If you are ever appointed to games in a new league or division for the first time, always ask yourself the following questions to ensure you are adequately prepared.
November 2015, IFAB (International Football Association Board rewrite the New Laws of the Game. On January 1, 2017. CSA (Canada Soccer Association) and OSA (Ontario Soccer Association) start to use the new Laws of the Game in the 2017 summer season; therefore, it is important to let all referees knows there are some main changes about the Law 11, Offside. In here we post some common question from professional referees about the Law 11, Offside. Moreover, if you want to learn more about the new Laws of the Game, please join us on February 27, 2017 at Chicago Pub, Alpine Plaza, 725 Ottawa St S, Kitchener, ON N2E 3H5. We will continue share Laws of the Game 2017 part #2 to all our members.
