Revisions to the Laws of the Game

The Laws of the Game have been revised in order to be more accessible, more easily understood by the football community, and to increase consistency of understanding, interpretation and application.

These revisions have taken effect and apply for all matches henceforth.

The MWFRA is delivering a program to educate its members about these revisions, which include information sent directly to members’ inboxes from MWFRA Branch Coach Gerry Lenihan.

These emails outline the major revisions in the Laws, the reasons for their change and their practical implications.

Members who are not receiving these emails should contact Gerry at to be included in this email list.

Further documentation is also available from IFAB:
