About the event
The Sports Carnival Committee reserves the right to modify or cancel the sport if insufficient nominations are received.
The winner will receive 15,000 points and the runner-up 9.000 points.
The soccer competition will be conducted under the rules set down by the Federation of International Football Association, except where modified by the following:
The competition will consist of an open team event of six players per side in a round robin competition. Teams may have a maximum of nine players. It will be played on a reduced pitch with smaller goals. Shin guards are mandatory.
Each game will consist of two halves of twenty minutes each. A five minute break will be allowed at half time. Players who have substituted may come back on.
There will be no offside, and all free kicks are direct (a five meter rule will apply).
Any player receiving a red card will automatically receive a one match suspension. Two yellow cards in any given game will result in a red card which will result in an automatic one match suspension. Any player receiving three yellow cards in the competition will automatically receive a one match suspension.
Points will be awarded as follows:
> win 3 points
> draw 1 point
> loss 0 points
In the event of a forfeit the team that is available to play shall be awarded the winning points.
For the purposes of ‘for and against’ the score line will be three-nil (3-0).
The two teams with the highest number of points at the end of the round robin will contest the final. In the event of two or more teams finishing with the same number of points, their positions will be determined on a ‘for and against basis’, using the results from the preliminary rounds.
If the final is tied at full time, ten minutes sudden death (golden goal) additional time will be played. If the teams are still tied, a penalty shoot-out shall be conducted with each team having five penalty kicks. If the teams are still tied, then sudden death penalties shall decide a winner.
Gold and silver medals will be presented after the final to the players who participated in the final.
