Event description

Description

We will be hosting a cultural Habesha Football Tournament. With habesha's from all over the place. We have been planning for this moment to come and we hope it goes as planned.

  • The Registration for the tournament will take place at 08:00am on Saturday 22nd June. It is very important that all teams arrive on time.
  • The tournament will begin with Registration, introduction of the venue and timings, group photos and designating pitches.
  • In all the matchs will start and finish by a single horn blow. Starting and ending games simultaneously will save time!
  • The knock out stages will be started and stopped by the Referee’s whistle
  • There are only nine players on each side including the goalkeeper
  • The teams are allowed to bring up to 15 players to compete in the tournament
  • No under 17 years old
  • The game is played on a normal pitch with the clearly defined penalty areas and side lines
  • If the ball leaves the pitch- the standard football rules apply, i.e. throw-in from the side-line
  • Whistles will be used by referees to stop play during all stages, i.e. fouls and injuries but no stoppage time will be allocated
  • The duration of the matches will be 20 minutes each half and with changing sides.
  • The games will be refereed by one referee, i.e. no linesmen. Therefore, we ask all players to obey fair play rules. This will keep everyone safe and happy throughout the tournament!
  • Foul and hand ball rules will be followed just as in standard football
  • Players are allowed to pass the ball to their own keeper but the Goalkeeper is not allowed to pick it up, i.e. standard back pass rules apply
  • All restarts after the goals are from the middle of the field
  • There is no off-side rule in all the games throughout the tournament.
  • In all the games there will be a maximum of 5 subs allowed per game
  • All subs have to be recognised by the referee but no stoppage time for them will be allowed
  • Players who have come off the pitch in one game cannot re-enter it until the next game

Cards

  • Yellow and red cards will be given for fouls and infringement of rules as in regular football games
  • Two yellow cards in the games means missing the next match.
  • Two yellow cards in one game equals a red card and means that you miss a whole 3 games
  • General laws of the game will be applied, i.e. careless play=Foul, reckless play=Yellow and excessive use of force= Red
  • Red cards will be awarded straight away for any deliberate and excessive use of force
  • Only Registered players can play in the tournament and only for the team they are registered, no transfers of players.

Scoring Games

  • Each win in the group stage will be awarded 3 point
  • 1 point for a draw
  • 0 points for a defeat
  • All games involving tournament drop-outs, i.e. teams who are late arriving on the day or absent from their games, will be settled as goal-less draws with no points awarded. Those teams who are present on the day but are more than 5 minutes late for the beginning of their game will be deemed to forfeit their game
  • In case of game forfeits 3 points will be awarded to the team which is ready and able to play. No points will be awarded to the team forfeiting the game
  • In group stages: if teams finish on the same number of points, the outcome will be decided by the goal difference. If goal difference is the same, outcome will be decided on their head to head game. If that was a draw then a penalty shootout will take place. 5 penalties each, different players taking each penalty. Goal keepers are allowed to take a penalty.
  • In knock-out stages: Five consecutive penalty shots taken in turns will decide the outcome of each game.
  • If the score is still inconclusive then penalties will be taken in turns until a winner is revealed. This rule also applies to the final match.

The Final

  • The Final game will be played on the main pitch
  • The Final game will be 80 minutes long with two 40 -minute-long halves
  • The Final game will have a 5 minutes half- time break between the halves
  • The Final will be played between two 11-a-side teams
  • Because only 15 players per team are allowed on the day, the teams playing in the Final will have only 4 substitutions available

Safety And Other Team Info

  • All teams/players are advised to bring shin pads and suitable footwear to the tournament.
  • Personal safety of players and fans, the spirit of fair play and respect for each other are absolutely key elements of the tournament. Our main aim is to enjoy the competition while keeping everybody safe and welcomed on the day.
  • All teams are advised to bring their own First Aid kits to tournament. Bringing first aiders alongside would be also appreciated
  • Each team manager will be responsible for recording goals scored by his team members. This will be then used to reveal the Tournament’s Golden Boot competition winner
