To allow more flow to our tournament games, players may substitute freely without the referee's permission under the following conditions:

- The substitution occurs after a stoppage in play when the ball goes out of play. This does not include free kicks (direct, indirect, or penalty).

- The players coming off the field must exit on the bench side of the field. Failure to follow this condition will result in a yellow card.

- Players coming on must wait at the center flag until players coming off have left the field.

Play will not be held up for the substitutions to be completed. Get them done as quickly as possible.
