~~~~ Location ~~~~

As with every Swedish tournament, we like to show you our most beautiful pearls. This tournament site is located in Hissjö, right outside of Umeå.

A small community sports center located by a lake with forests surrounding it. The pitch is made out of artificial turf. At the site there is a sauna, outdoor shower, barbecue, dancefloor, stage and space for playing volleyball. Tents make up the lodging and it is up to everyone participating to make sure that they have a big enough space in a tent for sleeping.

Fishing in the lake requires a licence that you can buy here: https://www.fiskekort.se/fiskevardsomrade/hissjo/

~~~~ Tournament Fee ~~~~

The fee for the tournament will be announced in the upcoming newsletter along with the payment information. So pay attention to them! Note that if your fee is not paid on the last pay date, your spot will go to the team next in line on the waiting list.

~~~~ Accommodation ~~~~

During the tournament days (8-11th) you will be able to camp at the tournament grounds. There will be a designated spot for tents and other camping-gear. Make sure to follow the rules and regulations that we put up, so we may come back to the same spot next year.

For the international long haul juggers looking for housing before the tournament please get in contact with our local club and we'll try and get you a place to stay. You can use the contact form at https://www.umeaosport.se/. Please state where you’re from, how long you plan to stay and where we can get in touch with you.

~~~~ Food and water ~~~~

As a must on every tournament, there will be a BBQ on both days of the tournament.

There are numerous shops and shopping centers within a 15 min driving distance and a shop 10 min walking distance of the tournament grounds. Make sure that you have plenty of food and water, one extra bottle is preferable since it will be in the middle of our summer, and you will all need the energy. Empty bottles work just fine as well since tap water is drinkable.

~~~~ Rules ~~~~

The tournament will be played according to the Swedish jugger rules put in effect by Sjufo (The Swedish Jugger Association).

You can find the rules here:
English ~ Link is coming soon!

Swedish ~ https://jugger.se/wp-content/uploads/simple-file-list/Jugger__Svenska_regelverket-version_2_0.pdf

Note that it’s every player's responsibility to read and understand the rules before play.

~~~~ Judge/referee ~~~~

The tournament matches are judged by representatives from teams that are not active in play. Therefore we expect every team to contribute with at least two-three possible judges. These judges are expected to be well versed in the rules and also speak English fluently as this is an international tournament.

~~~~ Pompfens ~~~~

The pompfencheck will be held on Friday evening at the tournament grounds. Note that every player is responsible for their own gear and that it is according to the Swedish ruleset. Make sure that your pompfens are in good condition and according to our rules before traveling, so you don't need to repair or rebuild anything major on the night before the tournament. If you have any questions about our rules or standard pomfpencheck procedures in Sweden, you can contact the Swedish Jugger Association at info@jugger.se.

As we will probably have teams coming in with airplanes, every extra pompfen is welcome. So if you have extra pomfens that you are willing to share with others and the possibility to bring them please do.
