1. Bad behaviour by players and spectators
will not be tolerated. Make your team
& spectators aware of this.
Don’t invite spectators if you suspect
they will misbehave. Substitute your players
if they are frustrated. Remind your team
and spectators that their actions will
now affect everyone by way of points being
deducted. As always the Referees decision
on Laws of the Game is final.

for Futsal with a few extra rules and
policies mentioned here.

spirit and camaraderie of a fun game in
a structured league.

6.Unsportsmanlike Conduct will result
in a foul, a yellow or red card, and possibly
Definition of Unsportsmanlike Conduct:
To be unsportsmanlike is to act in a manner
unbecoming of a fair, ethical, honorable
individual. It consists of acts of disrespect
such as making debasing or critical remarks
about or to an official or an opponent,
or vulgarity such as the use of profanity
whether or not directed at someone.
Player appeals to the referee
Referees are not required to defend their
officiating to players/spectators. Players
that continue to argue with the referee
will receive a yellow or red card.
DO NOT swear or question the referee's
knowledge of the rules of the game. This
includes comments such as "you must
be joking"or "learn the rules".
You will certainly receive a card. Before
you appeal and risk a few weeks off suspended
consider that you aren't in the same vantage
point as the referee. Your focus is usually
the few square metres in front of your
feet. The referee is the one who has a
clear view AND knows the correct rules.
We ask that you wait until half time
or the END of the game to ask any questions
to the referee and even then only during
the short duration between game times.
Other teams don't want to be held up.
You may disagree
with a Referee’s call, do not make your
personal, angry or derogatory.
Deduction of Competition points.
Teams will lose competition points for
the following in addition to player penalties.
1. 12 points, (or forfeit of finals) spectators
fighting or joining in any on field scuffles.
This may result in a team being ejected from the competition.
2. 4 points and ban from venue, (or forfeit of finals) player
refusing or intentionally taking too long
to leave after being given a Red card.
3. 3 points, Players intentionally being
violent to the opposition for any offences
not covered by the Red Cards Penalty list.
4. 2 points, (or forfeit of finals) spectators/players
bringing in alcohol or refusing to leave
5. 2 points, (or forfeit of finals) spectator’s
derogatory remarks or inciting the opposition
in any way including chanting or gestures.
Two individual red cards in a competition will
result in a suspension for the remainder
of the season. The only exception is red
cards given for hand balls. This includes
6 yellows in a season.
Teams with 5 red cards in a season will
need to suspend one red carded player
(not already suspended) from the teamlist
for the remainder of the season. This
will continue for each new red card.
Players receiving a red card and not leaving
the premises or continuing to be a nuisance
will have 4 points deducted from their
teams competition points and will be banned.
This is being done because Red carded
players often feel they are free from
any further penalty if they want to disrupt
the remainder of the game or abuse and
intimidate other players and the referee.
If you feel you need to do this you place
your team's place in the competition in
jeopardy. When you are given a red card
you must take your belongings and leave
the premises immediately. If you intentionally take
too long, points will be deducted and the player banned from our competitions and venue. The administrator on the night will use their discretion with these matters.
Just to clarify so there is no confusion
if a red carded player sits back down
at the bench, changes at all or stands
around on the sidelines - 4 points will
be deducted from their team and a season ban from the competition and venue for the player.
