The International Football Association Board have released the text of the 2016/17 Laws of the Game document.

The new laws represent the biggest overhaul of the laws in many years, with a number of substantial changes being made particularly in the treatment of denying obvious goal-scoring opportunities.

The text of the Laws is available to download here. Please note - the changes only take effect for the standard Australian winter competitions from January 2017 (for summer competitions such as the A-League and W-League, the changes will start July 2016 along with the northern hemisphere).
