Championship Match Rules

Updated Sunday March 13, 2016 by Port Weller Soccer League.

            Championship Match Rules:

The same Laws of the Game that govern the regular season, during any Championship Match.

 

In the event of a tie after regulation time  a 5 minute  SUDDEN DEATH overtime period will be played.

 First goal wins.

If the game is still tied after the overtime period, Penalty Kicks will determine the  winner.

Each team will choose 5 players (shooters). The chosen players must have been on the playing field when overtime period ended. The goalie may be changed, but it must be for a player that was on the playing field when overtime ended.

The goalie may be chosen as one of the kickers         

          ii) All ten players will alternate taking a penalty kick, and after each player has

          completed his kick, the team scoring the most goals will determine the winner.

        iii) if the game is still tied after the 10 penalty kicks, a 6th player is chosen from each

team. The chosen player must have been on the field of play when the overtime period ended. The chosen 6th players each take a SUDDEN DEATH Penalty Kick. If one player scores and the other does not, the team of the player who scored is the winner.

          If the game is still tied after the 6th player, a 7th player is chosen as above, and this

          continues until a winner can be declared.         

iv) Penalty Kick rules apply and the goalie must remain on the goal line until the ball is is motion.                            

           

          v) All players, except the one taking Penalty Kick and the goalkeeper, must remain

behind the line of the 18 yard box and not in view of the kicker. Players who were not on the field during the sudden death period, may join their teammates on the field, but must be seperated from the chosen penalty kickers.

Players must be respectful and show good sportsmanship towards both the kicker and the keeper.

If the defending team is deemed to be disrespectful to the kicker: (loud/distrative behaviour)

  1. and a goal is scored – the goal will stand
  2. and a goal is not scored- another penalty kick will be awarded

If  the kicking team is deemed to be disrespectful to the keeper: (loud/distractive behaviour)

  1. and a goal is scored- the goal will not stand
  2. a goal is not scored- the next kicker will proceed

          vi) The area behind the goal will be cleared of spectators.         

          vii) A coin toss will determine which team kicks first.
