In association football, the term "dead ball" refers to a situation when the ball is not in play, e.g. when play has not been restarted after the ball has gone out of bounds or a foul has been committed. It also applies before each kick-off, either at the start of each half or after a goal has been scored. In a dead ball situation, players can position the ball with their hands prior to restarting play. Furthermore, even though the ball is not in play, the referee may still award a foul for any incident that occurs off the ball.

commentators refer to corners/penalties/free kicks as dead ball situations or set pieces - not the best clue but if it's something balls dead balls looks likeliest
