FC Georgia United - Memorial Tournament O60 Division

The 1st Memorial Tournament

  FC Georgia United

 The possible location and date: ERP, Saturday June 18 or June 25 or July 30, 2022

Dear soccer friends,

 

In memory of our deceased club soccer players, a memorial tournament will be held each year for all female and male club members sixty years of age and older.

 

The purpose of the tournament is to bring the senior soccer players of our club together for a fair game and most importantly to enjoy the spirit of our sport. Our deceased club players loved soccer, they loved the community that supported the sport, and they enjoyed the friendships that grew out of it.

 

With the support of the Board of FC Georgia United, we are hosting the first annual FC Georgia United O60 Memorial Soccer Tournament at (location, month, and day have not yet been determined), 2022.

 

Once we know how many club members have registered for this tournament, we will decide the number of teams and what formation we will play. The registration deadline will be three weeks before the tournament. The maximum number of participants should not exceed 50. The final decision about how we play the tournament will be made by the committee based on the number of participants.

 

Banquet

 

After the tournament, it is our pleasure to invite you and your significant other to attend the Banquet Saturday evening that will include a dinner buffet, awards ceremony, and a get-together.

 

General Rules for the Tournament

 

  • Maximum 50 players should take part in the tournament.
  • Before the tournament two responsible players divide the registered players into equal teams and if necessary, in two different groups.
  • Each team will play minimum two games. The first game of the teams will be drawn, which team plays against which team. The second game will be between the winning teams and between the non-winning teams.
  • There will be a 15-minute break between the two games.
  • Games will have two thirty-minute halves with a five-minute half-time break.
