Tournament Information Weymouth
The Weymouth Mayday Classic's popularity has grown to such an extent that it is now one of our most sought after tournaments, with demand outstripping supply - and it's easy to see why.
The tournament is held at the excellent Redlands Leisure centre which offers one of the best football facilities in Weymouth.

Tournament Format - general
The actual format of each tournament will depend on the ages and number of teams taking part, with full details being supplied as far in advance of your departure as possible. What we can tell you is that you can be sure of a well organised and planned event with every detail taken care of.
We will do our best to ensure that every team plays the maximum amount of football permitted by the FA on each day of the event in which they participate or qualify. Age groups below are general for all UK tournaments - please check the chart below for which age groups can enter your specific tournament.
U7 & U8 (non competitive) – maximum 45 minutes each day
U9, U10, U11m – maximum 60 minutes each day
U11 playing 9V9 - maximum 80 minutes each day
U11 to U16 – maximum 100 minutes each day
All girls age groups U10 - U16 will be playing as 7 a side
Girls U18 & Ladies Open Age (where applicable) - 11 a side
In most cases, teams of the same age are divided into groups (the number in each group will depend on the number of teams which enter in that age group). Teams will play a league format and in most cases the winner and runner up of each group will go through to a semi-final to determine the eventual finalists.
Due to differing qualifying dates applying in Scotland, Ireland, and Europe, these teams will play in an age group one year above their own.
Referees at our Tournaments
We have built up a nucleus of quality referees that look forward to attending our events; many have been with us since our UK tournaments began. We will provide qualified referees throughout the competition, as well as qualified assistant referees for the finals. You will therefore be asked to put forward a volunteer assistant referee for the early round matches.
In order to qualify for our tournaments, your team must be affiliated to a County or Schools FA. We DO NOT allow Representative, Football Academy, or Schools of Excellence teams to enter. However, individual players from such teams are allowed as 'guest players' within teams who are eligible to enter the tournament.
Football schedules, location of pitches, and all tournament information will be displayed on our website approximately 7 days prior to the start of the tournament, in the My Schedules section. It is extremely important to check this information beforehand.
First Aid at Football Venues
Injuries unfortunately can happen, and when they do it is essential to have adequate first aid cover. We provide excellent first aid cover at all football venues using the services of organisations such as St Johns Ambulance, Red Cross or other qualified paramedics.
