can be one of several things:
- Forfeiting is the act of voluntarily admitting defeat in a competition or contest, thereby surrendering victory to the opposition.
- Forfeiting can also be done by calling off or ending a game.
- Forfeiting is an established practice in competitive sports, but rarely done. In American Football, a forfeit is scored as a 2-0 win for the opposing team.
- Forfeits (game), a traditional game where players have to perform silly or humiliating tasks to stay in the game
- Forfeit (baseball) - for information about forfeiting in baseball
- Forfeit a song on Chevelle's breakthrough Cd ''Wonder What's Next
- A forfeit in cricket can occur in one of two ways:
- Either side may forfeit one of their innings, but only by mutual consent of the opposing captains. It is not a common practice and is usually only done to try to get a result in a rain-affected match; at the end of side A's first innings the captains may agree that side B will forfeit their first innings and side A will forfeit their second innings, thus reducing the match to a single innings game.
- The umpires also have the power to award a match to side A where side B either concedes defeat or in the opinion of the umpires refuses to play, in which case the game can be deemed to have been forfeited by side B.
- Asset forfeiture, in law, is the confiscation by the State of assets which are either the proceeds of crime or the instrumentalities of crime.
