Event Rules

This event is held as a “catch weight” class, or in other words, as an open class with no weight limit. Bracket positioning is determined by draw. Teams are allowed 11 men and women plus one non-pulling coach. However, only 8 people pull per match. Substitutions are allowed between matches, but not once a match starts. Each match winner is determined by the best two out of three pulls (12-foot pull). Spikes or cleats and gloves are not allowed. During a pull, all team members must remain standing. Sitting and lying on the ground is not allowed. A person having slipped to the ground is allowed 5 seconds to re-gain a standing position or the match is called.
