Every member of your party booked with R&T Tours will be allocated an R&T wristband. Please be aware that persons without an R&T wristband will not be able to participate in the football tournament or attend the presentation ceremony. Wristbands cannot be purchased separately.


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 score centre approximately 7 days prior to the start of the tournament. It is extremely important to check this information beforehand.


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 medics.


We do not accept dogs at any of our UK tournaments.
