Venues

The venues at Limone Cup are carefully selected to ensure a top atmosphere during the tournament. The games will mainly be played on artificial fields on venues within 25 km from The Garda Village. This means limited transportation to the games, and more time to experience Italy and enjoy the trip. Some of the group games and the finals on Wednesday will be played on the recognized venue Centro Sportivo Montichiarello, which is owned by Voluntas Montichiari who is one of the clubs that FC Internationale’s is cooperating with. One of the other venues we have used earlier, is the training ground of Hellas Verona.

Medals, trophies and awards

All participants at Limone Cup are guaranteed a Limone Cup medal, and all participants in the finals will receive both a trophy and a finalist medal. After each final there will be an award ceremony with music and confetti. At the award ceremony there will be selected a MVP from each team, and they will receive a present.

Rules

In all games, it is allowed to put in one extra player on the field, per three goals behind:

0-2 goals behind: 0 extra players on the pitch.

3-5 goals behind: 1 extra player on the pitch, for the team who is behind.

6-8 goals behind: 2 extra players on the pitch, for the team who is behind.

So it continues, for each three goals extra, the team who is behind, can put in an extra player.

In case of two or more teams being equal, the group standing is decided by:

                     B: goal division in all matches

                     C: most goals scored

                     D: Penalties shoot out

Ball sizes, etc.:

Each team must bring one football for each match; the first mentioned team in the match schedule brings the football to be used in the match. In the groups where the age groups are combined, it is possible that the teams play with different ball sized. In this case the games are played with the smallest ball size unless anything else is agreed between the teams.

If both teams have the same colour of shirts, the last mentioned team in the match schedule changes shirts.

A player can only be registered in the tournament for one team, unless an agreement has been made with the leader of the tournament.

Dispensations:

At 11-a-side a team may use 3 players with age dispensation per match and at 8-a-side a team may use 2 players with age dispensation. The team is allowed to have age dispensation for more than 3 players (11-a-side) and 2 players (8-a-side), but they can only have the allowed number of players with age dispensation in each match. All players with age dispensation (also players born in the last half of the year) must be registered for the tournament beforehand. There are no dispensations allowed in the U14/U13 girls 8-a-side group.
