The 41:st Felix Cup is played in Gothenburg, Sweden at Valhallabadet on address:

Pool dimensions: 16 x 10 x 4.8 m

Pool temperature: approx. 27degrees Celsius.


CMAS International rules is used with the following exceptions:

Game time ineffective time, usually 11 minutes but depends on playing schedule.

Penalty time is 1 minute ineffective time, starting when the ball is put to play again.

Penalty throws is 30s max.

You are not allowed to take "Time Out" due to the tight schedule.

You are not allowed to replace players in the 12 man squad during each game

A game starts every 12:th minute (assuming a playing time of 11 minutes, which is subject to change depending on the amount of teams signed up), so we kindly ask every team to be prepared since we have virtually no extra time.

Due to tight schedule, protests are not allowed.

Exceptions from rule 4.3.5.b penalties:

* No break before penalties

* Blue team always start the penalty throws

* No list of ranked players should be supplied by the teams, but otherwise the same rule - the same player cannot be used twice, unless all players have defended and attacked.

A player can participate in one team in each tournament (mixed and ladies) but cannot participate in two mixed or two ladies teams.

Game schedule

The game schedule is emailed to all participating teams and will also be uploaded here when done. NOTE that the first game WILL start at 7.30AM, with access to the pool at 7, so an arrival to Gothenburg on Friday the 8:th will be almost neccessary.


If you can bring a non playing referee your team will receive a 500SEK discount on the fee. Non playing referees also do not have to pay for the party. This needs to be communicated to Felix DF 20th of November the latest.
