Way of conduct – Draw
During the first stage, groups are going to be formed. In the second phase, the groups are drawn up on the basis of the grading of the first phase. In case of two teams hold the same rank, the following will be taken into consideration: 1) the outcome of their game, 2) the number of goals difference, 3) best attack, 4) best defense, 5) the most draws, 6) by lot.
During the knock-out games, if a match ends in a draw, the winner will be determined through the penalties (3 penalties in classification matches, 5 penalties in the finals), without time extension.
Points will be given as such: 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a defeat.
If any team wishes to make an objection, this must be recorded on the score sheet, immediately after the end of the game (within 10 minutes).
Offences applied for players concern sending-off offences and elimination from the tournament. If a player receives two yellow cards in the same game then he is sent off. Receiving a red card, the player is not allowed to participate in the next game. A red card for a serious foul play or the use of offensive language against a player or a referee results to the player’s elimination from the tournament. The organizing committee is responsible for the implementation of the offences and the handling of any objections. All the teams acknowledge the committee as the only responsible for dealing with anything that might arise.
The teams must take measures in order to prevent and suppress incidents defaming the sport or arousing the fans and are responsible for any unsporting action or offensive behavior of players, coaches and members of their team.
Each team-academy participating, must present to the organizing committee health certificates with the names of the players. The identity and age of each player must be verified by official documents (Soccer League Card, birth certificate) which will be given to the organizing committee that will keep them throughout the tournament. Identity and age control will be realized before the beginning of the tournament.
Exceptions: 1)Teams from England & USA where age categories match school years may use up to two (2) players born from 1st August of the previous year. 2) Girls born in the previous year can participate in any category.
Following an objection from the opposing team, the use of a player that does not belong to this age category will cause the zeroing of his team in the match and the victory to the opposing team (score 3-0).
The organizing committee is responsible for any changes in the games schedule and the organization in general (fields, resting hours etc). There will be a secretariat inside the facilities, offering the best services to the teams and dealing with issues that might arise.
Medals and cups will be awarded tο the first three winners of each category. All teams will receive medals, participation souvenirs.
