FIFA has zero tolerance to doping and is committed to ensuring that football is clean. FIFA wants to uphold the values of fair play, to protect the health of players and the image of the sport as well as comply with the domestic laws of the host country during the transportation of medical supplies across borders. In football, approximately 30,000 tests are conducted annually with only 0.3% of them being positive cases. More than 85% of these cases are due to ingestion of supplements tainted with banned substances or party drugs. Steroids and hormones form approximately 0.04% of all positive cases. There is no evidence of systematic doping in football. The fight against doping in football has been a collective effort and this impressive outcome is achieved through education, controls, surveillance and policing with the collaboration of players, officials, member associations and WADA.
