Play-off Format

Play-offs will be in a round robin format.

In Cup Day games in U13 and older divisions, a team will be awarded 3 points for a win, 2 points for a shoot-out win, 1 point for a shoot-out loss, and zero points for a loss in regulation time.

There will be no ties. All games that are tied at the end of regulation time, will immediately proceed to a 3-player shoot-out (penalty kicks) by using only players who were on the field at the end of regulation time. If the teams are still tied after each team has taken three penalty kicks, FIFA sudden-death penalty kicks will be taken until a winner is declared.

The team winning a game in regulation time will be awarded bonus points based on the game’s goal differential, up to a maximum of three points per game. The losing team does not lose bonus points. Bonus points are not awarded for shoot-out wins.

The ranking of teams is based upon the total number of game points. Teams with the same number of game points will be ranked according to the following tie-breaker criteria:
1) Winner of the game between the tied teams (including a shoot-out win)
2) Most wins in regulation time
3) Most bonus points
4) Most goals for in regulation time
5) Fewest goals against in regulation time
6) Fewest losses including shoot-out losses
7) Most shut-outs for in regulation time
8) Fewest shut-outs against in regulation time
9) Fewest goals against in shoot-outs
10) Most goals for in shoot-outs
11) A single toin coss performed by a tournament official
