What are the rules for the League?
Half lengths must be set to 6 minutes
Game speed must be set to Normal
Games must use a White ball
All games are played as unranked.
Home player in the fixture sends the invite.
Winner posts match reports, or the home player in the event of a draw.
Winner should use his player HUB, and click the Enter Result link to input his score.
Do not quit the game before the menu appears. Some people like to get the end of match stats for their reports and players stats. They may also want to save a goal at the end. Be a good sport and wait for the menu to quit.
In the event of lag, you must quit the game before the 15 minute mark and explain to your opponent that you’ve got lag. If you play past that point, you are assumed happy with the connection.
If you get disconnected from your opponent, make a note of the time and start a new game, playing out however many minutes were left before the disconnect. Add the scores over both games.
Fixtures are posted every Sunday in your Player HUB, and you have a week to play your two weekly League, League Cup and Champions League games.
Games must be set to online squads to prevent any editing.
All players must use Tactical Defending. Legacy defending is not allowed due to the massive advantage given.
There are 4 promotion and 4 relegation spots this season. In Division Two, the top 3 go up automatically, while 4th-7th go into a play-off. There is no promotion/relegation between Divisions Two and Three this season.
How many games do we play a week?
We play two games a week, plus a League Cup game as long as you’re involved. There is also one Champions League game a week depending on if you’ve qualified in the previous season. So you could be playing up to five games a week.
How do I know who and when to play?
The fixtures for the League and Champions League will be in your Player HUB every Sunday morning. Fixtures for the League Cup are in the League Cup link in the navigation across the whole site.
When do we play our games?
Games must be played between Sunday to Sunday.
What if I don't play my games?
You are ok not to play all your games in any week but if you fall more than four games behind at any time during the season without an excuse, you will be given a yellow card. If by the end of the week you've not got your games down four games behind, you will be removed from the League for good.
How many times do we play each other a season?
We play each other once a season for the time being.
How do I arrange my games?
After finding out who you’re playing for the week, make a post for your opponent in the Match Arrangement thread in the relevant Forum, asking when is an appropriate time. You can also use Private Messaging too, and as a last resort, use the Shoutbox. You’ll get used to who is easier to play, and who you need to arrange specific times for. Please don’t use the Shoutbox as the main means for arranging games as the person you’re talking to isn’t always looking at the Shoutbox, or even on the site.
What if my opponent doesn’t show up at the arranged time?
You will need to inform your League Admin. Use the link to contact him in your Player HUB.
Remember though, that life gets in the way sometimes, so don't contact your League Admin if you can't play every game. Let him know if you have particular trouble arranging a certain game, and he'll try and sort you out.
Any games not played by the end of the last week of the season will get pooled as 1-0 wins in favour of who has made the most effort in the Match Arrangement Forum.
Where do I put my results after a game?
Go to your Player HUB on the front page of the site, and click the Enter Results/View Fixtures link. You will see all your unplayed games there. Fill in the form and click save. Your scores will update automatically in the table.
To submit any kind of Knockout Tournament result, including League Cup and Champions League, click the Submit Cup Result link in your Player HUB
