Best Answer

A long corner is awarded when the the ball is played unintentionally over the baseline by the defending team. The long corner is then taken from the 25yard line and level with were the ball went off the backline.

If the long corner terminology is confusing, it should be as it is no longer taken from the corner of the pitch but at the 25yrd line parallel to the baseline, the position of the long corner free hit has changed but the terminology remains the same.
