PAYMENT  

3.1 The Team Captain is responsible for ensuring that the team fulfils the full seasons fixtures, payment of match fees and any  outstanding monies at the end of the season. Any outstanding debt will be recovered by a Debt Collection Agency. The Collection Agencies fees will be added to any debt that is passed to them to recover.

3.3 The entry fee must be paid on the first night of the league.

3.4 We accept cash, cheques and online banking payments. Cheques made payable to Soccer Gods ltd & our account details are available on request for anyone who wants to pay using online banking.

4. TEAMS SHOWING UP LATE  
In all the following situations, the official and both teams must be aware of the starting score and relevant match fees before the game starts.

4.1 If a team are late but show up before half time = both teams must still pay in full and the late team must start   a goal down for every 5 minutes they are late. Playing time is reduced by the length of the time the kick off was delayed.

4.2 If a team is late but show up at half time, the late team will have to pay 1½ x match fee and start 3 – 0 down. The team that was  on time only pays ½ match fee.

4.3 If a team is late, but show up after half time, the late team has to pay for the full match fees for both teams and will receive a  5 – 0 defeat for the match.

4.4 If a team does not show up a friendly game will be organised. The team that turned up and plays in the friendly have to pay half  price.

5. REARRANGED FIXTURES 
It is very difficult to change fixtures once the handbook has been done and we will need a minimum of 30 days notice  in writing for us to consider any changes. Soccer Gods will rearrange any games cancelled due to weather,  floodlight failure or anything beyond our control and these games will usually be played at the end of the season.

6. WITHDRAWING FROM THE LEAGUE 
Once the fixtures have been produced, as Team Captain you are responsible to fulfil all your fixtures for the season. You can only withdraw your team when a replacement team has been found. If your team drops out without being replaced the Team Captain is liable for all match fees (your plus your opponents fee) for any fixtures you do not fulfil.

7. CHANGE OF TEAM CAPTAIN  
The Team Captain can be changed at any point during the season by the new Team Captain submitting a new application form. Once Soccer Gods receive the new Team Captains application he is then responsible from that point on. Any outstanding monies owed prior to this are the responsibility of the old Team Captain.

8. COMPLAINTS  
Must be received by Soccer Gods in writing within 7 days of any incident. This can be done by post, email or fax. We will thoroughly investigate any complaint we receive and reply with the outcome.

9. PERSONAL ACCIDENT AND INSURANCE 
Soccer Gods is not responsible for personal accidents. Players are not insured for injuries they may incur playing in the league. Teams or individuals are advised to provide their own insurance to cover personal injury.  It is the team Captains responsibility to inform his players of this before they play. If you require more information about this please contact your local county F.A. or a sports insurance company.

10. BEHAVIOUR 
If a member of your team behaves in any way that may put our booking in jeopardy or could cause our booking to be cancelled by the venue eg, smoking, swearing, urinating etc. then we have the right to kick your team out of the league and you will be responsible for all match fees (your fee + your oppositions fee) until we find a team to take your place.

11. APPLICATION FORMS
Your application form can be used for any new season as long as your contact details have not changed. If you do not  want to enter a new season you must inform Soccer Gods of this in writing at least 7 days before the start date of the new season. Any applications received online and by email are legally binding.

12. REPLACEMENT TEAMS
