2021 Laws of the Game Changes

February 25th, 2021

As occurs every season, new laws of the game will come into effect for the new football season in Football Far North Coast competitions, following the annual review of the laws by FIFA and IFAB (International Football Association Board).

Amongst a number of law changes last year were some significant changes to the the law relating to handling the ball and this year, the law is further refined in an effort to create more clarity. There are of course other laws that have been amended this season and we want to ensure that ALL participants and other stakeholders are aware of the law changes that will come into effect this season.

These law changes were provided to clubs in recent weeks and FFNC is also encouraging clubs to arrange for senior match officials to come and speak with players, coaches and other club stakeholders regarding these law changes and also to have a conversation about the laws of the game more generally. Senior match officials visited a number of member clubs last season (prior to the suspension to football) and we urge clubs that did not have this presentation last year or wishes for us to visit again, to contact FFNC to arrange this.
