Championship Rules & Format
1) Eight teams have been divided into two groups of four teams.
2) Each group will play a single round robin within their group then proceed to further play according to placing. The Winners of each pool will play for 1st and 2nd; the 2nd place for 3rd and 4th.
3) Games to be 2 x 35 minute halves.
4) Scoring system for Round Robin- 3 points for a win – 0 points for a loss – 1 point for a tie.
5) Tie Breaking Procedures:
a) In all round robin games, if a tie results at the end of regulation time, each team receives 1 point. Penalty kicks are to be taken immediately. The results of the kick will be used only to break a tied if those two teams are tied in point totals after round robin play.
b) In all other games after round robin play if a tie results at the end of regulation time (2 x 7 ½ minute) overtime will be played. If the game is still tied then penalty shots will be taken (F.I.F.A. rules).
4) Group tie breaking procedure:
If two or more teams are tied within a group and have an equal number of points on the completion of the round robin, the following criteria shall be used, in order, to determine the final standings:
a) Previous Match Result: the winner of the match between two teams tied in points shall be awarded the higher position (not applicable if three (3) or more tied). As soon as the three (3) way tie is broken teams return to the beginning of the Group tie breaking procedure for two teams.
b) Goal Difference: goal difference shall be calculated by subtracting Goals conceded from Goals scored. A maximum of five (5) goals shall be awarded in each game. (Example: a 5 – 0 score (5 goal difference), a 7 – 2 score (5 goal difference), a 7 – 3 score (4 goal difference). If 3b does not break the tie between the teams then the team with the highest goals for in the games between the tied teams will be given the higher ranking. Goal difference will only be used for the matches between the teams that are tied.
c) Least Goals Against: the team having the fewer number of goals against will be awarded the higher position.
d) Penalty Kicks: if three or more teams are still tied under criteria (a) – (c), then the higher standings shall be decided by kicks from the penalty spot, as follows:
Three teams tied: each team is designated A,B, or C. Three mini-games shall be played (A vs B, B vs C, C vs A) consisting of five (5) penalty kicks at a time and place to be decided by the Commission Representative. The standings after these three mini-games shall be ranked. Note all five shots are to be taken in each mini-game regardless of the score. The total goals scored in the mini-game will be used.
Four teams tied: each team is designated A, B, C, or D. Six mini-games shall be played (A vs B, C vs D, A vs C, B vs D, D vs A, and C vs B), to decide the final ranking as in the three team case.
