Defenders can only attack a ball-carrying rider from the side of the bike where they are “carrying” the ball.
There are 10 players in a team plus two mechanics and a manager, but only five players (four riders and a goalie) can be on the field at any one time and only 10 motorcycles can be used during a match.
Bikes must weigh 70-120kg, have two two chain guards, speedway or trials tyres and have rubber protection on the ends of the footpegs and handlebars.
Matches have 20-minute quarters.
Fields are 75-110m long by 45-85m wide and there is a 5.75m semi-circular no-go area for bikes around the goal mouth which is 7.32m wide by 2.44m high.
The rubber ball is covered in leather, is almost twice the size of a basketball and weighs about 1kg.
