Laws of the Game

2020/21

1. Number of players

A match is played by two teams, each with a maximum of eleven figures / players; one figure must be the goalkeeper. There are two types of goalkeeper. These are the “Arms” & “Legs” goalkeeper. The two types considered as an one figure. A match may not start or continue if either team has fewer than seven players.

If a team has fewer than seven players because one or more players has deliberately left the field of play, the referee is not obliged to stop play and the advantage may be played, but the match must not resume after the ball has gone out of play if a team does not have the minimum number of seven players.

If the competition rules state that all players and substitutes must be named before kick-off and a team starts a match with fewer than eleven players, only the players and substitutes named on the team list may take part in the match upon their arrival.
