“It was really well organised and I not only enjoyed the presentation content but also much appreciated the atmosphere, which was both relaxed and professional, a tricky balance to pull off.  The FMA team were exceptionally approachable and efficient and for whom no question was too much trouble.  Thank you for helping facilitate a great weekend.

“I  just wanted to say what a fantastic event it was this year that cultivated an integrated learning experience through collaborating with Science in football. All the presenters were excellent with exceptional keynote speakers”

Scott McAllister - Manchester City Women's FC

“The awards dinner was a great opportunity to network with new faces and catch up with old with some outstanding contributions to football by all the winners.”

The FMA CONFERENCE & AWARDS will be celebrating its 5th year in 2018!  Every year the event has grown in numbers and last year trade exhibitors welcomed over 250 delegates including key decision makers in the professional game.  We can only expect this number to rise as we forge relationships with important bodies within professional football.   As well as being an outstanding educational event with exceptional speakers we also have the FMA Awards evening.  This is the only awards event for medical & science practitioners within football.

Here are some quotes from last year’s delegates:

“Thanks for a great conference and once again thanks for being shortlisted for the League  2 award. It gives the department a real boost. In our case the publicity given spurred our supporters trust to donate nearly £4000 for equipment.”

“I would like to thank everyone connected with the FMA for all the hard work that goes in to making the conference the successful event it as become.  The awards evening was very special and emotional to see the association and both football clubs medical staff, along with Notts County, a fantastic gesture dedicating the award following the sad passing of Matty Salmon and his club, Mansfield Town Football Club.”

“The awards dinner was a great opportunity to network with new faces and catch up with old with some outstanding contributions to football by all the winners.”
