A message from Peter Krustrup (T:@SduSport) following the 2020 Football Is Medicine Conference:
“Football is an intense, versatile and effective training type. It is fun and social, it is a global language with enormous popularity, and that is what makes football a very strong tool in global health promotion. Football is medicine! It is time for pupils to play, people to play and patients to play!” — Peter Krustrup, Professor of Sport and Health Sciences at the Department of Sport Science and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark.
