Divisions and Playing Levels

Three divisions are offered in most age groups:

  • Cup Competition – Premier League teams, division one teams, district representative teams and academies.
  • Plate Competition – Newly promoted division one teams and division two teams.
  • Shield Competition – Developing teams from lower placed divisions.

Due to the history of the number of entries in certain age groups, not all levels of competitions will be offered to every age group.

Teams are to nominate an appropriate level of competition within your age group.

Teams are required to provide records of their 2023 results and/or standings from their association competitions on registration.

The Kanga Cup Organising Committee (KCOC) reserves the right to place teams into divisions that may not be their nominated division.

Accreditation and Proof of Age

All registered players and officials will receive tournament identification in the form of wristbands and accreditation passes (officials only). These passes will provide access to all matches, special events and special deals (e.g. discounts).

All players in the tournament will be required to carry photo ID. If your team does not have Club/Association-issued ID cards, we have templates available here:

Extra Time and Finals

Extra time will only be played in finals/playoffs matches, if the scores between the two teams are tied at the end of normal time. Then a two-minute break followed by two periods of 5 -10 mins (age dependent).

If there is still no result, a penalty shootout will then ensue.
