5. Competition format
12 years and younger
In the ages where playoffs are not allowed, games are played without a final winner according to the Swedish Football Association's regulations. In the first group stage, the teams are divided into groups of four or five teams where everyone faces everyone else. After that, a new draw is carried out where the teams are drawn into new groups and face new teams.

5.1 Group stage 13-16 years old
The teams are divided into groups where everyone plays against each other in a single series, followed by a playoff for everyone. First and second in each group go to the A playoffs. The third, fourth and fifth go to the B playoffs.
The order between the teams is determined by points. Victory 3 points, draw 1 point, loss 0 points.

The teams' position after the group stage is determined by the following:
1. Number of points.
2. Goal difference.
3. Most goals scored.
4. Mutual meeting.
5. Lottery.
(W.O. = 2-0)

5.2 Playoffs 13-16 years old
All teams advance from the group stage to the A or B playoffs. In the event of a loss in the playoffs, the team goes out of the tournament but then plays 1-2 placement matches. All teams are guaranteed 5-6 games during the tournament period. Luxcuper cannot be held responsible if teams are absent from/or drop out during the tournament.
In the event of a tie, a penalty shoot-out is resorted to according to FIFA regulations. Each team alternately shoots 3 penalty kicks each with different players. If it is still tied, the teams continue to shoot penalties, one penalty kick at a time with new players until the decision is made. Each penalty kick is taken by a different player and all players eligible to participate in the penalty kick competition must take one penalty kick before any player may take a second penalty kick. Return is not allowed in penalty kick competition. A ball that hits the goal frame and is on its way from the goal is counted as missed, as is the case of a goalkeeper parry.

6. Game time
11 vs 11 1 x 35 min.
9 vs 9 1 x 35min.
7 vs 7 2 x 20 min

Luxcuper arranges preparatory tournaments for the coming season. We therefore do not limit the number of participating players that the teams want to use in the cup or in individual matches. Substitution of players shall be applied by flying substitutions. Changes must take place at the center line. Incoming players may not enter the field before outgoing players have left the field. We urge everyone to let all players play at least 50% of the match.

Incorrect substitutions are punished with a warning.

Det är tillåtet att spela i äldre åldersklasser och flickor får spela med pojkar förutsatt att de har rätt ålder. Spelare som skall delta i flera lag skall finnas på varje lags deltagarförteckning. 

 *Undantag kan förekomma om lag vid skador eller av annan anledning indisponibla spelare. Vid dessa fall får alla lag låna in spelare upp till samma antal som de startade turneringen med. De spelare som ursprungligen tillhörde truppen ska starta och spela minst 50% av matchen. Inlånade spelare ska i första hand alltså starta på bänken. Ansökan om att låna in spelare från ett annat lag lämnas muntligen till cup-representant på plats. Cupledningen förbehåller sig rätten att bevilja eller avslå ansökan senast 20 minuter innan det ansökande lagets nästa match.
