Registration rules

1. Which teams can participate?

In the Donosti Cup, federated soccer clubs, soccer schools, technification academies, official territorial or national teams, sports management entities, and schools participating in school leagues may participate. These entities must be legally constituted and have their own CIF. Therefore, teams formed only to participate in the tournament and that do not belong to any of the aforementioned entities will not be allowed.

2. How many teams may each entity register?

In order to promote the most diverse, international and equal participation possible, each of the above mentioned entities may enter a maximum of 10 teams of the same gender (male or female) in each edition. The maximum number that an entity may register is 20 teams, as long as there are 10 male teams and 10 female teams. On the other hand, each entity may enter a maximum of 2 teams per category in 11-a-side, and a maximum of 3 teams per category in 8-a-side, without exceeding the aforementioned figures in total.

3. Limited places

Based on the accommodation capacity and the number of playing fields, the Organization will establish a maximum quota of participation in each edition. Once this quota is reached, registrations will be closed.

4. Right of admission

The Donosti Cup reserves the right of admission with the objective of guaranteeing at all times compliance with the rules established in the sections related to sportsmanship and coexistence.

5. Deadlines for payments

To confirm the registration, an advance payment of 900.00 euros per team must be made within 10 days. This deposit will be subtracted when making the final payment.

The final payment must be made by June 1 at the latest.

6. Method of payment

Payments must be made by bank transfer to the official tournament account. The details of this account will be provided upon receipt of the formal registration for the tournament.

7. Cancellation fees
