Soccer is one of the most popular sports around the world. The large number of practitioners, associated with technical and tactical characteristics, make it subject to a large number of injuries. Therefore, it is necessary the continuous training of health professionals who act as rescuers in soccer matches. In addition, due to a series of factors, there is currently an increase in the number of potentially more serious injuries, especially concussions. This has caused concern not only for health professionals, but also for the institutions that regulate the practice of sport. In professional soccer, there is a minimum requirement of material and human resources that guarantee greater safety for competitors, something not observed in amateur. The dissemination of basic first aid knowledge is extremely relevant and should cover the entire public involved in the sport.
