Indoor Rule Clarification
Slide Tackling Video Examples
To help officials with determining whether an incident of slide tackling has occurred in their matches, the MSA has created a series of video clips detailing various scenarios where players are seen sliding.
Please remember, in indoor soccer 6 v 6, Sliding is not an offence by itself. Stretching for a ball is not an offence and is not sliding. The distance between a player and their opponent/ball is a key factor.
Please note: In cases where a slide tackle has occurred, should this tackle result in the denying of an obvious goalscoring opportunity (DOGSO) situation, a dismissal would be the appropriate action taken, even in cases of dangerous play.
