What is an Offside on Free Kick Penalty in Football?

Offside on free kick is a penalty in Football that is called on the receiving team during a kickoff when a player on the receiving team is offsides at the time of the kick. The receiving team must line up at least 10 yards away from the spot of the ball. If a player is lined up less than 10 yards from the spot of the ball, an offside penalty will be called. This penalty results in a 5 yard loss for the receiving team.
