Football Rules

 
Football has 17 laws and these are listed below. Use this as a reference for football rules with the laws of the game published here. Ideal for those wanting to learn or not sure of the answers. Rules such as the offside rule, is always a good topic of conversation to start with.

When is the player offside?
 
And when is the player not offside?
 
These questions obviously only matter to those playing 9v9 or 11v11 as mini soccer doesn't use the offside rule.
Over the next coming months this resource of rules is planned to cover all aspects of the game of football.
