Electronic Matchsheets
In 2018, electronic matchsheets will be compulsory for all competitions from U10 upwards. Both teams are required to have their teamsheets marked as “complete” and to confirm the other team’s teamsheet in the system 10 mins prior to kick-off.

With electronic teamsheets, both team managers must complete their teamsheet 10 mins prior to the match so that the opposing team manager can confirm. All relevant information must be included, including any upgraded players and shirt numbers for all players. For electronic teamsheets, the team manager should confirm the opposition’s teamsheet to lock the teamsheet from further change.
