– the result of the direct match; if equal:
– goals scored minus goals conceded; if equal:
– goals scored; if equal:
– fewer penalty minutes; if equal:
– a random draw by the organization. 

• The playing time is 2 x 15 minutes running time in both competitions, except the last 1 minute is effective.

• Time-outs are not allowed.

• Resting time is 3 minutes.

• If a game is tied after regular playing time in a play-off game there will be a penalty shootout, starting with three shots from each team. If it’s still tied, the shoot-out will continue until one team scores a goal and the other team misses.

• The games will be played according to official IFF-rules.

• It is not allowed to switch between teams or play in multiple teams during the tournament. Doing so could get both teams disqualified. An exception can be made for goalies if both IFF comittee and the direct opponents agree.

• When a team is not ready at the start of a game they get a penalty of one goal for every minute the team is late with a maximum of five goals, after that time the team has lost the match.

• In case the teams have the same outfit, the away team in the official match schedule is required to change outfits. Shirts will be provided by the organisation.

• In any situation the organisation always has the final verdict.
