Game Day Roster
The match day roster for 7v7 and 9v9 teams is a maximum of 14 players as in accordance with MYSA rostering.
Unlimited substitutions are permitted during all matches.
The Premier League will follow the rule of not allowing player ages 10 (U11) and below to head the ball during games.
When a player deliberately heads the ball in a game, an indirect free kick should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense. If the deliberate header occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the infringement occurred. If a player does not deliberately head the ball, then play should continue.
The home team will wear white colored jerseys.
The away team will wear dark colored jerseys.
It is the responsibility of the home team to provide the game card prior to the start of the match. Teams can download the game card from their GotSoccer Team Account. If the home team fails to provide the game card, they must email the score of the game to firstname.lastname@example.org.
