  • Thanks Belper Bren for the comment.

    Yes, the line that runs across from one corner flag to the other through the goal is, of course, known as the goal line though sometimes the part of the goal line that is not actually in the goal area (from the corner flag to the penalty area) can be referred to as the byline (e.g reach the byline, crossed from the byline)

  • I’m sorry but for the 55 years I have been on this planet, 45 of them involved with the beautiful game, I think both Pele and I would like to refer to the lines running through the goal posts from each corner flag As GOAL LINES!! The Laws have never referred to them as bylines. Stop this nonsense please.
