The Rules of ‘offside’ in football

The Rules of ‘offside’ in football

One of the most controversial rules in king sports is the offside situation. Sometimes judgments from the officials in offside situations can change the outcome of the game. Let’s learn about some of the provisions in offside rules through the article below.

The offside rule is derived from the rules of football made by British public schools in the nineteenth century.

1. How is the ‘offside’ rule defined?

According to FIFA rules, a player is deemed offside if the ball is brought forward (to the opposite half of the court), and no player from the opposing team separates the player. and the keeper.

When offside, a player is not considered an offense. It is essentially the moment when a player is suddenly in an offside position without realizing or trying to play the ball. They will be considered to be ‘actively involved in playing football’.

If the player is in a offside situation, the line referee will raise the flag high. At that time, the referee on the field will blow the whistle to stop the ball from playing again.

2. What Happens After A Player Is Strictly ‘offside’

There is no penalty for a player being caught offside.

The only penalty is that the ball will be returned to the opposing team to start over as a free kick at a fixed offside point at half of their yard.

3. Situations that a player is offside

A player is not offside if he receives the ball in his half of the court from a partner or is another player from the opposing team.

An attacking player cannot be blown offside if the opposing player passes the ball to them in the other half of the court.

In the case if the player is in the other half of the opponent’s court but receives the ball in the opposite playing position (ie turning away from the opponent’s goal), regardless of which opposing team player is between them and the goalkeeper or No, they can keep going.

And regardless of the position, the player is not offside if he receives the ball directly from a goal, corner kick or throw-in.

To get the offside position set by the opposing team, the player can turn around to take the ball, or step 1-2 steps behind the opponent’s defender to receive the ball. This is one of the ways to break the extremely clever offside trap of many strikers and midfielders.
