Saturday, December 30, 2023 we will be hosting our 12th Winter Tournament for Men & Women.
The game rules (5-on-5) are the same as past Winter Tournaments. Roster cap is 10 players for Men. No cap for Women’s teams. Fee is $40 per player, or a minimum team fee of $400.
Registration opens on 11/19/23 at midnight. Please submit an Excel spreadsheet of your team roster (full names, t-shirt size, cell phone, email, church affiliation). Registration is considered complete only when both the roster and full payment have been received. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your roster. Payment can be made via Zelle (email@example.com) or Venmo (@themfl)
Registration closes on 11/26/23 at midnight. Spots fill up quickly so make sure you provide ALL of the information and payment on time, otherwise your spot will go to a team on the waitlist if we have an overabundance of teams (we have had this issue in the past).
Also, in an effort to help smaller churches field a team, we had an update to our church team eligibility rules. Please see below for the Church Partner Rule description.
Church Partner Rule
MFL teams must be composed of players from the same physical malayalee church. In an effort to help smaller churches field a team, churches can request to partner with other churches by following this preset church partner list. Special considerations will be reviewed on a case-by-base basis by the MFL Board. All partner requests will be pending board approval.
Church Partner List:
– Chicago Syro-Malabar and Chicago Syro-Malankara churches
– Chicago Pentecostal churches
– Chicago KNA churches
– Chicago Orthodox churches
– Chicago Mar Thoma churches
– Chicago CSI churches
– Detroit Mar Thoma churches
