Playing rules and format
Based on availability we are aiming for 3 full size fields;
The max. number of team players is 16, with no more than 14 players making up a team/match;
The FIT 5 (trial) rules will apply at the event;
With current team numbers the games will be 20-24 minutes with a break;
If there is a tie, the try difference will decide the winner;
As it is a mixed tournament we will be applying this ruling regarding female players:
General rule: On the field there must me a max of 3 male players and a minimum of 1 female players. You may therefore play with 4 players;
Penalty: For every additional male player on the field there will be a deduction of 1 point per half.
For example, if there are 5 male players and 1 female player on the field at the beginning of the half time, 2 points will be deducted. The same will apply to the second half making a total of 4 points deduction.
One male and one female MVP will be selected at the end of the tournament.
Each team is required to have at least one player-ref to support the official referee's during the tournament;
Touring referee's (non-player referee's) are also more than welcome. For these referee's we've reserved an incentive ($) in the budget as well as free lunch and dinner and free entry to the after party. Referee's have the licence to party the hardest - get your referee's involved.
Lunch (~12:00 - 14:00) and dinner (~17:30+) will be served at the grounds;
Afterparty will be in the city from 20:30 (Waterkant);
There is free parking at the venue (https://www.amsterdamtouch.com/fields);
The tournament will be played on both natural grass and Astro turf;
Physios will be present (ArenaFysio);
Teams will be provided with rubbish bags to clean after themselves. We kindly ask you to leave the place as you found it.
Water taps are available at the locations on the field map in link;
Clubhouse is open for ordering food and drink (upper floor);
Changing rooms are open and toilets are a the clubhouse (both on ground floor).
To ensure a smooth time schedule, please make sure your team is on time and your designated player-referee knows when they are needed and at which field they are needed --> share the draw with your players!;
Respect your opponents and the referee's;
Dispose your team's rubbish in the bins provided :D
Last minute accommodation tips
Accommodation close to Sloterdijk is preferable, we don't have any deals with the hotels at the moment - they don't need us :(. I would recommend Sloterdijk as it is a little closer to the fields (and gives an option for the bus) plus is relatively close to where we plan the after party location (Waterkant). It's also easy to get into the center from Sloterdijk (with bike, train, tram or metro -> or walking!).
We've heard good things about the XO hotels - they can usually accommodate larger numbers. The closer you stay to the center the more expensive it is usually.
De Sport Camping: Close to pitches (they also have pre-made tents) https://www.desportcamping.nl/nl/
Zeeburg Camping: quite far from pitches https://www.campingzeeburg.nl/
