All games in the Kickoff Classic Festival will be played using FIFA rules, as modified for normal MSI Classic League play. All games will be 25 minutes in length (except U13 and U14s, who will play 3 full-sided games of 11v11 with 25 minute halves). All players must be rostered and carded to their MSI Classic team, with the following exceptions.
- Guest players are allowed, up to a maximum of half your roster size. These guest players must hold a player pass, just like each team's regularly rostered players. (Passes will not be checked at the Kickoff Classic.)
- Tryout players are allowed, and do not need to carded players (since they are only at the tryout stage).
There will be no recording of scores or presentation of standings, reflecting the emphasis on development and fun!
