UEA 7v7 TOURNAMENT RULES

 

The normal rules of football apply with the following differences:

 

  • No offside.
  • Any number of substitutes may be used, including players who have already been substituted. Changes must take place with the referee’s permission during a break in play.
  • The touchlines used are the white lines on the edge of the outer pitches and the red lines near the nets between pitches.
  • Kick offs and second half kick offs are signalled centrally to keep things running together.
  • Goalkeepers must throw the ball if they receive it from open play. They must take a place kick if the ball goes behind for a goal kick.
  • Matches are 6 minutes each way.
  • In all dead ball kick situations, opponents must be a minimum of 4.5m from the ball.
  • Group winners and runners up are decided on (in order of priority)
    • Points: 3 for a win 1 for a draw
    • Results between the teams tied.
    • Goal difference against the teams in the top 3.
    • Goals scored against the top 3.
    • Toss of a coin
  • The 4 group winners and 4 runners up move into the knock out stages which are again 6 minutes each way. In all knock out games a draw at normal time will be followed by 2 minutes each way of extra time and a penalty shoot-out if necessary. In a penalty shoot-out a minimum of 5 different players must take a kick. If the game is still not settled then the same 5 players may keep taking turns in the sudden death kicks. Any player may go in goal for the penalty competition, though once chosen he or she must stay in goal until the game is decided.
 
Phil Hill 5v5 Rules
 
The rules are the same as for the 7v7 tournaments with the following differences.
  • Matches are 5 minutes each way.
  • No half time break.
  • No throw ins – the ball can be played off the the sides of the enclosure.
  • Goal kicks or corners only if the ball goes behind the goal net.
