Laws Board (IFAB) 2 March 2019 AGM @ Aberdeen

This forum is for discussion relating to referees and the rules of the game. It is for constructive discussion and is NOT for taking a swipe at referees.

Referees are tireless servants of our great game and their efforts should be recognised and respected.

Laws Board (IFAB) 2 March 2019 AGM @ Aberdeen

Post by Con M »

The AGM of the International F.A. Board will be considering some of the following changes & tidyups of the Laws of the Game @ this Saturday’s AGM:

* “one shot” penalties during a game similar to penalty shootouts where a player cannot score from a rebound if the “one shot” is saved.

* the ball not having to leave the penalty area at goal kicks.

* subs having to leave the field at the nearest boundary line.

* clarification of the handball rule and taking out the word “deliberately”.

* a dropped ball being given if the ball hits the referee and a goal is scored, team possession changes or an attacking move is created.

* No subs allowed during time added for injuries or other delays like yellow or red cards.

It will be interesting to see if any of the above proposals is approved with the requisite 6 out of 8 Board votes (IFAB made up of 1 member from each of the 4 British home Nations & 4 members from FIFA representing the other 200+ member nations).
