Team Requirements

Once a match starts a player has 20 minutes from the in-game time to complain that his opponent is not abiding by one of the below rules. Should the 20-minute time pass it will automatically mean that both players are in agreement and therefore one cannot complain after.

Squad's overall rating has no limitation.

The squad can include up to a maximum of 2 ICONs/Heroes total, including your bench.

Loan Cards can be used.

Players should each have a light-coloured jersey and a dark-coloured jersey and should choose the opposite of one another to avoid confusion. If Players can’t agree, the home player should choose a dark-coloured jersey and the away player a light-coloured jersey.

Stadiums must have white lines and white goal nets. 

No Shows

All no-shows must be reported on the website with clear proof that the opponent didn't add you. The No Show grace period time is 10 minutes after the match's original start time. For example, if a match is scheduled for 22:00 PM, the no-show time for this match would be 22:10 PM. 

After posting a No Show result your opponent has 5 minutes to dispute the result after that the result will be automatically accepted.

Should a player have any hardware or software problem, the match admin has the right to call a no-show once the 10-minute grace period is over.
