Italian Sporting Certificates

Italian Sporting Certificates

If you are planning on participating in a competitive sport in Italy we will be happy to help. Whilst the certificates may look very simple, they require a thorough medical assessment.

You must complete your medical assessment well before your event, so you have adequate time to complete the mandated tests and/or any additional tests which may be required if abnormalities are discovered during the assessment.

Events such as cycling, swimming, marathons or an event regulated by Italian National Sport Federation, CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee), and/or FIDAL (Italian Federation of Athletics) may require you to have a certificato sportivo agonistico.

What does the medical exam include?

  • A full medical examination including blood pressure
  • A urine dipstick test
  • A resting ECG
  • Referral for stress/exercise ECG
  • Certificate
  • Spirometry

How much will the appointment cost?

The total cost of the medical is £499. You will pay a deposit to hold a 30-minute appointment slot and will be charged the remaining balance at the time of your appointment. This fee includes an Exercise ECG with our Cardiology Partners. Please note, this will not be conducted onsite at London Doctors Clinic and will require a separately scheduled appointment in the Harley Street District.

Will you definitely be able to sign me off as fit to participate?

Whilst we are able to sign most participants as fit to compete, if abnormalities are discovered, we may not be able to do so until additional tests are completed. This may include but is not exclusive to and echocardiogram or further cardiac tests.

You will still be liable for the full costs of the medical assessment, please note, you will be liable for the full cost of the medical even if you are not deemed fit to compete.

Please note, you will be liable for the full cost of the medical even if you are not deemed fit to compete.

What things may prevent me from being signed off?

  • Very High/Uncontrolled Blood pressure
  • ECG Abnormalities (Arrythmias or other electrical abnormalities of the heart)
  • Abnormal Lung Function Test

How long is it valid for?

The certificate can only be issued once all of the investigations are completed and deemed satisfactory. Certificates are valid for 1 year.
