- The officials’ fees are to be shared equally between the two teams (except in the final).
- In case of a tie—except for the semi-final and final games—the result will be decided by penalty kicks. In the semi-finals and final, in case of a tie, two 15-minute halves of overtime will be played. If the game is still tied after overtime, the result will be decided by penalty kicks.
- The ICP and CAT systems are NOT in effect during Cup play.
- Unlimited subs at half time allowed (as in U21 league play)
- With the exception of youth players playing on permit, only players registered with U21 teams are allowed to participate in U21 cup play.
