FOBISIA Football 2023 - November


Tournament Information

Invitation and Overview

Dear Directors of Sport, Heads of PE and Heads of Football,

We are delighted to invite you to the first FOBISIA Football tournament of the 2023/24 academic year. This will take place at the fantastic Alpine Resort, situated approximately 30 minutes from Chiang Mai City and 40 minutes from Chiang Mai airport. The airport is well connected with direct flights to most major hubs across the region.

The football fields at Alpine are FIFA quality and fantastic, many professional club sides from Japan, Korea, and Europe choose to use this facility for off season training. FOBISIA will have exclusive access to all the pitches.

Tournament Details

We have split the tournament into two parts this year to cater for every age group and ensure the tournament is appropriate for each age group, is child centred (for example, no 6am matches and late finishes).

The two tournaments have been split:

  • November 16th - 19th: U19, U11 and U9

  • May 23rd - 26th: U13 and U15

The tournaments will run over two days and we will look to ensure the maximum amount of playing time for every team. There will be cup, plate and bowl competitions for each age group and we will also run a ‘B/2nd team’ tournament for as many age groups as possible if space allows.

Age Group and Pitch Sizes

There will be three age groups playing at this tournament:



  • U19 - 11 a side boys, 9 a side girls

  • U11 - 7 a side

  • U9 - 7 a side



  • U13 7 a side

  • U15 7 a side


The U19 age group will play 11 a side matches on a full size
(120 x 80m) pitch


  • The U11 will play on 60 x 40m pitches

  • The U9 will play on 50 x 35m pitches


(The U13 and U15 tournament 7 a side, 60 x 40m, pitches)

Additional Information

The number of confirmed teams in each group will ultimately affect the tournament format. However, we are provisionally looking at pool matches with play offs to follow, there will be cup, plate, bowl competitions etc to ensure maximum appropriate games for all involved.


B/2nd Teams


Due to the available number of pitches and to ensure as many students can experience this tournament as possible, we will be looking to open this tournament to B / 2nd teams. Schools must be entering an A/1st team in the tournament in order to also enter a second team.


If this option is preferable, please indicate on the registration form.


Non-FOBISIA schools


The tournament is a FOBISIA tournament and priority will be given to FOBISIA schools, however if there is sufficient room then places will be available for non-FOBISIA school teams too.


If places allow there may be room for additional teams in some groups. Please indicate the preference on the registration form and we will confirm the place ASAP.


The registration process on this page will be for the November tournament, a separate webportal will be created and shared for the May tournament in October 2023.
