Game Play System for 2022

Each team will play (3) games guaranteed. (Number of round robin games may be less or more based on number of teams)

  • For 2022- Based on the points system, each team will be ranked 1st through 3rd within their pools after round robin play is completed.
  • Teams will be seeded for the elimination tournament based on results from their respective pool play.
  • All 1st place teams will then be seeded 1-3 based on most points earned first, then if needed the tie breaker system will kick in (minus the head to head)
  • 2nd place teams will be seeded 4 through 6
  • 3rd place teams will be seeded 7-9.

If a team does not have seven (7) players at the time the match is scheduled, they will be given a 10 minutes of leeway. After the 10 minutes is up, the other team will be awarded a 1-0 forfeit win. (If after the 10 minutes has past and both teams end up having enough players, they may choose to play a friendly match with however much time would is remaining based off the original start time and end time.)

In the past we have had issues with flights being delayed and teams not having enough players for their first game. If this instance happens, we can find local non eligible players to fill your roster for that game in order for the match to be played as a friendly. You have all paid a lot of money to travel for this tournament and we want you to get your monies worth. However, to keep the integrity of the games intact, if you need to use local non eligible players to field a team, the other team will be awarded a 1-0 forfeit win regardless of the outcome or score of the game

The only exception to this rule will be if both team captains agree to play the game without awarding the forfeit and accept the final out come as the result of playing the match. This must be agreed upon before the start of the game. Once the game begins, all decisions are final.

Two Yellow Cards in a match will equal one Red Card. Any player receiving two Yellow Cards or One Red card in a match will be suspected from playing in the next match. (One Game Suspension)

If a player receives one yellow in a match, that yellow card will not carry over to the next match.

Point System

  • Win: 3 Points
  • Tie: 1 Point
  • Loss: 0 Points

Tie Breaker

  • Head-to-Head
  • Goal Differential
  • Total goals for
  • Total goals against
  • Kicks from the Penalty Mark (or coin toss at the discretion of the Tournament Director if time doesn’t allow)
