Soccer - The Object of the Game

Understanding Soccer



The aim of the game is for one team to score more goals than the opposing team.

The winning team is the team which has scored the most goals at the end of the game.

Players score a goal when they succeed in moving the whole ball over the opposing team's goal line, between the goalposts and under the crossbar.

Players may use any part of their body except their arms and hands.

The ball is out of play when it has wholly crossed the goal line or touch line - whether on the ground or in the air - and when play has been stopped by the referee.

The game is controlled by one Referee on the playing field and two assistant referees placed on opposite touchlines.
