    Tournament Structure
    Teams are divided in the early stages of the event into groups where they play off in a pool stage against those teams drawn in their respected group. Three points will be awarded for a win and one point for a draw. 

    If two or more teams have the same number of points, the order will be decided as follows: 
    • Results of match between teams with equal points.
    • Most goals scored.
    • Teams with the least number of goals conceded
    • If teams are still tied then progression will be decided by disciplinary (red/yellow cards).
    • Or further still by the toss of a coin (At Tournament Committee's Discretion)

    During the knockout stage of the tournament all teams revert back to equal status, with the exception of any bans, which run into the knockout stages.

    All knock out games will be decided by the team who scores the most goals in the match.

    If there is still a tie at the end of normal time then extra time will be played. If there is still a tie then the match will be decide by penalty kicks. Each team will take 5 penalties each; if there is still a tie then sudden death will apply.
