These rules are a revised version of the ﬁrst FootGolf World Cup Rules played in Budapest, Hungary, in June, 2012. All of the FIFG Member countries in November, 2013, were invited to provide their opinion on the rules of play and a list of alternative options. The FIFG discussed each of these alternatives individually, reviewed and considered all the options and, in the cases where the majority agreed, changed the rules to suit.
In the cases where the alternative options were tied, the board discussed and made the ﬁnal decision.

The American FootGolf League participated and collaborated in the creation of the international rules of FootGolf.
FootGolf is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf. The game is played with a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf. FootGolf as a game is played throughout the world in many different forms, but as a sport, it is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG). Founded in 2011, the AFGL is the exclusive member of the FIFG and governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the U.S. since 2012.
