d)      In a specific round (and when applicable) you have to play both legs with the team that you picked for the 1stleg

Where applicable, should scores be tied after two legs, classic extra-time will be played, followed by penalties.

No controlling of the keeper by means of the ‘Select’ button.

No passing at the back. If you suspect your opponent of breaking this rule, pause the game and alert one of the admins. Should you wait until after the game, the result will stay as is, as there is nothing for the admins to rule on.

No cursing, shouting, bumping or distracting your opponent.

Pause the game only if you have the ball and have given your opponent a heads up if you are going to pause. Both players must agree they are ready to resume the match.

The ball must be passed back once before you can cross in to the opponents half, you cannot run in to his half straight from kick off.

If you set up your controller, please save it on temporary assigned slot.

It is up to you as player to check your controls before the game starts, the admins and organisers will not be held liable for controllers that are not set up.

Should a console freeze alert one of the admins. If it is still in the 1st half the game will be replayed full but the game continues from the score upon which the screen froze. If it froze in the 2nd half the game is restarted and only one half of the game is played and the score is as it was upon freezing of the console.
