What is the back pass rule in soccer?
Why was the back pass rule created?
The back pass rule is a rule created to encourage ball movement in soccer. Before the rule, a team could pass the ball back to their goalie, who would handle the ball with their hands and slow play. The back pass rule changed this, preventing the goalie from using their hands if the ball came from a teammate's pass.
