Provided that when the match is played on such other date, the match shall resume from the point in time of the match in which the match was abandoned or discontinued, and the remaining match time must be played.

In such a circumstance the following shall apply:

(a) The Official Match Report Form may contain any of the eligible players who are duly registered with the club of the two participating teams when the match was abandoned or discontinued, irrespective of whether they were actually on the Official Match Report Form for the abandoned or discontinued match, with the exception of players substituted or sent off during the abandoned or discontinued match as well as players suspended for the abandoned or discontinued match;

(b) The players who were in play at the time the match was abandoned or discontinued may not be included on the Official Match Report Form as substitutes when the match is resumed;

(c) Any sanctions imposed before the match was abandoned or discontinued remain valid for the remainder of the match;

(d) Single yellow cards imposed before the match was abandoned or discontinued are not carried forward to any other matches before the abandoned or discontinued match is completed;

(e) Players sent off during the abandoned match cannot be replaced and the number of players in the starting line-up remains as it was when the match was abandoned or discontinued;

(f) Players who were suspended following a match played after the abandoned or discontinued match in question can be included on the Official Match Report Form, unless such players were suspended for a period of time;

(g) The teams can make only the number of substitutions to which they were still entitled when the match was abandoned or discontinued;

(h) The match must restart on the same spot where the abandoned or discontinued match action occurred (ex. free-kick, throw-in, goal kick, corner kick, penalty, etc.). If the match was stopped during the normal flow of the game, a dropped ball on the spot where it was abandoned or discontinued shall be used to restart
