Regarding the “no slide tackle rule”

The purpose of this Rule change is to reduce the chance of injury and promote safe and fair play.

The League defines a 'Slide Tackle' as:

i. Leaving your feet to CHALLENGE an opponent, contact with the opponent is not required

ii. Every Slide Tackle awards a Direct Free Kick or Penalty Kick

iii. Careless, Reckless or Excessive force standards apply, Cautions or Dismissal offences do not change

iv. Denying Obvious Goal Scoring Opportunity (DOGSO) considerations still apply - no changes.

Exceptions to the Rule are:

i. Goal Keeper challenging an Opponent to make a save in his own Penalty Area

ii. Player sliding to keep ball in play – no opponent nearby

iii. Player sliding to stop pass or shot – no opponent nearby
