The Tournoi Indoor de Paris-Bercy was a mid-season indoor football invitational competition hosted by French club Paris Saint-Germain at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France. The tournament was founded in 1984 and was held annually until 1991. Played indoors (synthetic field and seven-a-side), the competition featured host club PSG and five more teams.
1983 European champions Hamburger won the inaugural 1984 edition, which also featured hosts Paris SG, French clubs Monaco and Bordeaux, Brazilian team Fluminense and Algerian side Tizi Ouzou (currently named JS Kabylie). Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv, for its part, won the tournament's last edition in 1991.
Paris Saint-Germain is the most successful club in the competition's history, despite failing to win it until the 4th edition. The Parisians lifted the trophy on two occasions (1987 and 1990), thus becoming the only club to have won the tournament more than once. Besides Hamburger and Dynamo Kyiv, German side Köln, Belgian outfit Anderlecht, Brazilian team Santos and Dutch club Ajax also won the competition once.
The tournament was played at the AccorHotels Arena synthetic indoor sports arena during two evenings. It consisted of two phases. In the first phase, competing teams were divided into two groups of three teams (Group A and Group B). In the second phase, the winners of each group and the best third-ranked side progressed to the winners group (Group places 1-3), while the remaining three teams went to the ranking group (Group places 4-6). Two points for a win, one point for a draw.
A match consisted of two halves of 14 minutes each. There was a 2-minute half-time break between halves. Each team consisted of a maximum of seven players (excluding substitutes), one of whom had to be the goalkeeper. The number of substitutions permitted were unlimited. A game was officiated by a referee. The referee was assisted by one assistant referee. A yellow card led to a temporary exclusion of 2 minutes, while a red card required the player to leave the field of play immediately, forcing the team to play a man fewer. It also resulted in the suspension of the offending player for the next match.
The offside rule did not apply. A shot on goal could only be made from the opposing side. Indoor football courts are delimited by walls instead of lines, and there are no player throw-ins. Therefore, players were allowed to play with the walls. If the ball flew over the walls or contacted the ceiling, play was stopped and the team opposing the one that most recently touched the ball was awarded a free kick at the location where the ball left the arena or made contact with the ceiling. In case of a foul in the penalty area, the shot is taken from the penalty mark, which is 9 meters from the goal line. Goals are also smaller than in standard football and the penalty area is also smaller. The field is commonly 61m by 26m.
