Any eligible player may change position with the goalkeeper at any time during the penalty shootout.

If, a team has more players than their adversary at the end of the match and before beginning the penalty shootout, they should reduce their number of players to match that of their adversary and the person in charge of the team shall communicate to the field director and referee the name and number of each excluded player. Thus, excluded players will not be able to participate in the penalty shootout.

SANCTIONS

All expulsions will be reported at the end of the match to the Competition Committee who shall communicate the sanctions to the person responsible for the team in question.

Technical expulsions such as for holding a rival by the shirt for tactical reasons, if the goalkeeper touches the ball with his hands outside the goal box, and receiving a second caution , will not be sanctioned for the next match after being reviewed by the Competition Committee.

In other expulsions such as for insulting, kicking, assaulting a rival, etc., the player will be automatically banned for the next match and – depending on the severity of the act – could be punished for several matches. All cases of serious expulsion will be reported to the national federation of the offending player’s country.
