A game is considered “official” after one completed half of play. If there is an unforeseen circumstance such as a power outage etc. the current score will stand as official once a half has been played.
Coach/team managers must notify the league officials of Real Mundial FC of their intent to forfeit. Real Mundial FC will then notify the other team. If a team shows up to play and the opposing team does not show up, then the team present will win by forfeit. The team that does not show up will still be responsible to pay referee fees if prior notice is not given. In the case of a forfeited game, players from the teams are normally allowed to use the field, to practice, scrimmage, etc. However, Real Mundial FC reserves the right to use the field, at that time, for other activities at the discretion of management.
Forfeiture will be incurred if a team fails to field the minimum number of players (4 player minimum) within five (5) minutes from the start of the game clock.
Game clock will not stop once it has started, and will not be reset if a team shows up late. Any team no-show will result in a 2-0 victory for opposing team. The game will not be rescheduled.
After the first forfeit, the team that forfeited will receive a warning. If a team forfeits three times in one session, the team will be pulled from the league and registration money will be lost.
Individuals are expected to play within the rules of the game and to the best of their ability to avoid causing injury to themselves and other persons using the facility.
