In the event a referee is not on the field at game time, contact the league manager and begin to play the game as scheduled. We will try to reach the scheduled referee for an ETA. Please assign a contact at the field to maintain communication with the us until the problem is resolved, e.g. ref arrives, teams self officiate, etc.
In most cases your ref is running late, however, emergencies happen and your ref may be unable to get to the game. If your assigned referee is unable to get to the game we’ll try to find a substitute. If a substitue ref cannot be found continue to play, self officiate, and report the game score. We do not reschedule games due to a referee no show, your self officiated game is counted as a real game. The two teams will be credited the referee’s pay + an inconvenience credit for the game.
