Create an empty dynastic rule called “The Field of Play” as Rule 2.1, move “The Ball” to be Rule 2.2, then add the following empty dynastic rules, renumbering any other existing dynastic rules as 2.18 onwards:-

2.3: The Number of Players
2.4: The Players’ Equipment
2.5: The Referee
2.6: The Assistant Referees
2.7: The Duration of the Match
2.8: The Start and Restart of Play
2.9: Ball In and Out of Play
2.10: The Method of Scoring
2.11: Offside
2.12: Fouls and Misconduct
2.13: Free Kicks (direct and indirect)
2.14: The Penalty Kick
2.15: The Throw-in
2.16: The Goal Kick
2.17: Corner Kick

If a rule called “Scrimmages” exists, repeal it and add the text that it contained to the rule “The Start and Restart of Play”.

If rules called “Passing” and “Scoring” exist, repeal them both and add the text that they contained to the rule “The Method of Scoring”.

Just learned for the first time that association football has seventeen Laws of the Game - coincidentally including one called “The Ball” - and this seemed like it might be an amusing framework to be constrained by.
