©2016 NY MENS SOCCER

TOURNAMENT FORMAT: COED + MENS

Games are 6-a-side, meaning a ‘keeper and five outfield players. While the ‘keeper is non-gender specific, two of the outfield players must be female in the COED Tournament. 

Games are 25 minutes with no half-time and a running clock. 

Upon completion of the Group Stage, the Winners of each Group plus the 2nd-place team with the best record will proceed into the Semi-Finals. 

In the Group Stage if teams are tied on points, the following will be used to determine standings: 

1. Head-to-Head result (does not apply in a three-way tie) 
2. Goal Difference (Goals For - Goals Against) 
3. Goals For 
4. Goals Against 
5. Most Shutout Wins 
6. Penalty Kicks 

If a Semi-Final and/or the Final is tied, penalty-kicks will decide the outcome. These are best out-of-three before sudden death, as required. In the Coed tournament, one of the initial penalty-takers must be female and takers must progress through each player on the roster.
