Tournament - Regulations

- The tournament is played according to the regulations of IHF.

The preliminary matches will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then all teams will be divided into groups. All teams within a group will eventually meet each other in a match.

The winning team and the runner-up (and possibly third place as well) of every group continue to the A-finals, whereas the other teams go directly to the B-finals.

The A- and B-finals take place on Tuesday and Friday. Here the teams are once again divided into groups, and every team get to play against all other teams in their group. The winning team from every group moves on to the semi-finals/finals. The semifinals and finals are played on Friday night and Saturday morning as a Cup tournament.

The handling over of prizes will take place Friday evening, July 13 2018, after each final in Hal 1 (only "All Stars").

The big prize presentation takes place on Saturday, July 14 2018, at 2:30 p.m. in Hal 1 for the other teams (U12-U19).

The plan for A- and B-finals will be handed out to the handball clubs on Wednesday night.

There will be a cup and individual prizes to both the winning team and the runner-up in the A-finals as well as to the winners of the B-finals.

The handing over of prizes for the remaining teams (U12-U19) will take place after each final.

The tournament is played according to the regulations of IHF (The International Handball Federation).

However we have these special regulations:

Before the first game of a match, it is very important to fill in and hand in a TEAM CARD to the Tournament Management.

The players are to use the same number on their jersey during the entire tournament.

If the team card has NOT been filled in and handed in to the management in due time, the team runs the risk of losing the match 0-5.

When the first match has been played it will no longer be possible to add new players to the team card.

Max 14 players must be used per match.

If a club uses illegal players (too old) - the club has to pay a fine of DKK 1500 /210€ - and the team will be losing all matches 5-0 of the total tournament.

Resin may be used but only by players from U14 upwards.

Football boots may be used on the outdoor courts.

In case of a penalty throw, the time will not be automatically stopped

Timeout is not used in the tournament.

The opening rounds are played on Tuesday and Wednesday. The teams are divided into groups, where all teams play against each other.

However, with the exception of "All Stars". All playing introductory Monday to Thursday and then going to the semi-finals in the A playoffs and group endgame in B.

The winning team and no. 2 (if necessary no. 3) go to the A-final matches. The remaining teams go to the B-Final matches.

When selecting for the A-finals the best team(s) among those that have achieved third place in each group, it will be taken into consideration whether or not the group in question has been made up of an equal amount of teams. If some groups consist of five teams and other groups of only four in the same category, the team which has achieved the lowest score in the groups of five teams will be removed (all points and goals are reset in these matches).

If two teams have an identical number of points after the preliminary matches and in the A- and B-finals, following order of priority will be used to determine which team moves on:

    1. Points in mutual match(es)
    2. Goal difference in mutual match(es)
    3. Most scored goals in mutual match(es)
    4. Best positive goal difference - all matches.
    5. Most scored goals - all matches.
    6. Rematch

The program for the A- and B-finals will be published Wednesday evening.

The A- and B-final matches are played on Thursday onwards.

The teams are again divided into groups, where all teams play against each other.

The winning teams from each group go to the finals/semi-finals (also no. 2 in some groups). The finals and semi-finals will be played Friday evening and Saturday morning as a cup tournament.

In case of a draw after the normal duration of a match, the semifinals and finals will be extended with 2 times 3 minutes, 2 times 3 minutes, then 1 times 3 minutes, 1 times 3 minutes etc., until one of the teams wins the match.
