Doping controls

Doping controls

In order to make sure football stays clean, random doping controls are conducted.

This means testing players’ blood and/or urine to make sure they are not using any prohibited substances or methods.

FIFA’s Anti-Doping Unit manages the anti-doping programme for all FIFA competitions and can ask players to take part in a doping control at any time.

The main focus is on players who are in FIFA’s international registered testing pool (IRTP) and who are either taking part in or preparing for a competition.
