FUTURO 2013 - Learning Modules - Advantage - Location on the Field
Location of the offence will always play a part in whether advantage should be played or not. It is recommended that when the offense occurs in the red zone, extra precaution should be applied - only in exceptional situations should this be considered. In the yellow zone, careful consideration should be adopted, taking into account all possible factors which might affect match control. In the green zone, advantage should be applied where possible, but a free kick might also be a team benefit.
