This study describes the characteristics of injuries and high risk situation in the Korean professional soccer matches using the video analysis. Video analysis is a video based method describing incidents and injuries that may result in an injury using 19 variables and categories modified from the soccer matches. During the 2012 season K-league, video files from 60 matches in the Korean professional soccer matches were reviewed. Injuries and Incidents were recorded when the match was interrupted by the referee because of a suspected injury. As results, 201 incidents were recorded in 60 matches. The most injured body part was ankle. The majority of the injury risk incidents occurred during receiving the ball and heading. Midfielders appeared to be at greater risk than others and most incidents and injuries occurred during breakdown attacks and when a player was involved in duels. Also, improved ball handling skill (especially 1st touching the ball) may reduce the incidents and injuries.
