  • In situations where the defending team uses Team Press and regains possession, Team Press will not automatically remain active on the next loss of possession.

  • When a goalkeeper moved then stood still during a penalty kick, they could sometimes deflect the ball into their own net when it was hit directly at them.This does not affect other types of potential deflections that could occur.
