FastBall football is being played for 30 minutes, two equal halves of 15 minutes each; no offside rule is in effect; a blue ball will be introduced in the 12th minute and any team scoring will earn two goals as opposed to the one goal with the normal white ball; if a game ends without a result after full time, sudden death penalty kicks will decide the winner with the opposing captain selecting the player to take the kicks.
