In a ground-breaking move, the FIFA Laws of the Game is out earlier than ever before; April 13th.
Why you ask?
Great question. I’ve held off on paraphrasing FIFA articles promising some of the changes earlier this year. These will change the way we think about the game. Simply because it ain’t real until it’s on paper. That day is today.
In preparation for Euro 2016 in France, the changes have been published ahead of time for referees to study and adjust to.
There is simply far too little time for me to be able to summarise the changes but most things leave me ogling as to how I will break my routine and bubble to adapt to these changes effective next year. You must wait until your FA passes on the information about these changes.
There will undoubtedly be the few that won’t get this message and the field will be littered with inconsistencies. Please wait. Enjoy the read but wait.
“Summary” (65 pages):
It hasn’t sunk in for me but do you think IFAB has made the right move? Is football on the right path? Euro 2016 will be the biggest test of how it affects the game.
Enjoy the light reading! I know it’ll be a while before I get through all this.
thanks for the link to the download, how can i get a printed copy of this law book? I want the printed version to store in my soccer bag. thanks!!
I’m afraid the official printed version will most likely be available at this point via FIFA. FAs will come out with their own versions when they come into effect (most likely next season).
I was in contact with the IFAB not too long ago and was told that printed versions would be available for purchase directly on their website.
That’s great Steve! I’ve confirmed the same info as well. They are about to get inundated with requests when that goes up online.
where can i get a printed copy of the booklet??
Keep an eye out here or on the store for more info :). The Facebook page will post the latest updates!
Did you find where to get a printed copy of the book? If so where? Thanks, Don
