- (soccer, rugby, basketball) A set-piece where the ball is thrown back into play
- (Australian rules football) A throw of the ball back into play by the boundary umpire. The umpire faces away from the players and throws it in over his or her shoulder (so as to clearly not favour either side by where exactly it's thrown).
- (Ireland) the start time of a Gaelic football match, comparable to kick off in other games.
- Alternative form of throw-in.
- (idiomatic) To add something extra free of charge.
