  • The Winner will be the school with the most points.
  • Runner- up will be the school with the second most points.
  • In the event two schools have the same number of points then positions will be decided on goal difference. In the event that schools are tied on goal difference then they will be declared joint premiers.

Rules and Offside

  • Please feel free to visit the below website for the latest rules set by FIFA:
  • The main rule to get your head around will be the ‘Offside’ Rule. I will leave ‘Play-on’ calls to the discretion of the teacher refereeing the match, but there must be an advantage to the team who has the penalty.
