This study investigated the weekly prevalence of groin problems over a 3-week football pre-season, compared to a 39-week competitive in-season. We registered time-loss groin injuries, and self-reported weekly groin-pain in 17 amateur male football teams (386 players). The average weekly prevalence of groin problems (prevalence ratio (PR)) was 1.8 times higher (95% CI 1.6 to 2.0) during pre-season (21%) compared to in-season (12%). We found a higher weekly prevalence (PR 1.8; 95% CI 1.6 to 2.1) of groin problems without time loss, during the pre-season (19%) compared to the in-season (10%), but no significant difference in the weekly prevalence of groin problems with time loss (PR 1.5; 95% CI 1.0 to 2.4). Attention should be given to optimal load progression, and early implementation of preventive measures during the football pre-season to reduce the prevalence of groin problems in both pre- and in-season.
