The penalty spot or penalty mark.
If the defending team commits a foul inside their box then it is deemed a penalty.
It is called the penalty arc. It is to ensure that defenders are 10 yards from the penalty spot when a penalty kick is taken.
You are probably referring to the penalty mark.
You get a penalty when you are fouled inside the opposing team's penalty/goalkeeper's box.
The D keeps players 10yds from the penalty spot during a PK. If no D was on the top of the penalty box players would be 6yds from the spot.
The main differences are that a penalty is only taken from the penalty spot inside the box, and a free kick is taken from where the offence took place, and can happen anywhere on the pitch unless it was a penalty. The opposition is allowed to put up a wall of players to defend the free kick, in a penalty it is only the penalty taker against the goalkeeper.
1980 when a player hit a ref with his stick they threw him out and called it a penalty box
Well all you have to do you have to put the ball inside the box on the dot.
you have asked the wrong question it's called a penalty box there is no such thing as a freekick box
The only people allowed inside the 18 yard box for a penalty are the goal keeper penalty taker and referee. if any other player moves into the box before the kick is taken they penalty is retaken
Yes, "the ink spot" is located 12 yards from the goal, inside the 18 yard box
