Middle

The Penalty Area

A penalty area is defined at each end of the field: Two lines are drawn at right angles to the goal line, 16.5 m from the inside of each goalpost. These lines extend into the field of play for a distance of 16.5 m and are joined by a line drawn parallel with the goal line. Within each penalty area a penalty mark is made 11 m from the midpoint between the goalposts. An arc of a circle with a radius of 9.15 m from each penalty mark is drawn outside the penalty area.

Flagposts

A flagpost not less than 1.5 m high, without a pointed top and a flag is placed at each corner.

The Corner Arc

A quarter circle with a radius of 1 m from each corner flagpost is drawn inside the field of play.

Goals

Goals consist of two upright posts equidistant from the corner flagposts and joined at the top by a horizontal crossbar.

The distance between the posts is 7.32 m and the distance from the lower edge of the crossbar to the ground is 2.44 m.

Both goalposts and the crossbar do not exceed 12 cm. The goal lines are the same width as that of the goalposts and the crossbar. The goalposts and crossbars must be white.

Safety

Goals must be anchored securely to the ground. Portable goals may only be used if they satisfy this requirement.

Decisions of the international FA board

1. If the crossbar becomes displaced or broken the play is stopped until it has been repaired or replaced in position.

Conclusion

if the ball does not enter the goal, the kick is retaken

A team-mate of the player taking the kick enters the penalty area or moves in front of or within 9.5 m of the penalty mark:

  • the referee allows the kick to proceed
  • if the ball enters the goal, the kick is retaken
  • if the ball does not enter the goal, the kick is not retaken

A team-mate of the goalkeeper enters the penalty area or moves in front of or within 9.15 m of the penalty mark:

  • the referee allows the kick to proceed
  • if the ball enters the goal, a goal is awarded
  • if the ball does not enter the goal, the kick is retaken

A player of both the defending team and the attacking team infringe the Laws of the Game therefore the game is retaken

If, after the penalty kick has been taken: The kicker touches the ball a second time (except with his hands) before it has touched another player:

  • an indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team, the kick to be taken from the place where the infringement occurred

The kicker deliberately handles the ball before it has touched another player:

  • a direct free kick is awarded to the opposing team, the kick to be taken from the place where the infringement occurred  

The ball is touched by an outside agent as it moves forward:

  • the kick is retaken

The ball rebounds into the field of play from the goalkeeper, the crossbar or the goalposts, and is then touched by an outside agent:

  • the referee stops play
  • play is restarted with a dropped ball at the place where it touched the outside agent
