Laws of the Game for everyone
Do you want to become a (better) referee? Are you a player, a coach, or a journalist writing about football? Do you want to check something while watching a match on TV or at a stadium?
It does not matter if you are a professional or an amateur, an expert or a die-hard fan, or just curious. If you referee, play, coach or watch football, you have to know the Laws of the Game.

Good App

The app is great and I love all of the new features you guys have added, but could you please add an option for landscape view for iPads and other tablets?

Version 2.0.0 crashes on start

Just updated to the latest version (2.0.0) and it crashes immediately after I tap the app icon, every time I try to open the app.

Earlier versions were great though, and given there’s not a lot of live soccer happening right now the timing for this issue is about as good as a bug of this seriousness can be.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for contacting us. We are aware that some users who have already downloaded one of the previous versions of the app on iOS device(s) may now face issues. We are working on the update solving this problem. In the meantime you can uninstall the app and download the latest version on the App Store: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/laws-of-the-game/id1464911972. In this case, please be aware that you may lose your notes.

If you encounter any issues along the way, please contact us at logapp@theifab.com

Looking forward to hearing from you, The IFAB

Very good app

Shout out to the developers on this well made app. It’s clean and it functions well. If I were to make one suggestion, it’s that they change the name of the app. “Laws of the Game” looks all scrunched up on my home screen, just a small pet peeve. Maybe name it something like IFAB, short and sweet.

Thank you for your input. We’re happy to hear you are enjoying the Laws of the Game app experience! All the best, The IFAB
