Rules for goalkeepers and offsides have been changed.
Before, if the soccer ball went out of bounds, the first person to get to the ball obtained possession. This is why the sidelines are called the touchlines.
Soccer does not have twenty rules. Soccer has 17 rules, called the Laws of the Game.
What happened was that at the time it was called football but it was actually played like soccer. When they changed the rules to football (which then made it more like rugby), they kept the old football rules and just called that sport soccer.
no the rules are all the same
what are Flag post Rules of SOccer
The rules of soccer are the same anywhere you go.
Like any sport, rules in soccer do change, so they have changed lots of times since the game was first given formal rules.
The soccer rules are made by F.I.F.A, they can only change them.
What would soccer be without rules?
