Rules & Regulation

Game Rules


    • Team Size: Indoor football is typically played with teams consisting of 5 players on each side, including a goalkeeper.
    • Playing Area: The game is played on a smaller enclosed field, usually a hard surface, with specific boundary lines marked on the floor.
    • No Out of Bounds: Unlike outdoor football, the ball is not considered out of bounds if it hits the walls or ceiling. Instead, players can use the walls to their advantage, including rebounding the ball off the walls for strategic plays.
    • Substitutions: Substitutions are typically made “on the fly” with players entering and leaving the field through designated substitution zones near the team benches.
    • No Offside: Indoor football often does not enforce the offside rule, allowing players to position themselves anywhere on the field.
    • No Slide Tackling: Slide tackling is usually not allowed in indoor football due to the hard playing surface. Instead, players must use their feet and body positioning to regain possession of the ball.
    • Reduced Playing Time: Indoor football matches often have shorter game durations compared to outdoor football, typically consisting of two halves ranging from 20 to 30 minutes each.
    • Restarting Play: When the ball goes out of play or a foul is committed, play is restarted with a kick-in (replacing throw-ins), kick-off, goal kick, or corner kick, depending on the specific situation.
    • Fouls and Free Kicks: Fouls are penalized with free kicks, either direct or indirect, depending on the severity of the offense. The distance between the ball and the defensive wall during a free kick is typically fixed.
    • Penalty Kicks: Penalty kicks are awarded for more severe fouls or deliberate handball offenses. The attacking player takes a direct shot from a designated spot, usually a short distance away from the goal.
