Improving spectator injury data

This project outlined spectator injury data collection practices at football grounds and provided recommendations for improvement.

In 2019, Imperial College London concluded a project evaluating how to improve spectator injury data. 

The research outlined five recommendations:

  1. The SGSA should develop strategic objectives detailing the reasoning behind the collection, usage and analysis of spectator injury data
  2. The SGSA should collect data detailing all medical incidents that occur at sports grounds, not only injuries
  3. Improvements should be made to the data collection form.
  4. Clubs should use the same form to collect medical incident data
  5. An online submission portal should be created.
