Number of teams

We can accept 28 male teams and 12 ladies teams.

Amount of games

All teams will play a minimum of 6 games, some teams going to the finals will play 7. All teams will play 2 games on Friday, so make sure you book travels accordingly. Games start on Friday at 10am.

Rules

1) The standings in a group are determined based on:
- number of points (3 for win of a game, 1 for draw), if equal;
- goals scored minus goals conceded, if equal;
- goals scored, if equal;
- result of direct match between the teams, if equal;
- less bench penalties, if equal;
- draw by the organization
2) Tying a game is accepted in the group games but if a game is tied after regular playing time in a PLAYOFF game there will be a penalty shootout, starting with 3 shots for each team. If its still tied, penalty shooting continues one at a time (in the same order and with the same 3 players that has already made one attempt) until one team scores a goal and the other team misses (sudden death)
3) Playing time is NOT effective. In other words, time will not be stopped when the ball is out of play. The Exception is in the final where the last 3 minuts will be effective time. Likewise time-outs are not allowed in any game but the final where both team have the right to take one time-out.
4) If your team has not arrived and/or are not ready to play 5 minutes after the official game start you will lose the game 5-0, so please be there on time!
5) In the case of teams having the same dress colors, the one listed as the away team in the official match schedule is obliged to change shirts.
6) The games will be played according to official IFF rules if not mentioned otherwise in the above rules. This also means according to new changes that the ball can NOT intentionally be passed to your own goalkeeper.
7) In situations where none of the above rules apply, the organization has the right to decide.

The tournament will be played according to the valid IFF rules with the exception that there will be no team timeout in the group matches.

Table duties

For those of you who have not played Amsterdamned before: We need all teams help with doing table (game secretary) duties. Now, the good news is that you only do it after you played a game in which you were the away team. This means that you only need to do the duties 1-2 times on Saturday and likely 1 time on Sunday. I very much appreciate your help here. There will be instructions available on the table, its really very easy job and a good way of getting the best seats for other games.

Awards

The best 3 teams in Amsterdamned 2017 in both categories will receive a trophy and medals. There will also be an award for "Awesome at Amsterdamned", which is a price that any team can win no matter the game results.

Party/Barbeque

After the games on Friday there will be a Barbeque for hungry and thirsty players. This year the party will be at Macy's (same place as last year) which is on walking distance from the hall. http://www.haarlemmermeerstation.nl/

Massage/physio therapy

During the tournament physio therapy students will be giving free (for a small tip) massage and help injured players.
