IMPORTANT NEW IFAB changes to the laws of the game

for Fall 2019 Season:

  1. Players may leave the field from the nearest point to where they are during a substitution.
  2. Coaches can and will be shown cards for cautions and send-offs. ASK-TELL-DISMISS
  3. Team who wins the coin toss can pick ball or direction.
  4. Drop balls inside penalty area are dropped to the keeper. Outside the penalty area, DB goes to player of last team to touch the ball, all players must be 4.5 yards away from the ball.
  5. If the ball hits the ref and goes to the other team, starts an attack or scores, then a DB.
  6. Hand Balls will be called, even if accidental, if… a goal is scored or a goal scoring opportunity is created after hitting an attacking players hand, the ball hits the hand of a player who has made themselves bigger, or if the hand is above player’s shoulders.
  7. Attackers are not allowed with 1 yard of a wall with more than two defenders. Violation at the time of the kick is an indirect free kick for the defending team.
  8. Goal kicks and free kicks from inside a penalty area are considered in play when the ball moves (the ball does not have to leave the penalty area to be considered in play) and opposing team must still be outside the penalty area.
  9. During penalty kicks, the keeper cannot be moving, nor touching the bar/posts/net, and must have one foot on the goal line when kick is taken.
