Each team will play 10 matches against 8 different teams. There will be 150 matches in total and 3000 minutes overall, equal to 50 hours of play in just three days, with the presence of 450 players – 100 coaches and team managers – together with 3000 parents and/or relatives coming from all over Italy and from abroad too.
