Scottish Touch Series 2010

After a thrilling climax to the Scottish Touch Series in it's inaugural year, we're delighted to confirm the schedule of events forming the 2010 series.

The STS provides clubs and teams participating in Scotland's finest one day events an additional opportunity for top level competition and the honour of being recognised as the STS Champions.

In 2010, the tournaments making up the series are:

  • Stirling Open - 5th June
  • Glasgow Open - 19th June
  • Aberdeen Summer Tournament - 3rd July
  • Edinburgh Open - 11th September

This year the STS is supported by Steeden, who will provide match balls at each event.

Will a new team emerge to claim the title from the holders, Meerkats? Will the hard work in developing new players at the structured clubs pay dividends this year? Join us in Stirling on 5th of June to celebrate the beginning of what's sure to be a closely fought and most enjoyable Summer of Touch.

How the STS works

All teams entering any of the STS events will be included in the STS points scoring and league. There will be no restrictions on player registration for participation in STS, as team and player registration will be managed by event organisers at each tournament.

As well as there being an event winner at each tournament, each team will be awarded STS points based on their final placing at each event. These points are tallied in a league table which will result in an overall STS winner. This rewards teams for attending as many events as possible and consistency of performance. Points awarded will be consistent across all series events. This ensures no single event is deemed more rewarding to enter and no advantage given to a host region. The STS Champions will be the team finishing top of league after the scores from the fourth event have been applied.

STS Champions will be presented with a trophy, provided by STA. This trophy is passed to the winners in succeeding years with winners names engraved.

There may also be opportunity for the champions to represent Scotland in future European Club Championships.
