WE ARE THE INDEPENDENT GUARDIANS OF THE LAWS OF THE GAME.
The mission of The IFAB is to serve the world of football as the independent guardian of the Laws of the Game. As the only body authorised to decide and agree changes to the Laws of the Game, we listen to the football community, with the goal to improve and develop the game for players, match officials and fans while protecting and strengthening the spirit and simplicity of football.
Transparency, accountability and inclusivity are the core values of The IFAB. We serve the entire global football community, voice its views and amend the Laws of the Game accordingly, in a democratic way. Our goal is to ensure the future health and stability of football while respecting the core values of the game.
