Get familiar with the new offside rule by FIFA. Whether you're offense or defense, you'll need to know the new offsides rule.
So what's the latest on the new offsides rule set by FIFA?In the previous offside rules, a player is considered to be offside if any part of the body with which they can legally play the ball is closer to the opponent's goal line than both the ball and the second-last opponent (usually the last player) when the ball is played to them.
This new offside rule change suggests that the whole body of the attacking player must be ahead (closer to the goal line) of the defender for an offside to be called. This means that if any part of the attacker's body that can play the ball is level with the last defender, the attacker is considered onside.
This would be a significant shift from the current interpretation of the offside law. This change would lead to fewer offside calls, as more leeway would be given to attacking players, thus potentially leading to more goals in matches. The thinking behind such a change might be to promote more offensive play and make the game more exciting for spectators. However, it could also make the game harder to referee accurately and may tilt the balance of the game more in favor of attacking players.
