  • Ninh explains, the Rules of Association Football. Association Football, more commonly known

  • assoccerin North America and Football pretty much everywhere else in the world,

  • is a game played with two teams of 18 players, with 11 players taking the field at any one

  • time. The object of the game is for your team to

  • score more goals than the opposing team. To score a goal, you must put ball into your

  • opponent’s goal. For it to count, the whole of the ball must

  • cross the goal line. In football, you are allowed to touch the

  • ball with every part of your body except your arms.

  • The main ways to move the ball is to kick the ball to a team mate which is known as

  • a pass, or run with the ball whilst controlling it

  • with your feet, known as dribbling. When the ball is in the air, players can head

  • or chest the ball as well.

  • Teams will usually orchestrate passes and dribbles so that the ball travels up the field

  • so that they can score. The defending team will try and stop you by

  • tackling. The can intercept passes, block shots or try

  • and kick the ball away from you and move the ball in the other direction so that they can

  • score themselves. A defender must be careful here, as if the

  • referee decides that they made contact with the player without touching the ball, or made

  • contact without trying to win ball, he can award a foul against them.

  • Fouls usually lead to free kicks, but can also lead to a yellow card which is a warning,

  • or a red card where you are sent off the pitch. Two yellow cards equals one red card.

  • The game is played in two halves of 45 minutes, for a total playing time of 90 minutes. There’s

  • a 15 minute break at half time. Unlike most other sports, in football when

  • there is a stoppage in play - the clock does not stop.

  • Instead, a referee will add the amount of time all the stoppages last for, and they

  • will play this asadded timeat the end of each half.

  • Highest score at the end of 90 minutes plus added time, wins.

  • There are ties in Football, and if both teams have the same amount of goals at the end of

  • time, this is declared as a draw. Football is a really simple game and that’s

  • basically it, but there’s a few more things youll need to understand before playing

  • or watching a game. For example.

  • Substitution. A team can change up to 3 players during a

  • game. To do this, they must inform the fourth official

  • of who they want to take off and who they want to put on. Only in a stoppage of play

  • can a substitution be made. A team cannot change a player if he has already

  • been sent off.

  • Hand ball If you happen to touch the ball with an arm,

  • forearm, elbow or hand, the referee will callhand-ballagainst you, and possession

  • of the ball is awarded to the other team. If you commit a hand-ball in your own penalty

  • box, the other team will be awarded a penalty kick.

  • Penalty Kick If a defender handles the ball in the penalty

  • box, or brings down an attacker WITH A SCORING CHANCE in the box, the referee will award

  • a penalty kick to the other team. The ball will be placed on the spot and any

  • attacking player can try and score with one kick against the goalie.

  • If a shot is scored, it counts as a goal. If the shot is missed and it goes out, it’s

  • a goal kick, if the shot is blockedthe ball is in

  • play and anybody can touch it.

  • Throw in, goal kick, corner kick and free kick.

  • If the ball leaves the field of play, the ball is awarded to the team who did not touch

  • it last.

  • If the ball leaves the sides of the field, a throw in is awarded to the other team.

  • If you touched it last and it goes out behind your opponent’s goal line, a goal kick is

  • awarded to the other team. If you touched it last and it goes out behind

  • your own goal line, a corner kick is awarded to the other team.

  • In the event of a foul, a referee can award a free kick to the team who was fouled.

  • Off-side. Ah, the dreaded offside rule. To put it in

  • simple terms, Imagine a line that extends from your opponents

  • last defender. You cannot be past that imaginary line when

  • a pass is being played into you. If you are past the last defender before a

  • ball is passed to you, this is offside and will result in the other team being awarded

  • the ball. For you to be onside, you must be in front

  • of (or parallel) to the last defender when a pass is played towards you.

  • This is a lot to take in, but it’s one of the easier sports to understand.

  • If you watch a game or two, youll probably pick up the rules just after a few matches.
