IBSA Football Committee announces new dates for rule changes

15 May 2020
In the light of recent events, the IBSA Football Committee has agreed new dates for the process of consulting with stakeholders and approving updated rules.

As a result of the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games until summer 2021, the current sport rules will remain in place and valid for one more year than usual, that is to say until December 31st, 2021.

The new rules will now enter into force on January 1st, 2022.

The new dates allow for an extended open consultation with everyone involved in the game, giving stakeholders the opportunity to voice their opinion and have their say on how the new rules should look.

The committee invites all parties involved in blind football, in whatever role, to consider what changes should be made to the current rules and submit suggestions and proposals.

All stakeholders, and in particular players, are welcome to suggest modifications to the current rules over the coming months and play an active role in shaping the future of blind football.

An email address has been set up to facilitate the process. All comments, suggestions, queries and proposals should be sent in writing to football.rules@ibsasport.org by Monday 31st May 2021. 

Following this deadline, the IBSA Football Committee will collate and consider proposals and suggestions, draw up the new rules and adopt them for entry into force on January 1st, 2022.
