All substitutes, managers and supporters must watch from the designated area.
Timing and schedule
Games will consist of 2 fifteen minute halves with a five minute half time.
A 3-0 forfeit will be recorded if a team is more than 5 minutes late.
Teams may be required to play two games on certain matchdays.
Teams will play each other twice. 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and 0 points for a loss.
The league will be decided on points, then goal difference, then goals scored and then head to head results.
Starting and restarting the game
The two captains will flip a coin to decide who takes centre first.
Centre shall be taken after a goal.
You can shoot from centre.
Goalkeepers must roll the ball to outfield players.
Goalkeepers can pick up back passes. However the goalkeeper cannot receive the ball from a player he has just passed to. An indirect free-kick will be awarded if this occurs.
There will be no referee. Therefore, the captains are responsible for their own player’s behaviour. However, if the on looking CitySport member of staff deems it appropriate they can step in to issue a yellow or red card.
Captains must make themselves known to the staff member keeping score at the start of play. Consistent ill-discipline may result in expulsion from the league.
Games to be played using an indoor, size 4 football (provided by CitySport).
The ball can be played off the walls. If the ball strikes the wall behind the goal line the game will restart with the goalkeeper.
NO Slide tackling. Slide tackles will be penalised with an indirect free kick.
The on looking CitySport staff members’ decision is final.
What to do you have to bring
- Clean, non-marking indoor trainers.
- Appropriate playing kit.
