Yes it is, many serious injuries have been caused by lawful contact, such as sliding tackles where the defender has touched the ball before he makes contact with the player in posession,as long as no malicious intent is apparent.

Is Soccer a contact sport?

Yes. Contesting for the ball does involve some degree of contact which is tolerated; however, association football is not a full-contact or collision sport. Soccer is most definetly a contact sport.. It may not be as contact as football where you tackle people but in soccer there is slide tackling. I have played soccer for 11 years and have had many injuries because it is such a contact sport but I am a goalie, so it is so much more contact for me than most positions. Hope that helped! :)

This is considered contact between player and object).
