IMPORTANT: The International Football Association Board (IFBA) Makes Changes to Laws of the Game

The International Football Association Board (the group that writes the laws of the game) announced several changes  to the laws of the game that go into effect for leagues starting play after July 1, 2012.   Of concern to Presidio League are the following:

  1. Tape on socks.   Law 4 now provides that if tape or similar material is applied to the outside of the sock, the tape must be the same color as the part of the sock it covers.   If the sock is black, then any tape on the outside of the sock must also be black.  If the sock is black with a  white stripe and the tape is applied over the white stripe, the tape must be the same color as the white stripe.    (The purpose of the rule is to prevent the use of tape which so changes the appearance of the sock as to make team identification difficult in close situations where quick decisions must be made about which team last touched the ball – such as goal kick, corner kick or throw ins..)

  2. Goals scored directly after  a dropped ball.  The laws now provide that when the ball is kicked directly into a goal after a dropped ball, the restart will be a goalkick or corner kick (depending on who kicked the ball).  Note:  the US Soccer Federation has advised that “directly” means on the first touch.  Thus, a goal may be validly scored on a dropped ball by a player dribbling and then shooting or after  taking two  touches on the ball.  Thus, the new provision will have limited effect on play.

  3. Caution for deliberate handling.      The International Board made a editorial change in an interpretation regarding when a player should be cautioned for illegally handling the ball to prevent an opponent from gaining possession.   It deleted the language that the handling must be blatant for a caution.

 


 

Presidio Soccer League develops gaming rules and regulations with the primary goal of ensuring organizational consistency and fairness.

These rules are made available and distributed to the approved Referee Associations so that our overall gaming experiences will be fair and positive.
