How it works

  • This is a 5-a-side competition and teams are allowed a maximum of seven players in their squad, which includes two rolling subs.
  • All players should enter as a team with a nominated adult manager. Regretfully, we are not able to organise individual players into teams and individual entry is not possible.
  • The exact format of the afternoon will depend on the number of teams entered. We anticipate having a tournament league for each year group, depending on how many entries we receive for each.
  • We will have a separate league (or leagues) for KS2 girls-only teams if enough teams enter for this category.
  • Girls can also play in mixed teams in any of the other leagues.
  • If teams are made up of players from more than one school year, they will be placed in a league of teams from the school year of the oldest players in the team.
  • Games will last 5 minutes each (apart from the final of each league, which will be 10 minutes).
  • There will be a trophy for the winning team from each league.
  • Arrival and registration will be from 3.30pm - 3.50pm for a prompt 4pm start. The tournament will finish by 6.15pm.
  • ·All teams must have a named responsible adult on the school grounds for the duration of the tournament.
