Unlike토스카지노 existing youth competitions centered on professional players, the i-League is a league in which anyone from preschoolers to elementary, middle and high school students can participate as club players, and has contributed to fostering youth with healthy bodies and minds who enjoy soccer.

Games are divided by age and region, and are played mainly on weekends according to the regional league schedule. Depending on the age of the game, 4-man, 6-man, 8-man, and 11-man games are operated in various ways. Kindergarten and elementary school games are operated with a 1-judge system with one referee, and middle school and high school games are operated with a 2-judge system. The game time is also slightly different, from 10 to 25 minutes in each half. In accordance with the purpose of the competition, a separate tournament to determine the winning team will not be held.
