Event details: 

University Mixed Outdoor Nationals will be held on this weekend at Durham University (.

For this Mixed event, each point will be played with 3 of one gender and 4 of the other (offence decides which). Make sure you have enough of both!

We'll run a Swiss Draw format like last year (similar to Windmill) which will give us a fair tournament with lots of close matches even though we expect a sizeable number of teams. We have capacity for 32 teams this year - apologies for it being somewhat smaller than last year, but finding a large venue which is not clogged with a backlog of football has been very difficult in this extremely wet winter!

 

We do not guarantee to be able to provide accommodation for everyone, but we will try and source as much as we can with local players or in scout huts. Please do not ask for accommodation unless you really need it as it's likely to be a challenge for an event this size!

 

Entries are now open through the UKU Entry Form. The closing date for entries will be Friday 4th March. We understand that it's not always easy to get payment sorted through your uni, so you do not need to pay by that date to secure your spot - but if you are signed up as of that date, and are offered a spot, you will be liable for the fees if you subsequently pull out. Don't enter a team just on the off chance you might take up the spot!

 

Any spaces remaining after that date will be awarded on a first come first served basis.

If the tournament is over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order:

  • Teams not on the blacklist (for dropping out late from an event in the last 12 months) will be given priority over those who are. Blacklisted 1st teams will be below all other 1st teams, but ahead of any second teams.
  • Teams finishing in the top half of last year's event will be given priority, in order of finishing position.
  • First teams qualified for UXIN Division 1 this year will be given priority, in order of finishing position.
  • Remaining first teams will be ranked ahead of second teams, and second ahead of third etc.
  • Within the group of first teams (and within second etc, if it gets that far) teams will be ranked in order of the higher of a) their finishing position at Mixed Indoors or b) the AVERAGE of their finishing positions at Men's and Women's Indoors.
  • If there remain too many teams - which cannot be separated by the above - for the remaining places, a lottery will be run for ONLY those inseparable teams, for those places.
