FIFA

A group of parents and former soccer players has filed a class-action lawsuit against FIFA, the sport’s international governing body, alleging it hasn’t done enough to protect players against concussions.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in California also names the U.S. Soccer Federation and American Your Soccer Organization.

The plaintiffs aren’t asking for money, but they’re demanding changes to the rules — from limiting the number of headers by youth to allowing medical substitutions while players get evaluated for potential concussions.
