Law 17 - Corner Kick

Printer-friendly version

When the ball has completely crossed the goal line, but does not score a goal, after being last touched by a player from the defending team, it is put back into play with a direct kick taken by a player of the attacking team from the corner of the field nearest to where the ball went out of play. The corner markers may not be moved. The ball must be placed on or within the corner arc. Defenders must remain at least 10 yards from the ball until the corner kick is taken.
