FLORINDO, Alex Antonio; FARIAS JUNIOR, José Cazuza de; WELLS, Jonathan Charles Kingdon  e  HALLAL, Pedro Curi. Epidemiology of recreational football in Brazil: prevalence and association with risk factors for chronic diseases and self-rated health in adults. Motriz: rev. educ. fis. [online]. 2013, vol.19, n.1, pp.224-230. ISSN 1980-6574.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1980-65742013000100023.

The aim of this study was to describe the social and health characteristics of adults who practice football for recreation in adult living in Brazil. This was a cross-sectional study using data from the VIGITEL Surveillance System. In 2006, 54,369 interviews were carried out with adults. Individuals were classified in three groups: inactive in leisure-time; recreational football participants: one/ two times per week or three or more times per week. We ran descriptive analysis and binary logistic models. Recreation footballers in Brazil are mostly young men of low schooling levels. The southeastern region had the greatest proportion of practitioners in Brazil. Most footballers practiced once or two times per week (75.9%), for 60 minutes or more per day (87.7%), and used public locations (94.2%). Football players had less obesity and poor self-rated health compared with inactive. Football practice seems to provide health and wellbeing benefits, independent of the weekly frequency.
