Art. 36 – Technical foul

New rule

Art. 36.3.2

The opponents shall be awarded 1 free throw. The game shall be resumed as follows:

  • The free throw shall be administered immediately. After the free throw, the throw-in shall be administered by the team which had control of the ball or was entitled to the ball when the technical foul was called, from the place nearest to where the ball was located when the game was stopped.
  • The free throw shall be administered immediately, regardless whether the order of any other possible penalties for any other fouls has been determined or whether the administration of the penalties has been started. After the free throw for a technical foul, the game shall be resumed by the team which had control of the ball or was entitled to the ball when the technical foul was called, from the place where the game has been interrupted for the technical foul penalty.

Reason for change

To avoid double penalty situation after a technical foul is called and to ensure the balance between team with the ball or without the ball.
