LAUNCESTON MITSUBISHI Tournament – Organised by the Northern Tasmanian Junior Soccer Association
All about the Launceston Mitsubishi Tournament
"The facilities were great and it was well organised"
The 2017 Launceston Mitsubishi Tournament will be held on Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd and Sunday the 24th of September. Most games are held at the large Churchill Park sports complex in Launceston, with a park only minutes away having been used for overflow games in the past. The tournament is organised by the Northern Tasmanian Junior Soccer Association and sanctioned by Football Federation Tasmania, with many thanks to our major sponsor Launceston Mitsubishi, who has been a major advocate of junior football in our region for many years.
The Launceston Tournament, now over 25 years strong, is the largest youth football tournament in Tasmania and has welcomed a number of interstate teams in the past. The tournament caters for boys and girls in age groups from U9 – U16, with teams rostered a minimum of four games. Games are held on the Friday evening/night and all day on Saturday and Sunday.
Any team whose players are registered with Football Federation Australia is eligible to participate whether they be club, association or even school based. Grouping of teams into divisions will depend on the number of teams entered in that particular age group. The tournament is held purely for the enjoyment and advancement of the children who participate. Everyone involved is expected to follow the codes of conduct of Football Federation Australia. Rules are adapted from the current FIFA and ALDI MiniRoos rules and accredited referees are appointed to all games.
