Rules of the Game Edition 2014 now in force – 01.07.2014
The new edition of the IFF Rules of the Game (Edition 2014) is in force from today 1st of July 2014. The new rules can be downloaded from here.
The system for changing the game rules is found here.
One major change is allowing the footpass, which has been tested in Czech Republic and Finland and the experiences of the rule change have been positive.
Also the player´s repeated offences will be history. The reason for the penalty according to the new rules is the last offence. The teams´ repeated offences still stay in the rule book, but also in those cases the actual reason for the penalty is the last offence. There are also some small changes to the numbering of some specific rule paragraphs.
