Soccer is the world's most popular sport, with over 200 million participants world wide. Fractures account for only 4-9% of acute injuries, and hip fracture-dislocation is extremely uncommon. The potentially serious long term sequelae require that team physicians have an awareness of this injury. Two cases of traumatic hip fracture-dislocation are here reported in recreational soccer players sustained by low energy mechanisms. Prompt reduction and fixation are important to produce a stable and congruent joint.
