LOTG 2017/2018 Now Available


The IFAB has published the new LOTG for 2017 2018.

Although this year's revisions are not nearly as numerous as last year, there are still some significant changes.

We will be talking about the changes at our chapter meeting in August. In the meantime, I am suggesting that everyone get an advance look at the new book. This can be downloaded and viewed as a PDF by going to the IFAB site: . Make sure to get the right version as the 2016 2017 version is also posted.

Remember that the new laws are effective as of 01 June 2017. However, since we are technically in our "off season", the exact date of implementation will be up to the individual leagues. Some summer tournaments may likely be following the new laws, others may be following the 2016 2017 laws. If in doubt, ask the tournament assignor which rules apply. By the start of the fall season, we should be under the new Laws.

Happy Reading
