Year (Source) new or changed laws (proposing club, if known)
1857 (Eton Field Game) Choice between throw-in or a bully at the opposite of the field.
1858 (Sheffield FC) If the ball went into touch, the person who touched the ball first was allowed to throw the ball into field from the point where the ball went out. The Sheffield FC Rules also fixed that the distance between all other players must be at least 6 yd until the ball was back in play.
1858 (Harrow Football) Kick-in (nothing else is mentioned).
1862 (The Simplest Game) Kick-in from the point where the ball went out.
1862 (Blackheath FC) Throw-in from the point of touching the ball.
1863 (FA) If the ball went into touch, the person who touched the ball first was allowed to throw the ball into field from the point where the ball went out. The FA Rules fixed, too, that the throw-in had to be thrown at right angles.
1866 (FA) The player performing the throw-in must not touch the ball again until it was touched by another player.
1867 (Sheffield FC) Throw-in in right angle.
1868 (Sheffield FA) Kick-in. The other players must be at least 6 yd away until the ball was back in play.
1871 (FA) While throw-in in the other players must be at least 6 yd away until the ball was back in play.
1873 (FA) The throw-in is given to the opponent of the team that played the ball into the touch (Maidenhead FC, Nottingham Forest FC).
1877 (FA) Choice between throw-in or kick-in (Wanderers FC). A throw-in must not be performed in right angles (Clydesdale FC).
1886 (IFAB) Only throw-in. It must be performed as follows: 1) facing the field, 2) holding ball over head, 3) throws it with both hands and 4) in a free direction, but on the field (1886). This change is not recorded in the Minute Book however. This execution was obviously not adopted in Ireland and Wales, because both federations were chidden at the IFAB meeting in 1889 and reminded of the definite nature of the IFAB decisions for the four member federations. In the case of an incorrect throw-in, the opposing team gets a throw-in. If the opponent of an infringement of the law, the throw-in will be repeated.
1896 (IFAB) The performer may stand with a part of his/her feet on the lines, but not entirely on the field.
1920 (DFB) It is not possible to be offside during a throw-in.
1931 (IFAB) In the event of an infringement of the law, the opposing team receives a throw-in (if previously from the wrong place) or a free kick (if performed incorrectly) (IFA).
1966 (IFAB) If a player dances or gestures before a free kick to confuse his/her opponent, he/she must be cautioned for ungentlemanly conduct (SFA).
1978 (IFAB) If a free kick is given to a team in its own goal area, the free kick may be taken from any point within the goal area (FA).
