Six (6) teams divided into two groups – A and B – three (3) teams in each, will participate in the tournament.
Within the groups, every team will play with every other team with the application of the score system.
Scoring within the group (teams):
For a win – 3 points
For a tie – 1 point
In case teams from the same group have the same total score, advantage will be given to the team who performed better in their mutual match. In case that match ended in a tie, the total number of goals will be considered and if the result is still indecisive, lots will be drawn.
After all in-group matches have been played, ranking matches will be held (A1-B1, A2-B2, A3-B3).
In the ranking matches, in case of a tie, penalty shootouts are played immediately after the match, with each team being awarded five (5) kicks. If the score remains a tie after the penalties, a second set of penalty kicks is played with teams alternately playing one (1) kick each until the final winner is obtained. Only players who finished the match on the field may play penalties.
Every team registers eighteen (18) players for each game, provided that all players entered in the game records may play. Any player expelled from the game after a red card or two yellow cards cannot play in the following match.
Every other aspect of the game is regulated in keeping with the rules of football (FIFA).
The referees will be delegated by the Referee Commission of the Croatian Football Federation.
Matches will be played at stadiums “Laco” in Novigrad and “Gradski stadion” in Umag.
In the case of extremely bad weather conditions (rain), the matches will be played on the playground with artificial grass in Umag and Dajla.
