For the remainder of this season in USA…The Build out Line rule will include this wording….
Defensive players will remain behind the build out line until the ball is put in play by the Goalkeeper,
or put in play by a goal kick.
* Due to the rule about the ball being live once it crosses the 18yrd box, being eliminated, and balls can
be played by attacking team within the penalty box…the above rule comes in line with when the
ball is LIVE and can be played by attacking team….
We can revisit this rule for next season and change it if we like to be more in line with the spirit of the
game when BUILDING OUT OF THE BACK…
