Tournament Rules

Maximum roster size is 16 players. All players must be currently registered/register with PA West.

45 minute games, running clock, 9v9 format, offsides, no slide tackling player with the ball – all other USSF rules apply.

Group matches can end in a draw. Adjusted goal differential gives max win/loss +/- 4 goals. Teams are awarded 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw. 0 points for a loss. 1 point is awarded for keeping a clean sheet.

After each team plays two group matches, teams will be seeded. In the event of a tie in the standings, ties will be settled based on the following criteria (in order):

If two teams from a group are tied

  • head to head
  • adjusted goal differential
  • least number of goals conceded
  • most number of goals scored
  • Least number of cards received (yellow card counts as 1, red card counts as 2).

If three teams from a group are tied

  • adjusted goal differential
  • least number of goals conceded
  • most number of goals scored
  • Least number of cards received (yellow card counts as 1, red card counts as 2).

For semi-finals and finals – games that are tied after 45 minutes will play one five minute period. At the end of the five minute period, if the match is still tied, a best of three shootout will take place (one for one to follow until there is a winner).
