2019-20 Law changes – prepare for the Spring and review!



As many of you have been hearing, and probably witnessing at certain professional matches, the IFAB has made some significant changes to the soccer Laws of the Game. This has now come through the United States Soccer Federation and US Youth Soccer for implementation beginning September 1, 2019.

We have posted the updated 2019-2020 Laws of the Game, as well as a summary of the Changes and Clarifications on our website. Click here.

It is important that you review this information to understand the implications and what is expected from the Referee. The changes will be discussed at all recertification clinics and presented at new referee courses, and we will continue to send out updates.

REMEMBER: The changes go into effect SEPTEMBER 1, 2019. Do not implement during any summer tournaments.
