BLUELOCK Dallas Tournament Rules
“The tournament will follow “King of the Court” rules. There will be ten 3v3 games playing simultaneously. Each game will be played for 4-minute intervals with 1-minute breaks on all fields for 90 minutes.
The winning team of each game will advance to the next field until they reach one of the two top fields. Losers will move down to the bottom fields and work their way back up.
The two teams that win at the top fields by the end of the 90 minutes will play against each other in the final match for the grand prize! The losing teams from the top fields will play for 3rd and 4th place.
Want to come just to enjoy the spectacle? That is totally fine! Great soccer deserves a great audience, and you can soak up the soccer in Crossbar’s full service bar.”

On-Location Tournament Details
“The fields will be turf, so while flats are OK, turf shoes or cleats will work best.
Water will be available, but it is advised to bring your own if you can.
If you end up on the waitlist, it is still worth showing up in case a spot opens up on the day.”
BLUELOCK official synopsis:
“Japan’s desire for World Cup glory leads the Japanese Football Association to launch a new rigorous training program to find the national team’s next striker.
Three hundred high school players are pitted against each other for the position, but only one will come out on top. Who among them will be the striker to usher in a new era of Japanese soccer?”
About BLUELOCK Anime Series
“Based on the award-winning manga of the same name, written by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and illustrated by Yusuke Nomura, and serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine with over 20 million copies in circulation.
The story follows the dreams of 300 high school students who aim to become an absolute ace striker in order to join Japan’s Men’s National Team to help win the next World Cup tournament.
However, if they are eliminated from the BLUELOCK training program they will never be able to play for the national team and their career is finished.
Only one whose ego and skill triumphs over all will emerge on top.”
