*If the Plymouth Argyle first-team reach the League 1 play-offs, the event will be cancelled due to a clash with the pitch being in use.

The new format for this year will ensure that all Covid19 guidance and restrictions are adhered to by all and we will give the players the opportunity of game team on the Home Park pitch. This will take a Festival format so there will be not be competitive cup rounds – instead each team will have equal game time on the pitch.

There is a limit of 12 teams for each age group in each section. It will be a six-a-side tournament with no more than 12 players per squad; each team playing five matches (length at least 15 minutes per game*Subject to change). Mini-soccer rules will be applied during the matches. Each club will only be allowed to enter one team per age group. Our bookings team will check all club entries.

As the festival is before the 17th May, in line with government guidance and in order to maintain social distancing, the festival will have a strictly no spectators policy. Each club will be able to attend with up to 12 players and a maximum of 4 adults including managers and coaches.

There will be a fee to enter the festival of £40 per team. Entry fees are non-refundable unless Plymouth Argyle FC qualify for the League 1 Play offs which would result in the Community Cup being cancelled.

Any clubs who would like to take part in the festival are requested to complete the application process online at www.argylecommunitytrust.co.uk under the Book Courses tab. Under no circumstances we will accept bookings over the phone or in person.
