Euro 2020: Here Is The New Rule On Handball

The UEFA football body has released a new rule on handball which will come in place at the Euro 2020 tournament.

The Mirror reports that the new rule was designed to not penalise attackers if they accidentally commit a handball in the build-up to a goal.

The rule was introduced by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) back in March and will start to be used around the world next month.

There was an opportunity to bring the new law in sooner if UEFA wanted to.

In the latest development Roberto Rosetti, the chairman of the UEFA referees’ committee, has affirmed that officials will use the new rule during Friday’s Euro 2020 opening game between Turkey and Italy in Group A.

“The way the law has been rewritten is more according to the spirit of football and gives players the freedom to play football,” Rosetti said at the 135th annual briefing.
