The Back Pass Rule

Recommended Posts

My source at FIFA has information that the back pass rule is going to change in time for the Euros next year. I presume that UEFA will comply.

Thid has been under consideration since the unfortunate incident with Hugo Lloris in the world cup final in 2018.

Yes, if things like this happen in games like that, the rules change. Remember, the back pass rule went into effect in EURO 92 as a result of the time wasteing in the final at Italia 90.

There will be stipulations however. The goalkeeper will only be able to pick up a back pass in the 6 yard box, where there is pressure and when it would be unfair for the keeper to rely only on ball control skills with his feet. The same rules will apply in the rest of the penalty area though.

Si keep an eye out for this at FIFA,com where they will make the official anouncement.
