LAWS OF THE GAME

IFAB SOCCER RULES: 2016/2017

The Laws of the Game are the official soccer rules and interpretations for the worldwide sport. Individual leagues are permitted to modify certain sections when it comes to: size of the field of play; size, weight and material of the ball; width between the goalposts and height of the crossbar from the ground; duration of the periods of play; and substitutions.

Become familiar with the rules today, and we will send you periodical and relevant information to help your understanding. Sports rules can be very confusing at first, but we aim to lead you on the journey to understanding and interpreting game situations correctly.

Benefits to downloading the Laws of the Game:

  • The latest rules published by the international authority
  • Learn key rules about offside, fouls, and yellow and red cards
  • Gain new knowledge and understanding about soccer

The Laws of the Game were modified at the 129th Annual General Meeting of the International Football Association Board (IFAB) in Belfast (Northern Ireland) on February 28, 2015. These came into force on June 1, 2016.
