Some questions about the competition

Hi! I am Lana and I’m representing the Soccer Lightweight team from Brazil. We have some questions about the two competition:

1-Could we participate in both Technical Challenges Competition++ 6000 SUX and RoboCupJunior SoccerSim Competition?

2-Are we going to lose the chance of going to the closest presencial robocup participating in the RoboCupJunior SoccerSim Competition?

3-When is the Technical Challenges Competion++ 6000SUX?

Many thanks,

Aperture Robotics Soccer Team.

2-Are we going to lose the chance of going to the closest presencial robocup participating in the RoboCupJunior SoccerSim Competition?

I am responding only to this question. Your team is qualified to participate in the 2021 competition and it will not carry over to future competition. There will be another qualification event in Brazil next year, I belive, and teams qualified from the event will participate in the 2022 competition.

Please contact Brazilian Regional Representative for region-specific questions.



Hi @Lana,

Yes, I believe that will be possible.

It will take place throughout the competition week, just as the “standard” competition.

Hope this helps! If you happen to have some more questions, please feel free to reach out.


Oi, Lana.

The Technical Challenges Competion++ 6000SUX are for teams qualified via the national competition in Brazil (I believe this was last year).

About the SoccerSim competition: the next event will be the official Qualification Tournaments in May 2021, open for participation to any team that would like to register.

  • Qualification Registration deadline: May 17’th 2021
  • Qualification Code submission deadline: May 24’th 2021

Hi! can we have a specific code for a goalkeeper in the simulation?

Hi @Lana,

I am not sure if I understood your question correctly (please do let me know if not) but in general, yes, your goalkeeper can be powered by different code than the rest of your robots.

Note that the way robots are programmed had changed a bit from the Demo competition (we believe the change was for the better) – you can find more information about that in here:

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.


In the face-to-face rules the robot cannot fully enter this area and in the simulator rules there is nothing talking about it so I was wondering if the robot can be entirely within that area.The area is circled in red in the image below:image

The robot is allowed to enter the area, but after being there for 15 seconds, the robot is automatically moved to the furthest neutral spot. Check rule 1.8 Inside the Penalty Area of soccer sim rules

Have the registration dates changed?
It says end of APRIL until May 17th (midnight EDT?) on

Yes, you should still be able to register, but the deadline did indeed pass. If you plan on registering, please do so as soon as possible.


Sorry , I think you misunderstood my question!

Thank you .

Hello @mrssd
the code upload form will be published very soon (tonight or tomorrow).

hi there ,
Can We use some External libraries and send with our codes ?

We have a question regarding the code submission.
Until what time should the code be submitted???

Hi @mrssd,

Yes, you can find the list on the link below:

Hope this helps!

Hi @Eddie,

As the website on the Qualifications mentioned below describes, the deadline to send you code is 24th of May AoE (Anywhere on Earth).

Good luck!

Hello @mareksuppa,

Is it possible to include multiple .py files in addition to,,, and when we submit our code? This would mean that these additional files which include classes that,, and all import, would be located inside of the /robot folder when we submit the code.

Thank you!

Sincerely, Thomas
