The tournament is open to both club and representative teams. Key is that any club is affiliated to a recognised league which is in turn registered to a National Football Association. Similarly representative teams should either represent a league, county or a group of registered clubs combining for the tournament. All teams are also required to have adequate 3rd party insurance in place in order to compete.
To apply please ensure the entry form on Page 8 is completed and returned by December 31st. Entry fee of £150STG must be included or in the instance of faxed or emailed forms, the fee should follow within 7 days. No team will be accepted unless the fee is received.
In the 11 aside age groups, a maximum of 16 teams will be accepted per age group as this avoids any teams having to play twice on one day. If 16 entries are not received then the tournament will be created with 12, 8 or 4 teams as appropriate.
In mini soccer, up to 32 teams will be accepted, again in groupings of 4 teams. This is because of the shorter nature of matches and the intention to play all games on 3G surfaces. The girl’s tournaments will run if 8 teams enter, but up to 16 will be accommodated. However the exact nature of these age groups will depend on available pitches which are being sourced now.
