It has two goal cages with a maximum height of 2.2m, a width of 5m x 1m (depth) and a FIFA standard ball .

The match is played in 2 periods of 25 minutes with a half-time of about ten minutes. A timeout of two minutes is authorized per team and per game. The team is made up of 7 players (6 outfield players, a goalkeeper) and substitutes.

Outfield players (excluding goalkeepers) must have a lower limb amputated. The goalkeeper must have an upper limb amputated, so a hand.

Players cannot use their crutches and stump to handle the ball. If this happens, it's considered a "hand" unless it's unintentional.
