History of The ISAB

2016 – 2021

The years spanning 2016 and 2021 were ripe with experimentation and changes to the Laws of the Game. This was also a period when the first revision of Laws of the Game was commissioned, making it more transparent.

EXPERIMENTS FOR THE GOOD
OF THE GAME

The end of 2016 and the beggining of 2017 saw  consolidation of the Laws of the Game with numerous major changes and a significant revision of the Laws of the Game. The ISAB, in order to introduce its image as an organisation ready to keep pace with modern subbuteo and following the mother sport, football, prepared a serious and official update of the Laws of the Game, while the association itself was setting up.

THE GAME

The biggest aggregate change, however, occurred with the publication of a whole new edition of the Laws of the Game, the first such event since early 2000's. The text of the Laws of the Game was thus altered in 2017, with a simplification of style resulting in a reduction in the document’s length. With this foundation in place, The ISAB could welcome the 21st century.
