The players are not allowed to touch their feet on the ground else; it results in a penalty.
The size of the ball should be around 18 cm, i.e. 7 inches in diameter.
Before the beginning of the match, the referee tosses a coin to determine which team should begin the game first. The winning team gets the benefit first to strike the ball with their front, rear wheel of the bicycle.
If any player touches the floor, lean over the playing ball or at the goal post, then he/she is automatically disqualified from the match.
A free-kick is usually granted if any offence is committed outside the given penalty area. For serious offences, a penalty kick is awarded.
