Abstract: 

The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and causes of acute injuries in collegiate soccer players (age 22.7±2.5 years, weight 71.4±5.9 kg, height 177.8±5.9 cm), who participated in Universities Premier League Soccer Competitions. A questionnaire which designed by Fuller and co-workers (2006) was used. Variables such as time of injury, location of injury, causes of injury, and mechanism of injury were considered and recorded during competition. Paired t-test and Chi-square test were used for analysis of data.
The results of this study showed that the number of injuries in knee, ankle, head and face area was greater than other area. Although the most of injuries occurred in the end of each half but the differences were not significant (P>0.05). There was a significant difference in injury incidence between preferred (n=23) and non-preferred leg (n=9) (t=2.70, P<0.05). Furthermore, midfield players (n=17) and defenders (n=17) had the most injuries and 35.3 percent of these injuries were re-injury. Incidence of contact injuries (n=42) was significantly more than non-contact injuries (n=9) (t=6.77, P<0.05).
In conclusion, collegiate soccer player had more injury in lower extremities although not significant. In addition to this they had more injuries in preferred leg than non preferred leg and the highest numbers of injuries were contact injury. This information can be helpful for coaches and medical personal who designing prevention programme for soccer players.
