Andy Paschalidis – The Heartbeat of Football

Mark Levy & Mark Riddell

Heartbeat of Football (HOF) is a not-for-profit organisation established in early 2016 by Andy Paschalidis. It aims to promote healthy hearts in sport via player education, the minimisation of health risks and the installation of defibrillators on all sporting fields around the country.

Initially, the focus will be on football codes. In Australia, it is believed there have been 10 cases of heart-related deaths related to amateur football in the past two years.

There is a tendency to focus on health issues only after a tragedy. Heartbeat of Football would like to change this by proactively preparing as many people as possible for such an event as ever-increasing members of community see the benefits of, and enjoy taking part in, amateur sport.

Andy Paschalidis established Heartbeat of Football in early 2016. He wanted to promote healthy hearts in sport via player education, the minimisation of health risks and the installation of defibrillators on all sporting fields around the country.
