What are the various rules for placement of goal kicks?

Sports Asked on October 21, 2021

I have seen goal kicks placed in various spots within the box, and then there are kicks where the goalkeeper can handle the ball and drop-kick it.

What determines these different cases?

One Answer

These are all completely different situations.

  • A goal kick can only be taken within the goal area (the 6 yard box). (Law 16)
  • A drop kick means the ball is still in play. The goalie could as well throw the ball to a team mate.
  • Free kicks can be awarded almost anywhere on the pitch. They're taken from where the previous offence occurred. (Law 13)
