Spring 2008 - MasterCard ClubFootball Weekend 5-a-side League|
The Spring 2008 MasterCard ClubFootball Weekend 5-a-side League kicks off on Saturday 19th April at ClubFootball Xiaowuji, with matches held every Saturday.
The competition begins on Saturday 19th April, and runs to Saturday 7th June 2008, with each team playing 2 matches every Saturday. Due to the number of teams entering, the tournament will follow a slightly altered format - the 12 competing teams are divided into two groups of 6, with each team playing the other 5 teams in the group twice over 5 weeks.
At the end of the 5 weeks, the first and second-placed teams in each group play off for places 1-4, the third and fourth-placed teams play for places 5-8, and the fifth and sixth placed teams play for positions 9-12. Final positions will be used to determine the starting positions in future competitions.
Matches are played from 13:00pm to 16:00pm with each team playing 2 x 30-minute matches each matchday. Results and tables will be posted on the ClubFootball website and mailed weekly to all players, with trophies awarded to the winners and runners-up of each division.
Tournament Format and Rules
All matches will be refereed by a ClubFootball member of staff, and players and teams not competing in the spirit of Fair Play expected by participants will be expelled from the tournament.
