U.S. Soccer

Paralympic soccer differs from the traditional 11-a-side game. The game is played with seven players (six field players and a goalkeeper) in two 30-minute halves on a smaller field. The offside rule has been eliminated and under-arm throw-ins are permitted for participants unable to perform conventional overhead throw-ins. To be eligible, players must be ambulatory and have a physical challenge from a diagnosis of cerebral palsy (CP) or from having suffered a stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Players are classified (classes 5 through 8) according to the severity of their disability and the laws of the game restrict the number of each class allowed on the field at any given time.
