FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence

Tehran

IFMARC will be the revolutionary centre for medical and rehabilitation practices in Iran. It will be used by all national team’s in their prospected sports as well as professional athletes.

The centre is designed as a multifunctional centre that will have a center for performance excellence, gym, recovery and regeneration, rehabilitation, treatment rooms and hydrotherapy.

What makes the IFMARC centre stand out is its unique location. It has access to four football pitches, one artificial turf, a beach football pitch, three hotels, as well as the Azadi Olympic Complex, which has several sports training centres and federations such as wrestling, volleyball and cycling.

The IR Iran Football Federation is heavily involved in IFMARC activities which demands all teams in the league have a pre-season medical test that has to be taken at the centre.

IFMARC has internationally recognised female and male doctors and physiotherapists that provide the highest level of quality services. All doctors and physicians are continually trained to ensure that the centre stays at the forefront of medical advancement and rehabilitation.

The centre will provide services for players, referees and coaches for both male and female professionals. The services will be separated into three fields:

  • Sports medicine
  • Rehabilitation
  • Fitness and performance assessments

The centre’s aim is to reach optimum levels of services and research. For example, creating a medical and health data bank for all players in all levels of play in order to use the information for research, injury prevention programmes and also to standardise football medicine in close cooperation with F-MARC. The centre will also aim to evaluate medical elements in both health and fitness alongside the pre-season and mid-season tests. There will be rehabilitation of football and other sport injuries under the guidance of the specialists as well as integrating educational activities for injury prevention for players, coaches, referees and other related staff.

IFMARC is the first centre of its kind in all Central Asia which several countries can easily access. The centre will be open to all international teams and players who need IFMARC services.

As of April 2015, IFMARC has signed agreements with 13 universities, hospitals and research centres in Iran for a period of five years. These agreements will help foster research that will evaluate the players more precisely.
