Tournament Information

Asia's Largest Youth Tournament

The JSSL Singapore Professional Academy 7s is Asia’s Premier Youth Football competition which showcases the young talent of over 450 teams across 17 countries. Teams from all around the world come together over in September to compete in our 7-a-side tournament right here in sunny Singapore.


All clubs are welcome to participate in the JSSL Singapore Professional Academy 7’s. With the growth of the JSSL 7’s to 450 teams in 2019, our goal is to give as many clubs and teams the opportunity to take part and compete in Asia’s No 1 youth tournament. Teams will be accepted based on previous performance(s) at the JSSL 7s and on merit. The tournament begins with a group play, where teams are divided into groups of seven or eight teams. All teams will play each team in the group once. Following that, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th placed teams of the group will qualify for “Cup Knock Out”, while the remaining teams in the group will qualify to the “Plate Knock Out” stages. The tournament is played under all applicable FIFA rules. All players must be insured, both for games and leisure time. Arrival for all teams is Wednesday 31st August or Thursday 1st September. The Coaching Convention is on Thursday 1st September 2022. Kick-off for the group round games is on Friday 2nd September. Group games will continue on Saturday 3rd September. Sunday 4th September will be for all knock-out games, with all finals being played at OUR TAMPINES HUB, the main venue.

JSSL Singapore 7’s Paul Parker Trophy

The Paul Parker Trophy is awarded the top club at the tournament, which accumulates points from its top 4 placed team positions. Points are awarded as follows:

Cup Competition – Winner: 12 points / Runner Up: 10 points / Joint 3rd: 8 points

Plate Competition – Winner: 4 points / Runner Up: 3 points / Joint 3rd: 2 points


All fixtures and results will be updated immediately after the end of the game. Positions in the table will be updated according to all other results too. The automated system will also allow teams to know their knock-out game schedules and timings immediately after the group stage fixtures are done.


In the event where a knock-out game ends in a tie, a simplified 3v3 format will take place in extra time. It takes place with the golden goal rule – whereby the team that scores first in the extra time period wins the game. After the first minute of the extra time and when possession has left the field of play, 1 player will be removed from both teams decided by their respective coaches. After the 2nd minute has passed and when possession leaves the field of play, another player is again removed from both teams. In a 1v1 situation, in the event of throw-ins and all free kicks – the player in possession is allowed to dribble the ball into play. Play will continue in the 1v1 until a goal is scored.
