ABANDONED AND FORFEITED
If a referee has to abandon a game due to the
behaviour or the misconduct of a team(s) the
game will not be replayed. The team which is
deemed to have incited the misconduct or unsportsmanlike
behaviour either through violence, abuse or
intimidation will automatically lose the game
on forfeit. Otherwise the result will be a scoreless
draw. If a game is abandoned due to these reasons
teams will be required to show cause as to why
they should be allowed to continue in the competition.
Games abandoned due to
other factors may be replayed only if they have a
bearing on the teams final outcome in the table.
Teams unable to play
their game at the scheduled time should give
as much notice as possible to the administrator.
If it is not possible to mutually reschedule
the game at a different timeslot with the other
team, the game will be forfeited. Games cannot
be moved to other nights or carried over as
the field is booked in advance. This is also
due to the time constraints of the competition
and the burden of teams playing two games in
a night. The penalty for forfeiting is a 3-0
