  • Tactical fouls often occur by means of upper body
    fouls. Uniform (shirt/short) pulls are used in
    particular when a defender has just lost a
    challenge for the ball and begins chasing an
    attacker.

  • In the clip from the July 21 game between the
    Chicago Red Stars and the Atlanta Beat, the
    Chicago player (in white) wins a challenge from
    the Atlanta player (in orange). The play is
    locked in near the touchline and in front of the
    benches, which are two visual cues that a
    defender is less likely to accept getting beat
    as the play is in front of their own or the
    opposing teams bench, and is more likely to
    commit a foul to shut down the ensuing attack.
  • Once the attacking player gains position on the
    defender following a fair challenge, the Referee
    should anticipate an upper body foul and be ready
    to insert a verbal to the defending player to let
    go of the attackers uniform. Such verbal
    management is often effective at minimizing or
    stopping the effect of the foul and allowing the
    attacker to continue advancing the ball. With
    highly skilled players, patience is also in order
    as they are often able to break free of such
    holds. Once the attacking player breaks free, the
    Referee can apply the Advantage clause and allow
    play to continue. The option exists to come back
    and caution the defender at the next stoppage for
    Unsporting Behavior (Blatant Shirt Hold). By
    stopping play, the Referee has allowed the hold
    to effectively stop the attack and a caution for
    Unsporting Behavior (Tactical foul) is warranted.
