Soccer Goalkeeper Six-Second Violation

A goalkeeper’s six-second violation in soccer is a rarely-called foul meant to discourage goalkeepers from excessively holding on to the ball and slowing down the pace of play. Goalkeepers must release a held ball after six seconds; if they fail to do so, an indirect free kick will be awarded to the opposing team at the location of the foul.
