Resumen

Background: To know the influence of televised football on the use of emergency department (ED).

Patients and methods: We assessed the number, demographic characteristics and acuity of patients attended during the broadcast of football matches played by FC Barcelona during Champions' League (n = 12), and they were compared with days without televised football (n = 12).

Results: Televised football was associated with a decrease in visits to ED (­18%; p = 0.002). Such a decrease was observed for all ED units, but only for traumatology unit reached statistical significance (­28%; p = 0.006). Decay of ED visits were mainly due to a decrease of low-acuity consults (­30%; p = 0.04).

Conclusion: There is a significant decrease on ED use associated with televised football.
