks, nutrition and doping in understandable language.
Further, lay booklets have been published on "Nutrition for football", "Fight against doping in football" as well as "Health and fitness for the female football player" (see document links on the right).
