Tournament Rules 

1.      Game Rules

REY CUP is played in accordance with the rules of FIFA and where applicable by the rules of the Icelandic Football Association.

2.      Type of Tournament

The teams will be grouped in a pool of three to six teams. All teams in a group play each other. The final pool standing will be the result of the amount of points each team has achieved:

Win        3 points

Draw     1 point

Loss       0 point

If two or more teams have the same number of points, the final standing will be decided by:

  1. Goal difference
  2. Highest number of goals scored
  3. Individual result between the teams in question
  4. If still undecided, the winner will be drawn by the Tournament Committee.

The match program is preliminary. Each coach must check with the  Capelli Sport REY CUP Center if any changes have occurred.

Winner team of each pool will play the finals unless there will be semi finals, depending on size of group.

If after regular playing time in semi finals and finals the result is still inconclusive, the game will be decided by a penalty shootout according to the FIFA rules ( 3 penalties per team, then one until final result).

3.      Classifications

Capelli Sport REY CUP follows the international practice of classification, which rules that each age group makes a team, i.e. all those who are born in 2002 play together as U16.

Capelli Sport REY CUP does however make an exception permitting teams to follow the Icelandic classification, i.e. 13 and 14 year olds can play together and 15 and 16 together.  The Tournament Committee deals individually with applications of teams which do not follow the KSI rules. A maximum of 3 older players from previous year can play in any match.  A team that has been accepted by the Tournament Committee is considered qualified to play in the tournament.

4.      Match Period

2 x 25 minutes unless otherwise decided and announced in advance. Half time is 5 minutes.

5.      Number of Players

Each team has the opportunity to use an unlimited number of players, allowing a player to re-enter the game after being substituted. Substitution takes place at the midfield line after the referee has been notified. Only players who have been registered prior to the tournament start can play.

6.      Games

  1. Before the tournament the Tournament Committee can ask for a name list of all                          players in the registered teams.
    2.            Shin guards are requested.
    3.            Screw studs are not allowed.

7.      Walk-Over
