Kickstart your season!
Since 2011 Nordic Youth Trophy has drawn teams of all ages, levels and nationalities to Värmland. This fall U18 teams are next in line to get the chance to play the tournament where all teams play many games and all teams play playoffs on their own level. Welcome to the first edition of Nordic Youth Trophy U18!
The tournament is played with a qualification round followed by playoffs at different levels so that all teams will get to play against teams at similar level. This means even and tough games, especially in the deciding part of the tournament. All teams play playoffs and all teams get the opportunity to play many games during an intense weekend – early in the season. Simply the perfect way to start your season in preparation of your league start!
Example tournament format:
QUALIFYING PLAY, August 25-26: Teams are placed into 6-team groups, all teams in the group play each other, your team plays a total of 5 games.
PLAYOFFS, August 27: According to your team’s placement in the standings playoff groups are formed in different levels (A-, B-, C-playoffs and so on). All teams play playoffs. The two highest ranked teams in each playoff group qualifies directly for semifinals. The other four teams in each group play quarterfinals. 1-3 games in total in the playoffs.
Please note that the cup format is flexible and may be subject to change depending on number of teams in the cup.
