LOTG: Law 6–The Other Match Officials


Law 6: The Other Match Officials

We have a new name for Law 6 this year. Previous editions called Law 6 “The Assistant Referees,” and the new title tries to beef up their status from “assistants” to official “officials.”

The AR role is just as important as the CR’s role. Period.

Law 6 describes the duties of AR, 4th Officials, AAR’s, and RAR

The Law also has diagrams of the AR flag signals (see pp. 71-74).

For a great video summary or the AR flag signals, go to the USSF link found here.
