Sat 13 May 2017, 08:30 – 19:00 BST
Youth tournament returns to FGR
The annual youth football tournament returns to Forest Green this summer, giving FA affiliated local teams the chance to compete against each other at the New Lawn.
The Forest Green Rovers FC Youth Tournament sponsored by Grundon will take place on Saturday 13th May 2016 for 6-a-side teams aged from under 8’s to under 12’s.
Each team is allowed a squad of up to 10 players, and will play a minimum of 4, 8 minute matches in a group format. The group winners will then compete in the cup final, with the two second placed teams playing a third place shield final.
Entry costs £30 per team and a full information pack is available here.
The day is split into two sections in order to reduce the length of the day for players’ and families. The time kick off time for the first match in each session is as follows, teams are required to arrive no more than 30 minutes before the time of the first match and groups should not need to be at the stadium for any more than four hours:
Youth Session 1: 9:00 - Under 8's and 9's
Youth Session 2: 13:30 Under 10's, 11's and 12's
All teams must register and pay for their place in the tournament by 1st April 2017 via the official ‘eventbrite’ page. Please note, tournament entry fees are non refundable and non transferable.
When you arrive the coach from each team must report to the administration area and to notify a member of staff that the whole team has arrived, at this point the team will be marked as attended and will be allowed to play. The first matches of each group will start at the time given to the team organiser prior to the day so teams will need to be on site at the arrival time provided.
The full fixture list, the arrival and the start time for the day will be given to you after the registration closing date and also will also be found in your match day programme.
