The Dr. Florian Egger (photo), from the Institute of Sports and Preventive Medicine of the University of Saar- land, Germany, is responsible for a prospective study of FIFA – Sudden Cardiac Death (FIFA-SCD), which was implemented in 2014, and which aims to record the sudden deaths that occur during soccer practice. In this register, there are no (for- tunately) notifications of SCD in Portugal in this context, but the author already has several notifica- tions from Germany, France, UK and Spain, for example. The Clínica do Dragão Espregueira Mendes Sports Centre, FIFA Medical Centre Of Excel- lence, was invited by this researcher to promote with its partners a portuguese register of SCD, with reports of the fatal cases that have occurred since 2014, or that might occur in the future, during the competition or training and up to one hour after the end of these sessions, in any age or competitive level.

The Portugal Football School, which is part of the Research and Develop- ment Unit of the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF), organized in the last month of January the International Scientific Conference “Football Is Medicine”.
