The FIFA Laws of the Game were developed to govern the specifics of match play in an effort to create consistency throughout the sanctioned soccer world. For example, these laws define what a free kick is, what offside is, or the rules for taking a kick from the penalty mark. FIFA has developed and maintains these Laws on a yearly basis. In some cases, there may be an overlap between the WYSA Rules and Regulations and the FIFA Laws of the Game so it is important to be familiar with both, especially as one may supersede the other.
