You would have noticed a number of law changes this year such as kicking the ball backwards at kick-offs, different considerations on what constitutes a red card for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity and players are allowed to stay on the field after treatment if the opposition player was cautioned or sent off for the incident. These new laws are part of 90 plus new Laws of the Game changes introduced for the 2017 season.
The International Football Association Board (IFAB) has released law change summary for 2016/2017 about the new and revised laws.
