What is the Handball Rule in Football? FIFA Laws cover football fouls and misconduct. The rules state that a free-kick or penalty will be awarded against the offending player if he or she handles the ball deliberately. Note: *An exception exists on the penalty rule in football for the goalie. A goalkeeper handling the ball in their own penalty area is not committing an offence.
There will be no penalty if: the ball touches a player's hand/arm immediately from their own head/body/foot or the head/body/foot of another player. the ball touches a player's hand/arm close to ...

The rule states…. for direct free kick offences a penalty kick is awarded if this is within the offender’s penalty area. So handballs outside of the penalty area result in a direct free kick and any direct free kick offences (including handballs) committed in the penalty area result in a penalty kick.
Therefore the handball rules in football are more strict in attacking scenarios. It is usually a handball if: - a goal is scored by the arm/hand of an attacking player; or if the ball touches an attacking player’s hand/arm in the immediate goal-scoring build-up play. If the arm/hand gives the player an unfair advantage a handball can be called.
