Soccer is the most widely played sport in South Africa yet no study of soccer injuries in this country has apparently been published. This survey examines the relationship of injuries to factors, both intrinsic and extrinsic to the player. All injuries are classified according to type, site, severity, recurrence and manner of sustaining the injury.
