General Competition Information:

  1. Each competition will consist of no more than 8 teams.
  2. In the event of washouts, the MFA will exercise best endeavours to reschedule lost matches. In the event matches cannot be rescheduled a 0-0 draw will apply.
  3. Kick off times for the entire competition will be scheduled prior to the first match.  It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fully aware of your kick off times and know that these times cannot be changed at the team’s discretion, only by the MFA under extreme circumstances.
  4. Junior matches are 2 x 15 minute halves and senior matches are 2 x 20 minute halves.
  5. Each team is to organise their own playing kits (shirt, shorts, socks), ensuring the team is wearing the same colours. Kits must be numbered. MFA apparel partners Stanno offer a huge range of Summer Football kits to choose from. Click through to the Stanno online store to organise your kits today.
  6. Shin guards must be worn. Referees will not allow players to participate without them.
  7. Jewellery is not permitted to be worn under any circumstances.
  8. All senior matches will be played with a revolutionary ball that has been designed specifically for summer football. This ball is slightly smaller than an outdoor ball and larger than a Futsal ball. The intention for this ball is to keep it in play longer and able players to make more passes without losing any match time chasing balls.
