If you are 13, then congratulations.
There are no passports asked for, so the entry process is relaxed, therefore, there is no way of telling really.
However, the mental and emotional differences between you and my daughter (who is 13) and my 2 boys (both 11) in terms of decision making, concentration, and ability to manage pressure is massive.
The boys are finsihing primary school, but our girl is going into her 3rd year at high school. It does not seem fair to put kids as young as 7 and 8 against 13 year olds and it does not seem fair that people from southern England can come to scotland to graduate from a scottish venue to the national tournament.
My lad Jack feels like there is no point collecting next season at the moment and I feel that we are spending too much money on something that has consistently been disappointing for the last 2 years.

Jack was the best Scottish player at the tournament yesterday, easilly. He picked a great team and beat everyone except you and the other finalist (also English).
This is not right and we are writing a stern letter to Topps and the EPL about the situation.
Quiz was a joke in as well. Some of the questions were ridiculous.

What should have been a great day for EVERYONE, was basically just a money making promo event for topps that we tagged along for!

This post absolutely SCREAMS sour grapes to me. Obviously I wasn't there so I can't know for certain one way or the other but quite frankly you have no way of proving he is over 13 just as he may have had no way of proving he was under 13 on the day. Demanding ID to enter a kid's trading card game is a little extreme, don't you think?

If you think your 11 year old has a disadvantage because 13 year olds are more mature, why don't you petition Topps to reduce the maximum age to 11? (Then, of course, you'll have parents of 9 year olds having the same problem!). Deciding not to collect just because you lost in the final does suggest to me that it's more about being a bad loser than anything.

Jack may well have been the best Scottish player there, but as far as I can see it was not the Scottish national championships, it was the regional heat and anyone that makes the effort to turn up should be allowed to enter (if you made the effort to go to, say, Manchester, and had not been allowed to enter Jack into it because he wasn't from Manchester I'm sure you'd be just as annoyed!). I'm sure the Premier League themselves will laugh off a letter that a trading card event allowed English people to enter.

What did you expect an event put on by a profit-making company to be anything OTHER than a "money making promo event"? They're not a charity, they're a company!
