The PFL and GPFL regular seasons will begin on Saturday, 30 September at venues across the Island.

This Saturday, the girls take centre stage as Prospect Primary defend their 2016 GPFL Opening Rally title. Last September, the young ladies from Prospect defeated St Ignatius Prep 1-0 in the final of the inaugural GPFL Opening Rally. Cayman Prep claimed third place after defeating Sir John A. Cumber Primary ‘B’ 1-0.

The Rally is a fast-paced one-day tournament with games being a short 10 minutes per half with no offsides. Games must end with a winner. If games are tied at the end of the 20 minutes, penalties will decide the victor.

The first round of play is round robin with each school playing the other schools once. The second round is the knockout stage where the school finishing first plays the school finishing fourth and the school finishing second plays the school finishing third in the semifinals. The winners of the semifinals play in the final and the losers from the semifinals play for third place.
