Rules and regulations of Football
By. Uly Panettieri
The maximum number of substitutes in most leagues is 6.
The goal keeper cannot touch the ball with his hands if a team mate passes it to him (excluding headers).
Cards: red card=straight send off. yellow card=warning (2 yellows equal send off).
Offside: if the ball is passed to you whiskey you are behind the last opposition player (if you are on the oppositions side of the pitch). =free kick from offside position.
Substitutions: in a league game there is usually 3 permitted substitutes unless it is a friendly game.
Injuries: if a player is injured he can be subbed off or rested on the side of the pitch until the referee blows him on.
Fouls:if a foul is committed within your own box they will get a penalty. If a foul is suspected to be professional (intentional) they will most likely be sent off, a tackle from behind will definitely result in a card.
Referees: if a referee accidentally interrupts the game (touching the ball or standing in front of a player) the game will continue. If you talk back to the referee he can yellow or red card you.
