Agenda for The IFAB’s 138th Annual General Meeting confirmed

The IFAB has confirmed the agenda for its 138th Annual General Meeting (AGM), which will be held on 2 March 2024 at 10:00 CET in Glasgow/Loch Lomond (UK) and chaired by the Scottish Football Association.

The members will consider various matters discussed at the recent Annual Business Meeting (ABM) of The IFAB, in particular the progress on the approved trials aiming to improve participant behaviour.

Potential changes and clarifications for the Laws of the Game 2024/25 will also be discussed. These will include a possible amendment to Law 12 (Fouls and Misconduct) whereby handball offences, for which penalties are awarded, would be sanctioned using the same philosophy as for fouls, and to Law 14 (The Penalty Kick), regarding player encroachment and the position of the ball on the penalty mark.

The AGM will also deal with important administrative and business matters and receive updates on various other IFAB projects.
