Small-sided football in schools and leisure-time sport clubs improves physical fitness, health profile, well-being and learning in children

An important editorial publication in the BJSM (the number one sports medicine journal) has been published yesterday, clearly documenting the positive impact on health when playing football regularly. The editorial is based on 10 years of F-MARC research in joint venture with the University of Copenhagen (Prof. Krustrup and Prof. Jens Bangsbo), performed in 15 countries and involved more than 150 researchers.
