Release Notes - 13 September 2021

We are excited to announce the below features will be released in Play HQ UAT environment on Friday 3rd September and production on Monday 13th September.



Game Permits


The game permits feature allows a player that has not registered to a club in a competition season to play a single game for that club in the competition season.

A player that participates in a game on a game permit is not visible in the season participant list for the organisation they participate for, nor are they added as a permanent team member for the team they participated for. They simply participate in the game and have no further involvement in the organisation they participated for.

The following have been implemented this release:

  • Game-permitted players will be flagged on electronic scoring.

  • The ability to check whether a player is eligible for a game permit
