Universality of the Laws

As the game is essentially the same on every football pitch – from the FIFA World Cup™ final to the local competition in the smallest village, the Laws of the Game must be the same in all competitions and friendly matches organised by the national football associations, confederations and FIFA. If changes are made to the Laws, they usually come into force on 1 June each year.
