Interesting Info for WCP Cup 2011

Here is some info for the 2011 WCP Cup. It's the little things that make a tournament run and these are the details. Since nothing is all that big a deal, I've copied and pasted what was sent out - verbatim:
  • Each team will need to have their own flag and at least 10 members in team colors to march onto to the field for Nation Team introduction and remain on the field during the official WCP Cup Opening Ceremony. Further details will be discussed on Tuesday March 29th.
  • During games each team should provide a flag to hang from the Home and Visitors display stand.
  • Flags for display from the balcony will be provided by the WCP Organizing Committee - same as always.
  • Game balls will be provided throughout the whole tournament, warm-up balls will be provided for the Gold Medal games only.
  • Teams will be given warm-up times on the main field prior to each game, DO NOT warm up on the back fields when other activities are taking place.
  • Prior to each kick-off teams will be asked to line up and walk close to center field for the playing of each team's National Anthems, announcement of each team’s roster and team handshake. Teams are not required to “hip hip hooray” and shake hands after the final whistle.. the choice is yours.
  • Only the Gold Medal winners from 2010 will be allotted their own dressing room until elimination from the 2011 WCP Cup. Signature and deposit are required.
  • The manager of the “Home” team will be required to collect the game sheet from the front desk to present to the referee prior to the start of each game. The home team manager will also be required to collect the game sheet following the game and return it to the front desk once both teams and the Head Referee have signed the game sheet to confirm the results of the game. Scores and stats will not be posted until the game sheet has been handed in with all signatures.
  • Tournament ticket info will be announced by this weekend

warm up times of a minute or 2, or 10? and are there really player intros for every game? Thats all for now

Probably the same amount of time that is given for indoor league games. The games are scheduled 1 hour apart and each half is 25 minutes long. With a halftime that leaves about 6 minutes for warmups if everything is done on schedule. If the player intros are done before each game then there will be a lot less time unless the games get way behind schedule - which could definitely happen. So probably 2 to 3 minutes maximum for warmups.

I think it is kind of stupid that we have to get the game sheets, is it that hard for the someone to take it to the table?

I may be wrong, but in the PSL summer league supplying and collecting the game sheets by the home team is a pretty standard practice...not sure why someone would think it's dumb...pretty minor thing imo.

Standard practice for PSL but hasn't been standard practice for WCP in the last 6 years.

Wow was just trying to find my schedule on line on the home page and as I was surfing around and I found this blog.

I am excited as a veteran of soccer in saskatchewan to be playing in the WC for my very first time this year.

I usually take the winters off, but I got the itch to start my season sooner and am happy to see what this tourney has to offer.

I have heard nothing but wonderful things from this event, and big props to Kevin for taking this event to great heights.

Any time you can have an event as well organized and attended as this one in Saskatchewan it is an awesome thing for the game of soccer in our province.

Looking forward to my first one.

How do you find out who;s the home team and whos the visitors?

Playmaker said...

I'm guessing they'll decide that at the jerseys meeting on Tuesday. Usually the home team picks the jersey they'll wear, so it should hopefully be figured out by then.

What would you guys reccomend for footing for the Regina facility?

Indoor shoes vs cleats? and the advantages vs disadvantages for both with that turf?
