Soccer 7s face the heat

PHUKET: As Phuket prepares for a soaking next weekend with the arrival of Songkran, spare a thought for those braving the searing heat to compete in the Phuket Songkran International Soccer 7s tournament.

Wednesday 4 April 2012, 05:51PM

Held next Saturday (April 14), the tournament will celebrate its 10th anniversary as 40 teams from across Asia, Australasia, Europe and the Middle East converge on Phuket.

Teams will compete in both Open and Masters (over-35) divisions, with three levels of competition – Cup, Plate and Bowl – in each.

Teams have seven players each, while matches are 15 minutes long and are played to Fifa rules, with the exception of rolling substitutes and no offside. Teams are allowed a maximum of 12 players in their squads and the games will be played on 70m x 45m pitches, with full-size goals.

All games will be played at Thanyapura Sports and Leisure Centre. Spectators are welcome to attend.
