The whistle blown by the referee stops and starts play. The pitch is marked with a centre line, a circle with a radius of fifteen meters in the centre of the field, and a semi-circle with a radius of 30 meters measured from the centre of the goal line at either end of the pitch. Elephants and ends are changed at half time.

This game starts in Nepal between last week of November – 1st week of December.
