Prop approves soccer rules changes for shootouts and end-of-game situations

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved changes to its end-of-match protocol and penalty-kick shootouts in men’s and women’s soccer on Thursday.

PROP, which met via conference call, approved a slight rule change t aoddress end-of-game situations in which the final horn doesn’t sound. The new rule will end the game when the clock strikes 0:00 in the event that the horn malfunctions. Previously, if the horn didn’t sound, the match was ended when the referee blew his or her whistle.

The timekeeper will still audibly count down the final seconds and will say “zero,” to indicate that time is officially over.

PROP also approved a change involving penalty-kick shootouts. Once 10 kicks have been attempted, coaches will now be permitted to change the order of the next 10 kickers.

Previously, the order of the kickers remained the same after the first 10 penalty kicks.
