Fifteen minutes played each way.
All players MUST get equal playing time per game. Players should not be substituted twice before all other players have come off the pitch.
Small-sided game rules apply.
- Tag substitutes (on/off) allowed.
- No offside rule.
- Throw in from the sideline.
- The goalkeeper is allowed to pick up back passes.
Each team plays all other teams in their group and is awarded four points for a win, two for a draw and one for a loss. Number of points, goal difference and then goals scored determine placings within the group.
If the sides are level at the end of normal time in a knock-out phase game (play-off, quarter-final, semi-final and final) then the game goes to extra time of five minutes each way followed by a penalty shoot-out of five attempts per team and then a sudden death shoot-out if still level.
