Three Points for a Win

Three Points for a Win

Three points are the number of points awarded to the winning team of a football match.

No points awarded to the losing team, with each team receives one point if the match ends in a draw.

Three points for a win was introduced in England in 1981, where it was previously two points and was formally adopted by FIFA in 1995. “Three points for a win” is supposed to encourage more attacking play than “two points for a win”

Football has been my ultimate passion since day one. Football really started becoming a huge part of my life when I was 14, but with the Internet not being as prominent at the time, I had a hard time finding pertinent information. And this is exactly how Football-Wonderkids came about. As the website’s Founder, I’m on a mission to curate information on current youth players across the globe and make it readily available all in one place.
