A goal kick is awarded to the defending team when the ball goes out of the field of play by crossing, either on the ground or in the air, the goal line, without a goal being scored, when the last person to touch the ball was from the attacking team. If the last person to touch the ball was a member of the defending side, a corner kick is instead awarded to the attackers. A corner kick is taken from whichever corner is closer to the place where the ball crossed the goal line. A goal kick is taken from anywhere in the 6-yard box.
