Law13. Free Kicks


   Types of free kick
      Free kicks are either direct or indirect.

   The direct free kick
      Signal
      One of the referees signals the direct free kick by keeping one arm horizontal and pointing in the direction the kick has to be taken. The referee points to the ground with his other hand to make it plain to the third referee and the timekeeper that it is an accumulated foul.

      Ball enters the goal
          • If a direct free kick is kicked directly into the opponents' goal, a goal is awarded
          • If a direct free kick is kicked directly into the team's own goal, a corner kick is awarded to the opposing team

      Accumulated fouls
          • Accumulated fouls are those penalised with a direct free kick or penalty kick mentioned in Law 12
          • The accumulated fouls committed by each team in each period are recorded in the match report
          • The referees may allow play to continue by applying the advantage if the team has not previously committed five accumulated fouls and the opposing team is not denied a goal or an obvious goalscoring opportunity
          • If they apply the advantage, the referees use the mandatory signals to indicate an accumulated foul to the timekeeper and third referee as soon as the ball is out of play
          • If extra time is played, accumulated fouls from the second period continue to accumulate during extra time

   The indirect free kick
      Signal
      The referees indicate an indirect free kick by raising their arms above their heads. They maintain their arms in that position until the kick has been taken and the ball has touched another player or goes out of play.

      Ball enters the goal
      A goal can be scored only if the ball subsequently touches another player before it enters the goal.
          • If an indirect free kick is kicked directly into the opponents' goal, a goal clearance is awarded
          • If an indirect free kick is kicked directly into the team's own goal, a corner kick is awarded to the opposing team

   Procedure
      For both direct and indirect free kicks, the ball must be stationary when the kick is taken.

   Direct free kick beginning with the sixth accumulated foul by each team
          • The player taking the free kick kicks the ball with the intention of scoring a goal and may not pass the ball to a team-mate
          • Once the free kick has been taken, no player may touch the ball until it has been touched by the defending goalkeeper, rebounded off one of the goalposts or the crossbar, or left the pitch
          • If a player commits his team's sixth accumulated foul in the opposing team's half or in his own half in the area bordered by the halfway line and an imaginary line parallel to the halfway line passing through the second penalty mark, the free kick is taken from the second penalty mark. The location of the second penalty mark is indicated in Law 1. The free kick is taken in accordance with the section entitled "Position of free kick"
          • If a player commits his team's sixth accumulated foul in his own half of the pitch between the imaginary 10m line and the goal line but outside the penalty area, the attacking team decides whether to take it from the second penalty mark or the place where the infringement occurred
