GCF Soccer stands for “Greater California Football Competition.” This is an annual summer event that draws a huge crowd to the state capitol in Sacramento. It’s been going on for over 20 years and features teams from all over the Golden State. G CF has a long standing history as the world’s largest soccer tournament. It is also a great place to meet fellow fans and participate in social events with other like minded people. This article will give you an idea of what is involved in this year’s G CF.
The basic game is played on a field that is rectangular and the playing surface is asphalt. Each team has five players on each side of this marked playing surface. One player on each team can participate in the game by utilizing a ball either by using a normal ball or by using a goal post.

When teams play each other in a G CF soccer match they must form a rectangle or “box” in the middle of the field. Each team begins the game by lining up behind their own goal. The opposing teams may change formation before the ball is kicked but once the ball is launched, the entire field is then covered. After the ball is kicked, the opposing teams play under a tag, or ” blockade,” which is a line of four or more players surrounding the attacking team.
After the ball is launched, the “blockade” players must form a circle of defense around the entire field in order to prevent the soccer ball from being scored. When the opposing team breaks the “blockade” they are penalized and an indirect free kick is awarded to their opponent. G CF soccer is played in two halves with each half being played on offense and defense. The first half only consists of ten minutes and the second half only consists of fifteen minutes.
The two opposite fouls that are given to a team during a GCF soccer match are being sentoff and being sent off. A team that is sent off will forfeit their next GCF soccer ball. If a team is not able to field a GCF soccer ball within three minutes of the sending off of their last ball, they are to be considered to be “out.” As a result of being out of the game, the team is declared to be out of action and they are not allowed to take part in another soccer game until a week after the season has concluded. When a team is declared out of action during the soccer season, they lose their G CF status and are no longer allowed to play in the leagues.
If a team is unable to field a soccer ball for one or more minutes because of an offensive foul or a foul of an opponent then they are to be considered to be “out.” The offending player or team may then be subject to a penalty kick. The penalty kick is a major offense and will lead to the player receiving a red card and possibly a suspension from their sport or professional league.

If a team cannot field a soccer ball for thirty seconds or more than ten minutes after a foul or an offensive foul against them then they are to be considered “out” and may end up being sent off. There is also a time limit on how long a team has been out. If the team is out of time and not eligible for another opportunity to field a soccer ball during the allotted time then they will have to be out of the game and will not be able to request a penalty kick or a G CF. The maximum amount of time that a team is out of the game is five minutes and fifteen seconds.
Once a team is deemed “out” they are not allowed to change their soccer equipment such as shin pads or cleats for the rest of the game. Players are to remain dressed according to their own specifications. Soccer clothing is very detailed, and includes socks, shorts, pants, jackets, head gear, gloves, and even shoes. Football gloves are designed to absorb and deflect any hard and sharp object that would be aimed at the player’s hands and/or forearms during a game. Soccer is played on a hard surface, which makes it especially important to have the proper protective gear. Having the right G CF gear on your soccer team can make a world of difference!
