  1. Golden goal

    The golden goal or golden point is a rule used in association football, field hockey, ice hockey and korfball to decide the winner of a match in which scores are equal at the end of normal time. It is a type of sudden death. Under this rule, the team that scores the first goal or point during extra time is the winner. The game ends when a golden goal is scored. Introduced formally in 1992, though with some history before that, the rule ceased to apply to most FIFA authorized football games in 2004. The similar silver goal supplemented the golden goal between 2002 and 2004. The golden goal is still used in the Beach Soccer World Cup, in NCAA matches and in FIH sanctioned field hockey games. A related concept is used in National Rugby League games. A similar golden goal rule is also used in all National Hockey League overtime games, however the term "golden goal" is not used. A rule similar to the golden goal also applies in the National Football League, although again the term itself is not used; additionally, the league began using the rule well before soccer introduced it.
