FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence Inaugurated in Tehran

The Iran Football Medical Assessment and Rehabilitation Center (IFMARC) opened on Monday Apr 25, attended by Mahmoud Goudarzi, the Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, and FIFA representatives, at Iran’s national football team training camp.

As reported by FIFA:

IFMARC is the first centre of its kind in central Asia and has been designed to provide excellence in sports medicine, rehabilitation and fitness assessment. Those using IFMARC will also be educated about injury prevention.

By signing contracts with internationally renowned medical professionals from Iran, the FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence is capable of providing the highest level of services for male and female players, match officials and coaches. It is hoped the centre will create medical and health data banks for all amateur, semi-professional and professional players, helping with research, injury prevention programs and standardization of football medicine in close cooperation with F-MARC.
