About the Event
A game which involves kicking a ball into a rectangular goal with a net. Players will generally score with their feet, but can actually use any part of their body apart from their hands and arms. The game always starts with a kick off from the centre mark of the pitch
Each team has a designated goalkeeper, who is permitted to use their hands and arms within a marked area, to try and prevent the opposition team from scoring.
Various other rules are in place to prevent foul play or unsportsmanlike conduct, e.g. the offside rule (in 9v9 and 11v11), which prevents attacking players from waiting by the opposition’s goal, so they are best placed to shoot when the ball comes to them.
