At its 18 Oct 2004 meeting the PAGS Council unanimously passed an amendment to the PAGS by-laws regarding placement of teams and supporters at the field. Effective with games on 10/23/2004 Section 2.05 of the By-Laws will read as follows:
Separation of Teams and Supporters: The home team selects one end of one sideline, along which all players and coaches will remain. All visiting team players and coaches must remain along the other half of the same sideline Supporters of both teams must remain on the opposite side of the field. Only carded players and coaches are permitted in the team areas. The sideline positioning may not be changed by the teams. This will be reported as a League rule to the Referee's Association.
