Group games may end in a tie. If a play-off game (championship final or semifinal) ends in a tie, two five-minute “golden goal” overtime halves will be played. If the game is still tied at the end of the second overtime period, FIFA kicks from the penalty spot will be taken to determine the winner.
For u8, u9, u10, u11, u12 substitutions may occur with the consent of the referee at any stoppage.
For u13 through u19, substitutions may be made with the consent of the referee at the following times:
1. Prior to a throw-in in your favor or when the opponent is requesting subsitution on their throw-in.
2. Prior to a goal kick, after a goal, after any injury by either team when the referee stops play (only one player may be substituted per team), at halftime, and a yellow-carded player may be substituted for, but this must be done before restart of play. The other team may substitute one player with the permission of the referee.
TIEBREAKERS IN STANDINGS:
If two or more teams are tied in points after their preliminary rounds are complete, the following tiebreaking procedures will be used to determine championship recognition and final placement in divisions:
A. Head to head competition
B. Goal Differential (maximum per cross-over game is +3; unlimited in “non-cross-over games”) C. Most Goals Scored (no limit per game)
D. Fewest Goals Allowed (no limit per game)
E. Fewest accumulation of red cards/ejections
F. Penalty Kicks, round of 5, then sudden-death rounds if needed
These procedures will be applied, in order, until ties are broken.
