World Congress on Science and Football

May 24, 2023 - May 26, 2023

On behalf of the organizing committee it’s a great pleasure to announce that the World Congress on Science and Football will be held in Groningen, The Netherlands.

We believe that all the necessary ingredients are available in Groningen to make the Congress a success; over 400 years of academic tradition, applied science, entrepreneurship, a young population, great facilities, a charming and compact environment, a rich football culture and close collaborations with the national football federation, professional and amateur football clubs in the Netherlands.

Enhance performance, engage society

The congress slogan ‘Enhance performance, engage society’ illustrates the many opportunities to translate knowledge and innovation in the domain of football performance towards activities and initiatives to increase sports participation and public health from grass roots to old age.

All presentations and activities will be in line with the overall theme of the congress ‘Enhance performance, Engage society’ and cover all codes of football, including association football (soccer), futsal, rugby, American football, Australian rules football and more.
