Only those responsible are allowed in the technical area. Random controls will be done at any moment.

It is not allowed to play without a number on the shirt. If it is necessary to change the shirt during the match, due to the similarity between the two teams, it is the team that appears first (left on the schedule), the home team, in the match schedule that changes equipment. The use of shin guards is mandatory.

All teams must be ready and on the field 30 minutes before the start of the match with the players' documents ready for age control.

Misconduct or inappropriate behavior may result in the loss of the match (if the referee decides to end the match due to lack of conditions) or the expulsion of the team from the tournament. The head of the team must, immediately at the end of the match, sign the minutes, confirming the result, the cards and other details of the match. Failure to complete this procedure will result in a notification by the Jury of the tournament.

If a team does not appear repeatedly in the matches, it can be expelled from the tournament. In special cases, the jury may decide to expel the team on the first non-attendance.
