The World Congress of Sports Medicine is one of the most important events organized by the International Federation of Sports Medicine (FIMS), which is held every two years, and this time it was held for the first time in Mexico, so Guadalajara, Jalisco, received the world's top representatives in sports medicine and applied sports science.

Because of this, Chivas' Sports Science Department participated in the event. This area of the club has been a spearhead in national and international development in the field, largely due to the interaction it generates between all the sciences applied to sports, from physical preparation, through medicine, physiotherapy, nutrition and human development for the benefit of the player, and constantly shares its experience and knowledge for the growth of Mexican soccer, hence the relevance of having taken part in this global meeting of the FIMS.

The importance and transcendence of the research that this area of the club has done recently merited the invitation to actively participate with 4 conferences during the congress to expose very specific clinical cases that can offer new horizons in the treatment of sports injuries.

In addition, the importance of disseminating this knowledge via the correct channels was emphasized in these forums, as well as how effective it has been that the official Chivas website has a space dedicated to publishing such research, since there you can find the scientific manuals and procedures, together with the fact of having strategic alliances such as with the Football Science Institute (FSI).
