Mini World Cup Playing Rules

All Groups

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.
