Law 5: Soccer Referee Instructions for Player Injuries

Posted by Jason Sholl on August 04, 2017

Law 5 from the IFAB Laws of the Game establishes the basic principle that, if a soccer referee stops play because a player had been judged to be seriously injured, that player is required to leave the field for treatment and may not return to the field (assuming the player is not substituted) until after play has been restarted and only with the permission of the referee. In 2012, US Soccer Federation's guidance on this matter, based on interpretations provided by the International Board, establishes the following additional information:

  • The goalkeeper is exempt from this requirement.
  • A player who is injured may still be required to leave the field if the referee beckons medical assistance onto the field at a stoppage called for some other purpose.
  • A player who leaves the field -- with the permission of the referee, for treatment of an injury without having assistance beckoned on or for whose injury play has not been stopped -- may return before play is restarted, provided the player receives the permission of the referee.

Posted by Nick Elliott on May 15, 2017

If you’re currently officiating junior football (or soccer), then you might find this handy. Parents and spectators at junior football can often cause a problem for you as the referee. They’re passionate about seeing their children do well but this passion can sometimes overspill into something that isn’t pleasant. I’ve refereed many junior games where parents haven’t held back on letting me know how they feel about a decision I’ve made.

3 Soccer Referee Tips to Reduce Verbal Abuse

Posted by Nick Elliott on May 05, 2017

Some days I can see why football has been given the title of the beautiful game. When the sun is shining, great football is being played and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. Other days, I really struggle to see why it has been labelled with such a title. You know those games when it’s chucking down with rain, it’s windy, the ball is in the air more than it’s on the ground, and the players are on your case every time you blow your whistle. Being a referee can be very tough on these kind of days.
