Association administrators will now be able to create incidents against a particular match. This will allow them to capture any 'Behavioural' incidents, i.e Striking, Verbal abuse, that a player commits during a match. Administrators will also be able to add an outcome to an incident based on tribunal decision on what disciplinary action the player should face . 

When logging an incident, administrators will be required to enter the following information

  • Team 

  • Player 

  • Offence Type (this will be a list of Offences provided by the sporting body)

  • Note (Description of the incident)

Administrators will also have the option of entering contact information of the person who reported the incident (i.e Coach, Team Manager, Spectator)

When adding an outcome to an Incident, administrators will have the following options 

  • Not Guilty (No further action required) 

  • Guilty (with the following actions) 

    • Warning / Caution (Note about the player's behaviour)

    • Fine (Player is found guilty of an offence an is required to pay a fine)

    • Suspension (Player is found guilty of an offence and is suspended from participation for a set period of time)

If a player is suspended they will not be able to be selected in a lineup for match, this suspension is tenant-wide 

Once an outcome has been added, the administrator can choose to leave the incident open or close it off.

Key points to note:

  • Only Association administrators will be able to create an incident within a match 

  • Once an incident has been created this information will be available on the players profile in the admin portal , including the incident details and the outcome decision 

  • If there are multiple players involved in an incident, each player will require their own incident as the platform will only allow one player to be recorded per incident. This will enable different outcomes to be recorded against each incident, if applicable, including different levels of disciplinary action
