Tournament Rules of Play

FIFAs Laws of the Game will be used as the basis of all rules with the following modifications:

–  All players must wear proper equipment to play in all matches. Shin guards must be fully covered by proper socks.  Any items that have hard plastic or metal parts are considered dangerous and not allowed to be worn during play.

–  If a team is unable to field a proper team within 5 minutes of the scheduled start time of the match that team will forfeit the match and the opposing team will be awarded a 3-0 victory.  If neither team is able to field a proper team on the field both teams will forfeit the match to be recorded as a 3-0 defeat for each team.

–  The field of play has been modified to suit the number of players and field locations.

–  Teams are allowed unlimited substitutions. Substitutions are on-the-fly.

–  First round games will end in ties at the end of regulation play; subsequent elimination games from the second round and on will play a single 5-minute, golden goal overtime to begin immediately after regulation time expires.  If still tied teams will go to a 5 round penalty kick shootout.  If the shootout is tied after five rounds a sudden death shootout will commence until a winner is decided.

–  Slide tackling is not allowed, except by the goal keeper inside their own penalty area, and can be considered either a foul or playing in a dangerous manner as determined by the referee.

–  Yellow cards are not cumulative and do not carry over from previous matches.

– Referees will send players who have received yellow cards off the field for at minimum a 2-minute “cool down” period. They may be replaced on the field of play.

–  Any player receiving a red card shall be disqualified from the remainder of the tournament.
