  • THE PENALTY

    A penalty kick is awarded against a team which commits one of the ten offences for which a direct free kick is awarded, inside its own penalty area and while the ball is in play.
    A goal may be scored directly from a penalty kick.

    Additional time is allowed for a penalty kick to be taken at the end of each half or at the end of periods of extra time.
