Extra Time Policy for Knockout Rounds

During the elimination (knockout round) matches, in the event of a match being tied at the end of normal time, extra time will be played until a winner is determined. After a break of one minute, extra time will be played in periods of five minutes. After each period, the teams will change ends without interval. In extra time the team which scores first will immediately be declared the winner without further play.

ROSTER SIZE

Event rosters can have up to 15 players per team. For each individual match, teams may dress 12 players for each match and will only be allowed the standard five substitutions per match.
