How This Guide Works:
This guide is broken down by Law and category in accordance with the current publication of the FIFA Laws of the Game. You may browse content by Law by selecting a Law on the menu to the left. Within each Law, we have broken down the content by category. Selecting a category within a Law will take you to that specific category.
Each category offers a brief description / direction from the US Soccer Week-In-Review or other relevant publication. Videos and other reference materials are then provided for each category, broken down by year of publication. By default, the panels are closed to save space on-screen. To access information from prior years' Weeks-in-Review, simply click on that year to expand the information.
