Propulsive Football (PROBALL)
Propulsive Football is the games specifically designed as the serious mixed football facilitating equality, diversity and inclusion. It is also called PROBALL. There are 2 major differences with Association football, which are use of hands and the Centre-line. There are also some small differences apart from those.
Hands instead of Head:
Heading is banned while field players are allowed to hit the ball above head with arms and hands. It reduces the possibility of head collision while dynamism in areal display is enhanced. The highest reaching point by both field players and goalkeepers is hand. Therefore, it gives greater advantage to the attacking team.
Centre-line rule divides the pitch into 2 channels. Players switch the left and right channels in each half, that makes the game look like consisting of 4 quarters. Goalkeeper can only play in the goal area on the other channel. In Addition to “Men & Women”, combinations such as “Adults & Children” or “Healthy & Handicapped” can be played as well.
Metallic parts of boots are prohibited while playing with training shoes (with small studs) is also allowed. This increases safety.
Teams get 6 points for win in 90 minutes. 2 points for draw with goals in 90 minutes. 1 point for scoreless draw in 90 minutes. 0 point for loss in 90 minutes.
