Tournament format

Each player is guaranteed 3 games in the group stage. Ideally each group will only have 4 players. However, currently there are 11 players. What that would mean is that we will have a group 2 groups of 5. Prior to the group stage 2 players will play in a qualifier for the last group b spot. Both players playing in the group b qualifier will only have to pay a dollar prior to the match. The loser does not have to play the rest of the registration fee while the winner does. The group stage will have every player play 3 games against other players in their group. The player in first place of each group after the group stage will automatically advance to the second round of the tournament. Second and third place players will play in the first round. The winners of each round will move on.

During the group stage, each win is worth 3 points, each draw (tie) is worth 1 and each loss is worth 1 point. Tiebreakers during the group stage are as follows: points, wins, losses, draws, goals for, goals against, goal differential. Tie breaks during elimination games are as follows: first extra time then penalty kicks.


Additional rules may be added up to the tournament date.
