Teams are required to arrive at the appropriate field twenty (20) minutes prior to the scheduled game time. Tournament field marshals will conduct the check-in process at this time. All players and coaches/team representative must be present. Teams are required to start games on time. Any team that is (15) minutes late for a game will forfeit that game. According to FIFA rules, seven (7) players are needed to start the game. A team’s failure to complete a match or leaving the field during play will result in forfeiture.
Failure to Show - Forfeits
The Tournament Director will make the final decision if a forfeit shall be allowed depending upon extenuating circumstances that may have prevented a team from making the game on time. If a forfeit is determined, the winning team will be awarded a score of 1-0 and will receive only 3 points for the win. In the event of a forfeit in a group, all teams in the group will be awarded the same points. No team that has forfeited a game will be declared a group or division winner.
In conjunction with the Puma Cup, we have partnered with the Shindigz National Soccer Festival.
