In each class the teams are divided into groups. Each team will play one match against all the other teams in the group. The point will be counted ; victory 3 p, draw 1 p, defeat 0 p

4. Penalty-competition between the involved teams in accordance with the regulations for penalties in this tournament.
(If this situation occurs the penalty-competition will take place after agreement between the teams and the Tournament Jury.) 

The two best teams in each group are qualified for the Play-off. In some group even a third team can qualify. The other teams play games to decide their finishing position.

The play-off matches will be played in accordance with the ”knock-out-system”. If a match ends in a draw there will be a penalty-competition to decide the winner.  This penalty-kick competition is played in accordance with the FIFA-regulation with one addition. Addition : If the game is not decided after the first 5 penalty-kicks; a player is allowed to take his second kick. If the game is not decided after the first 10 penalty-kicks a player is allowed to take his third kick etc. This addition is optional. It is allowed for one leader to enter the field of play during penalty-kicks (to decide a winner). One leader must remain at the touch-line with the substitutes.
