Presidents' Cup Match Rules

Presidents' Cup Match Rule Advisory for Referees:

BAYS standard match rules apply except as noted.

No special tournament rosters and no "guest" players. Teams use their existing BAYS roster.

Each game must be played to a result.

If tied at the end of regulation time, two five-minute overtime periods will be played in full. No "golden goal"; no "sudden death".

If tied at the end of both overtime periods, the game shall be determined by FIFA-style penalties (penalty shoot-out)

The winner of the penalty shoot-out is awarded one(1) goal which is added to the number of goals at the end of the overtime period to determine the winner. 

If, in the referee's sole discretion, there is a lack of sufficient daylight or poor weather or field conditions, the referee may direct the teams to proceed directly to penalty kicks at the conclusion of regular time and omit the overtime periods.
