Q Where are the rules posted?
A The rules are posted HERE
Q Who Wins The Division?
A Game winners will be awarded 3 points for a win. If a game is tied at full time there will be extra time with sudden death goals (in other words if a teams scores in extra time they automatically win the game as time will end). If after extra time the game is still tied then sudden death penalties will be taken. There are no draws in beach soccer. If there are the same points for more than 1 team then goal difference will be taken into account with with “goals for” being the first consideration, if that is the same then goals against will be next. If both are still the same, then sudden death penalties will be taken between the 2 highest point/goal difference teams. If there are too many teams for a single division then teams will be split down into more than one division with each division winners coming together to play a “semi-final” or “final” game to decide who the division or bracket winners are……..
