Rules to play Soccer
Ball in or Out of play
The soccer rules and regulations state that the ball is deemed out of the field of play when it is completely outside the goal line, touch line and goal line. if any part of the ball is still inside the line then the ball is deemed still in play (figure 1.4). The referee will indicate who is to free throw the ball back into play, this is the opposite team to the one that last touched the ball before it exited the field of play.
