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! :)
