3v3 TOURNAMENT - Overview

  • Each team plays with 3 outfield players and no Goalkeepers.
  • Mini goals are used and teams can only score from inside their attacking half.
  • Teams can have up to 2 x substitutes. They can make roll on/off subs at any stage if there is a break in play and the referee has been notified.
  • Matches are played on hard surfaces and are 2 x 9-minute halves with a 1-minute halftime interval. 
  • Matches will start on the whistle from the referee and finish on a whistle. Teams must be ready on the court at kick off time.
  • Offsides apply from in line with the centre circle.
  • Kick ins are used instead of throw ins and freekicks are always indirect.
  • Players are not allowed to touch the ball inside the penalty boxes. If an attacking player touches the ball inside the oppositions penalty box it will be an indirect freekick to the defending team. If a defender touches the ball inside their own penalty box it will be a penalty kick to the attacking team – which is taken as a free shot at goal from the centre circle.
