 A inspirational learning tool designed to be used at clinics and for a fun time with you fellow officials.

Buy it to improve yourself, your crew or use in your federation as they do in the Netherlands.

“In the Netherlands, we are working intensively to increase our football officiating competence and to encourage a broader knowledge of the rules of the game. To support this goal, we have chosen to use the RULES FIRST game as one of our training tools in the local clubs.” John Mahnen, Program Coordinator of the American Football Bond Nederland



Use the 400 questions to practice rules and signals

Two levels of questions make it easy to play with officials with different experience. Just choose who is playing with the one-star og two-star question cards. The questions include rules and officiating signals.


Pre-snap cards increase the excitment of the game and can turn the scoring in the game around just until the end.


RULES FIRST is launched in  2011 and is now played in 3 continents.
