The necesarry Do's and Dont's!
A team consists of 8 players (goalkeeper included), of which at least one have to be Japanese; unlimited change of players is allowed. To generate more action and thus more enthusiasm the matches will be played on half fields. A competition committee and a referee coordinator will rule the competition; the referees in the field are all KNVB-certified (KNVB = Dutch Football Federation). The referee can exclude a player 5 minutes from the game or permanently from tournament.
Each team will play 5 matches; after that the numbers 1 and 2 will play the final.
The final will also be played in 15 minutes. At a drawn game extra time of twice 5 minutes will be added to the match. If that’s without any result five penalties must be taken. If there is no final outcome by then penalties have to be taken until a team misses.
The matches (15 minutes) will be played as much as possible according to the rules of indoor football above all fair play rules! Change of fields during the match is not permitted. A central sound signal will mark the start and the end of the match.
The J-Dream Cup Trophy
As this is a mini tournament we don't have the challenge trophy this year. But of course the winning team will receive the winning J-Dream Mini Cup.
