As in previous years, Neymar Jr's Five will follow the unique format devised by the Paris Saint-Germain star himself. Conceding a goal causes your team to lose a player, with games lasting just 10 minutes – or until your team loses all its players. Players must be between 16-25 to participate, although two players out of the maximum seven per squad can be over 25.
What's new this year are the female only teams competing in the tournament as well. All-male and all-female games will be held at each qualifier with the National Final in Dublin. The two winning teams get sent to Brazil to play for the island of Ireland in the World Finals and meet Neymar Jr in person.
So here we go boys and girls, it’s time to show your skills.
