In game, the team name will still show as FC “Captain Character” . As the captain of the team becomes the name of the team in Striker Superstars, the captain will need to be setting up every match in the league. However, a captain may contact league administrator and delegate his role to another member of the team. In this case, the delegate will be able to setup the match.

5.1: 2 fixtures will be played each week of the competition(s), there is 6 or 7 day gap between matches to be precise except for the week of Christmas and New Years. The fixtures will be assigned at the start of the league. Exact match date/time is as it’s shown on the fixtures page after sign-ups.
5.2: If a fixture cannot be played, valid reasoning can allow the deadline to be extended to a maximum of 2 days.

5.6: Team captain of the winning side will need to submit the match result at the league site. (use the match report form and fill in required fields.). The captain is encouraged to take a screenshot of the final match result. In case of a disagreement over match result, this screenshot will be used as one of the evidences.
6. In-game Issues
6.1: If a player crashes it is NOT obligatory for the opposition to apply fair play, however it is strongly recommended.
6.2: Loading-screen crashes before kick off: If a team is shorthanded before the match kick off (1st half kick off), the rest of the shorthanded team may leave the match before kick off (all the players of the team should leave, if one or more continues to play, this rule won’t apply). If this happens, the other team should also leave the match and the teams should challenge each other again. If the missing (disconnected) player is not in the game lobby, teams should allow 10 minutes for the shorthanded team to build the team. After 10 minutes, the team that is ready may ask for an auto-win (3-0). If this happens more than twice for the same team (for the same match), the other team does not have to leave the match. They may choose to play on and then submit the final score.

All match dates will be open for negotiation provided that both captains mutually agree on another date/time. Should they not be able to agree on a date, the teams will have to play the game on the preset date. A match fixture can only be delayed/postponed until the preset kick-off time of the following match and up to 72 hours max. All negotiations will need to be in writing on this site.
