A team is considered registered if the following points are met: - Registration within the registration period - Transfer of the authorization fee in due time - Recognition of all points in these regulations
The teams can also be mixed (men and women). There is no limit to the number of active players on the team. Active footballers are players in the 1st to 5th league. Seniors and veterans are no longer considered active footballers.
International teams (not from Switzerland) can apply for an accelerated game procedure upon request. This means; these teams are allowed to play through their games in two days so that their stay does not last longer than necessary. International teams that do not submit this request will be called up according to the official schedule. On request, we will also organize accommodation for international teams for a cheaper lump sum.
If a registered team withdraws before or during the season, the already paid authorization fee is forfeited. In the case of external influences such as; War, natural disasters or pandemics (Covid-19) where the League has to be canceled, the paid authorization fees will be refunded.
The following criteria are decisive for the routing:
- Higher score (3 point rule) - Better goal difference - Higher number of goals scored - Direct encounter
Win = 3 points, tie = 1 point, loss = 0 points
