They will try new rules in football: temporary sending-offs, body cameras and the captain as the only interlocutor with the referee


Highlights: The International Football Association Board (IFAB) has approved changes to the rules of football. The changes include the use of body cameras in official matches. The General Assembly of the IFAB will meet on March 2, 2024, to discuss the changes. The new rules will come into effect from July 1, 2024. They include the introduction of a temporary ban for players who are caught offside. The ban will be in place until the end of the current season, when it will be reviewed by a panel.

The IFAB has approved testing the new rules in official matches. Possible changes will be discussed at the General Assembly on March 2.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB), the body in charge of defining the rules of professional football that is made up of the associations of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, on Tuesday backed the proposal for temporary bans and agreed that they will begin with tryouts in official matches.

Following the annual meeting in London, the IFAB reported that progress had been made on the proposal of the advisors (a committee with former players, coaches, including Nery Pumpido, and technical advisers) for temporary bans and other measures to improve the behaviour of the players and their relationship with the refereeing authorities.

In this regard, the International Football Association Board supported testing in professional matches of temporary bans and the intention in which only the captain of a team can approach the referee to discuss the rulings.

"Members also received an update on the successful trial in which referees wore body cameras at grassroots level, which had been introduced to deter cases of serious misconduct towards referees," the club said in a statement.

Contrary to what was planned days ago, this meeting did not discuss the modification of the offside rule promoted by former French coach Arsene Wenger.

Possible changes to the regulations will be approved at the General Assembly on March 2, 2024 and any possible modifications to the Laws of the Game will be effective from July 1, 2024.

The IFAB is made up of the four British football associations (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) with one vote each, and FIFA, which encompasses the remaining 207 national associations, with four votes. In this way, the five bodies ensure that the Laws are preserved while respecting the traditions of football as well as its international reality. A three-quarters majority is required to pass a motion."
