If scores are level at the end of normal time then extra time needs to be played.

Extra time will be 2 x 10 mins for under 11s and 12s, or 2 x 15 mins in all other divisions. BOTH halves of extra time must be played. Players may request a 5 minute break between extra time halves.


Treat this as though it was a new game (take a toss, the winner having the KO or direction option). At this stage any cards and warnings given during normal time are still current – i.e. there has been no “clock re-set”.


If scores are still level after the completion of both halves of extra time, then kicks from the penalty mark in accordance with FIFA Rules will be taken to determine the winner


The referee should toss a coin to decide the goal at which the kicks will be taken, however you should consider the safety of players (i.e. condition of the 2 goal areas) and the location of spectators and you may determine which goal is best to be used without taking the toss.


Then toss the coin and whoever wins the toss chooses to kick either 1st or 2nd


A player who has been sent off during the match is not permitted to participate in KFPM. Any warning and caution issued to players and team officials during the match is not carried forward into penalties (penalty shoot-out) – i.e. the “clock is re-set”.


All match officials keep a record of the kicks, however teams are NOT required to list the order of kickers before the KFPM commences


Only players who were on the field at the end of extra time may participate in the kicks.  If there is a difference in player numbers (e.g. because a send-off), the team with more players must reduce to the other teams numbers


Any player (on the field at end of extra time) may change positions with their goal keeper at any time. If a goalkeeper is injured, he/she may be replaced with a named interchange player (i.e. a sub off the bench)


Only players (on the field at end of extra time) and the match officials may remain on the field during kicks from the penalty mark. In under 11 and 12 matches a coach is also allowed.


Players must remain inside the centre circle


5 kicks are taken alternately. If scores are level after 5 kicks, the kicks will alternate until one team gains the advantage (when the number of kicks taken is equal).


After every eligible player has taken a kick, then further kicks are taken by each team until a winner is determined.


If the goalkeeper commits an offence and, as a result the kick is re-taken, the goalkeeper should be warned (for the first offence), cautioned for a second offence and receive a second yellow (and thus a red) card for a third offence.


If the kicker commits an offence after the referee has signalled for the kick to be taken, that kick is recorded as a “miss” and the kick must be cautioned


A player, substitute, substituted player or team official may be cautioned or sent off.   A goalkeeper who is sent off must be replaced by one of the players on the field (i.e. not a substitute).   A player other than the goalkeeper who is unable to continue may not be replaced., If the number of players on any team falls below 7 players, the referee does NOT abandon the match.
