MAJOR TOURNAMENT RULES

OVERTIME RULES - ONLY APPLICABLE TO CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS, SEMIFINALS (not to consolation finals)
 

Group games may end in a tie. If a play-off game (championship final or semifinal) ends in a tie, two five-minute “golden goal” overtime halves will be played. If the game is still tied at the end of the second overtime period, FIFA kicks from the penalty spot will be taken to determine the winner. 

 
SUBSTITUTION RULES
 

For u8, u9, u10, u11, u12 substitutions may occur with the consent of the referee at any stoppage

For u13 through u19, substitutions may be made with the consent of the referee at the following times: 

1. Prior to a throw-in in your favor or when the opponent is requesting subsitution on their throw-in.
2. Prior to a goal kick, after a goal, after any injury by either team when the referee stops play (only one player may be substituted per team), at halftime, and a yellow-carded player may be substituted for, but this must be done before restart of play. The other team may substitute one player with the permission of the referee.

TIEBREAKERS IN STANDINGS:

 

If two or more teams are tied in points after their preliminary rounds are complete, the following tiebreaking procedures will be used to determine championship recognition and final placement in divisions: 

A. Head to head competition
B. Goal Differential (maximum per cross-over game is +3; unlimited in “non-cross-over games”) C. Most Goals Scored (no limit per game)
D. Fewest Goals Allowed (no limit per game)
E. Fewest accumulation of red cards/ejections
F. Penalty Kicks, round of 5, then sudden-death rounds if needed 

These procedures will be applied, in order, until ties are broken.


PRE-GAME CHECK-IN 

Teams will check-in prior to each game at least 30 minutes prior to kick-off at the CHECK-IN TENT assigned to their field.  This check-in process will include the players.  Team leader should submit the "official tournament roster", and have prepared the player passes & medical releases. 

The team leader will receive the "game pass card".  The game pass card will include a list of all absent players (from the check-in procedure).  The game pass card must be presented to the referee prior to the game.  Teams will do this before each game. 

What about players who are late?  Late players can check-in at the check-in tent until such time as the game pass card is handed over to the referee.  Once the game pass card is handed over the referee, all late players must check-in with the AR.
