Minimum & Maximum Players
When registering for a tournament, players must select the minimum number of players required to compete in that tournament, indicated on the tournament sign up module. Players will not be able to select more than the maximum number of players indicated on the tournament sign up module.
For this tournament, players must register their Playstation Network ID to their EGL Game & Social Accounts section on their EGL profile. All Player IDs on a players roster must be 100% valid and accurate. Spelling, spaces and characters must be exact, but do not need to be case sensitive.
If your username is found to be incorrect or you have input an email address instead of your Playstation Network ID then you will be disqualified as this is strictly NOT allowed.
Players are not permitted to use a substitute at any point in a match. A substitute is defined as someone who is not listed on the Match Fixture page (this has nothing to do with substitutes within the game: FIFA 21).
Player IDs are stored when you enter a tournament, meaning that any changes made to a player's ID after they sign up for a tournament will not be updated on the roster. To avoid this change your username before signing up for a tournament or leave the tournament, change your game ID so that it is correct and then re-join the tournament.
Only players listed on the Match Fixture page are eligible to play in tournament matches. It is both players responsibility to verify the eligibility of all players playing in the match. If a player uses an ineligible player in a match they will forfeit the match the ineligible player participated in. Proof must be shown to support any claims of an ineligible player playing in a match.
If the opposing player is not the player listed on the roster, you must tell the opposing player to play on the account specified on the roster. You must have given the player the required fifteen (15) minutes from match start time to resolve this. If the player does not resolve this issue, please report the scores in your favour and provide proof of the ineligible player in the game lobby.
All matches are to be played using the following settings which are the Default Settings for Classic Match:
|Game Mode||Friendly Seasons|
|Half Length||6 Minutes|
Current Squads are the only teams which may be used, All-Star, Icon and Legend squads are not permitted. International (Nation) squads may be used.

Loan Players/Attribute Cards
Loan players, even as substitute, and attribute cards (Player training, etc.) are NOT allowed to be used. Proof must be given of this when accusing an opponent of not following the rules, no proof will result in suspension and disqualification.
Best of 1
All matches are Best of 1 and are decided after one game.
In the event of server issues arising, tournaments may be postponed or cancelled depending on the severity of the issue.
Matches must be played in their entirety. Maximum permitted time to delay a match is fifteen (15) minutes.
Failure to complete a match or report the scores within 35 minutes of receiving the match fixtures will result in disqualification for both players due to inactivity.
Players may not delay the match for more than fifteen (15) minutes between each round. If a player delays the start for longer than fifteen (15) minutes, the other player should report the scores in their favour and provide proof of the delay occurring.
The player that did not delay must provide video proof showing that this fifteen (15) minute delay did occur.
Players are allowed to pause for tactical, substitution or game related reasons. Pauses should only be for valid reasons and players may be punished for abusing this feature.
If a player disconnects from the match, then the match is to be remade and the match scores and time of disconnection must be replicated, the match must resume as normal once the time of disconnection has been reached in the remade game.
If both players disagree on the scores or when the time of disconnection took place and then video or photographic evidence must be submitted by the player that disconnected.
In order for a player to forfeit, the opposing player must leave or end the match immediately after they have captured proof of their accusation. Players will not be forfeited if the opposing player does not leave the game and the match is completed.
Players will forfeit a map for the following reasons:
- Abusing the pause feature.
- Leaving or ending a match prior to it's completion and then failing to provide valid proof of the accusation against the opposing player.
- Hosting a match with the incorrect Match Settings shown above.
- Delaying a match by more than fifteen (15) minutes since receiving the match fixtures for that round.
The higher seeded player will be the host (home team). A players seed is indicated by the number next to their name on the tournament bracket. The highest seed is defined as the player with the seed closest to 0. The lower seeded player will select the right side (away team) of the lobby.
Both players are responsible for reporting the result of a match. This can be done by clicking on the match fixture link found on the Match Fixture page.
Tournament brackets will be updated automatically once both players have reported the match.
In the instance that only one player reports the match result, the result will automatically be confirmed after ten (10) minutes. Please do not contact support in this time as you will cancel the timer.
In the instance that both players report conflicting results, the match will be placed into dispute and will be handled by a member of staff.
In the event of a dispute, the player that has disputed will be asked to provide proof of their accusation. Please see the Evidence Policy section below to find out what evidence is required.
If the disputing player is unable to provide valid evidence for the reason that they disputed, then they will be removed from the tournament and will also receive a suspension due to disputing without valid reason/proof.
A player has fifteen (15) minutes to show up and be ready to start the match. Failure to do so will result in a forfeit.
To report a no-show, please click on the 'Opponent No Show' button on the Match Fixture page.
No Show Proof
If you have reported a no-show and the opposing player has disputed, you must provide video evidence that you have invited them to play prior to the fifteen (15) minute no-show deadline. Failure to do will result in the no-show claim being voided and both teams being made to play the round.
