BEHAVIOR OF THE TEAMS
If a team demonstrates a violent attitude during the competition (protests against refereeing decisions, confrontation with opponents or with the organization, etc.) it may be automatically expelled from the tournament.
All cases of serious expulsion will be reported to the National Federation of the country of the player concerned.
In the case of a violent attitude by players attached to the Royal Spanish Football Federation or Spanish Territorial Federations, these cases will be reported to them, providing names and surnames of those involved, being these federations and their sanctioning bodies those who could impose disciplinary sanctions.
The delegates of the teams will be responsible for the attitude and behavior of their players towards the referees, teammates, opponents, public, organization and materials of the sports facilities (locker rooms, benches, playing fields,…).
The organization will inspect the locker rooms before and after each game with the delegates of each team to certify that they are used correctly. In case of any damage to the benches, locker rooms or playing field, the delegate, the team and the person who causes such damage or destruction will be responsible for them.
The Organizing Committee reserves the right to make changes in the match program, both in terms of the division of groups, schedules and playing fields.
The team manager will be notified of the changes.
All changes will be communicated in turn on the Internet and SMS.
