Can the FIFA11+ reduce injuries in Collegiate Male Soccer?

Does the introduction of the FIFA 11+ warm up reduce injures in Collegiate Male Soccer Players over a season?

This randomised controlled trial examines the efficacy of the FIFA 11+ warm up program for injury prevention in male collegiate soccer. Over the course of the season, the authors found significant differences between the intervention and control group in number of injuries per team and per individual.

The overall reduction in injures between the intervention and control group was found to be 46.1% (increase compliance = reduced injury risk). The number of participants who needed to be exposed to the intervention to reduce 1 injury in the intervention group (number needed to treat [NNT]) was 3.
