EURO 2020/2021: Check Out The New Rule UEFA Made On Hand Ball.

As we all know that the beautiful game of football is indeed improvising as new and different laws/rules have been made by the appropriate bodies in order to make this beautiful game enjoyable and playable.

You would agree with me that the rules that were being used some years ago are not exactly the same rules that are currently being used. Even if some of the former rules are still being used, it would have been reformed in order to make the game more exciting.

For example, the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), was not in use some years back, but now, with the help of technology and improvision, the VAR has indeed contributed a great deal to the beautiful game of football.

In the light of making football more fun, the European Football Association (UEFA), have announced a new rule [concerning hand ball] that would be used in the upcoming Euro 2020/2021.

According to reports from Mirror UK, "this new rule has been designed not to punish/penalize attackers if they accidentally commit a handball in the build-up to a goal". It was also reported that this new rule was introduced in March by the International Football Association Board (IFAB), and would be used in the opening game between Turkey and Italy in some days time.

The chairman of the UEFA referee, Roberto Rosetti, made it known that the rule was rewritten to the accordance of the spirit of football, stating that not every touch of a player's hand/arm with the ball is an offence.
