Jewelry Policy


Effective Date: April 1, 2018

General Information

Male and Female References to the male gender in the Laws of the Game in respect of referees, assistant referees, players and officials are for simplification and apply to both men and women.


A player must not use equipment or wear anything that is dangerous to himself or another player (including any kind of jewelry).


All items of jewelry (necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, leather bands, rubber bands, etc.) are strictly forbidden and must be removed. Using tape to cover jewelry is not acceptable.

Referees are also prohibited from wearing jewelry (except for a watch or similar device for timing the match).

Disciplinary sanctions

The players are to be inspected before the match begins and substitutes before they enter the field of play. If a player is discovered to be wearing
unauthorized clothing or jewelry during play, the referee must:

·         inform the player that the item in question must be removed

·         order the player to leave the field of play at the next stoppage if he is unable or unwilling to comply

·         caution the player if he willfully refuses to comply or, having been told to remove the item, is discovered to be wearing the item again

·         If play is stopped to caution the player, an indirect free kick must be awarded to the opposing team from the position of the ball when play
was stopped (see Law 13 – Position of free kick).
