    If requesting NO Friday games, simply add $10 to entry fee. If you can play Friday, simply use the coupon code below to get this fee removed from tourney machine.

    Promo Code:

    We are adding this innovation to allow teams to truly control their Friday schedule. Furthermore, the request to not play Friday used to be uncommon (~20% of teams) but now we estimate that ~80% of teams make the request. It is understandable but the nominal fee truly shows who needs NF. The unexpected downside of NF requests is that teams who can play Friday (local teams) tend to play each other over and over as they are placed in the same pool repeatedly. Plus, some field rentals include Friday, regardless of usage.
