Every weekend, four associations take part in an association tournament.
Tournaments are generated on Thursday and they take place during weekends.
Your association needs to have a minimum of four members before tournaments are generated, otherwise you won't be able to take part in them that weekend.
The scheduled times can’t be changed because otherwise they would interfere with other matches.
Associations receive points when playing in a tournament as follows:
3 points for every match won by an association member
1 point for every match drawn by an association member
Additional points are also awarded according to the association’s finishing place in the tournament:
1st place: 50 points
2nd place: 25 points
3rd place: 10 points
The more points your association receives, the more likely you will be promoted to a higher division at the end of the season.
Tie break criteria: If two associations have the same number of points in the Semi-finals or Finals of a tournament, the first tie-break criteria will be the goals scored during the finals/3rd position playoff. If the tie persists, then the away goals scored during the finals/3rd position playoff define the final outcome. Other factors, like total goals in the tournament, total away goals in the tournament, fair play or overall FA points might apply if the tie still persists after that.
