Laws of the Game

Laws of the Game


The mission of FIFA is, "Football is a global sport and its rules must be interpreted and applied with absolute consistency wherever the game is played. FIFA therefore has a policy of ongoing training for its referees to ensure that refereeing standards continue to improve and the Laws of the Game are applied the same way everywhere."


FIFA's goals are the following:

  • To organize courses and seminars for instructors, referees and assistant referees at international, national and regional level;
  • To define fundamental criteria and requirements for instructors of referees and assistant referees;
  • To provide up-to-date training programs and course materials;
  • To adopt guidelines on technical support for referees and the appointment of refereeing trios from the same country or consideration for tournaments organized by FIFA;
  • To determine the tasks and responsibilities assigned to members of the Referees Committee and to advisers and instructors at tournaments organized by FIFA;
  • To revise and update the Laws of the Game and the Question & Answers' booklet under the guidance of the International Football Association Board, in a way that makes innovation possible whilst respecting tradition;
  • To devise and implement training programs that prepare both male and female referees for the most important FIFA tournaments.
