English football introduces new guidance for heading

English football will introduce heading guidance across every level of the professional and amateur game from the start of the 2021-22 season.

The new guidance, which is specifically focused on training sessions where the majority of heading occurs, has been designed to meet the requirements of each level of English football. The guidance will be applicable to clubs in the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League, FA Women’s Championship, the National League System, the Women’s Football Pyramid Tiers 3 and below, all grassroots football, and across the England national teams.

The new heading guidance has been agreed between the FA, Premier League, EFL, the PFA and the LMA.
