What is the penalty for changing the goalkeeper without the referee's permission?

There are two answers to this question. First, if you're wanting to know about a substitute coming from the bench to play in the game, then the goalkeeper is treated the same as any other player: both players will be cautioned at the next stoppage of play, and if the incoming substitute interferes with play or the referee decides to stop play for this infraction, the opposing team is awarded an indirect free kick. If an outfield player switches positions with the goalkeeper (probably switching jerseys and gloves as well) without the referee's permission, the referee will allow play to continue and caution both players at the next stoppage of play. Note that the player wearing the differently-colored jersey is considered to be the goalkeeper, and if that jersey is worn by another player, that player becomes the goalkeeper with or without the referee's permission (but will still get a yellow card for his trouble), which means that the "new" goalkeeper can make a save without being guilty of a handling foul so long as he is clearly identified as being the one and only current goalkeeper for his team by virtue of the jersey.
