Rules Overview: The normal rules of Association Football apply. Each team will play a minimum of 6 games. Each game consists of 17 minutes each way.
Pennants: It is customary for teams to exchange pennants at the beginning of each game
FREE Gift: Each player receives a momento, available for collection from the organisers tent on the morning of the 2nd day of the tournament
Stalls: Need some new kit?  There’ll be stalls selling footballs, boots & a large selection of sports equipment at reasonable prices
Food & Drink: Refreshments are available throughout the tournament
Tents & Marquees: Looking for a space to base yourself in?  There’s plenty of room around the tournament area. Several teams erect their own tents, an ideal way of keeping the players together and protecting them from the ‘hot sun’ that we get in Blackpool!  If you wish to have a marquee erected for you prior to your arrival, please call Ken at CK Marquees on 07774 225539
