A corner kick is the method of restarting play in a game of association football when the ball goes out of play over the goal line, without a goal being scored, and having last been touched by a member of the defending team. The kick is taken from the corner of the field of play nearest to where it went out. Corners are considered to be a reasonable goal scoring opportunity for the attacking side, though not as much as a penalty kick or a direct free kick near the edge of the penalty area. A corner kick is also awarded instead of an own goal if the ball goes directly into the goal from a restart taken by the team defending that goal (e.g., throw-in, free kick, kickoff, etc.), though this is rare.

The corner kick was devised in Sheffield under the 1867 Sheffield Rules. It was adopted by the Football Association on 17 February 1872. Scoring directly from a corner was legalised by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) meeting of 15 June 1924 with effect from for the following season. An emergency IFAB meeting in August closed a loophole in the June wording which had permitted Sam Chedgzoy to dribble from a corner. In the 1990s the Laws of the Game were updated to explicitly allow optional marks on the goal line (and later the touch line) ten yards from the corner flag, to aid the referee in ensuring defenders keep the minimum distance from the corner kick. The Dublin City Cup (until the 1960s) and Dublin and Belfast Inter-City Cup (in the 1940s) used corner count as a tiebreaker in knockout rounds.
