2020 Easter Cup Competition Terms & Conditions

The aim of the 2020 Easter Cup competition is to provide players and families with an opportunity to participate in a fun and competitive football tournament just prior to the commencement of the CFC season.

To the best of our ability the tournament will be run as per our FAQ and tournament rules information. We do however reserve the right to modify rules and criteria where necessary for the benefit of a better tournament outcome as decided by the tournament organisers.

1.     PURPOSE

1.1. These Terms & Conditions (T&C) govern the management of the Easter Cup competitions, and should be read and applied in conjunction with the 2020 Easter Cup Rules of Competition (2018 Easter Cup ROC).  Teams (including all players and team managers) nominating and participating in a competition are deemed to agree to abide by the T&C and 2020 Easter Cup ROC.  In the event of inconsistency between these T&C and the 2018 Easter Cup ROC, the 2020 Easter Cup ROC shall prevail.


2.1. Easter Cup Competition Administrator, Chelsea FC  (CFC) will issue notices by email & telephone.  Team managers are required to provide at least one telephone number and valid email.  Team managers have full responsibility for promptly distributing notices or relevant information to teams. Notices issued by the CFC will be deemed to be received by team managers and CFC will not accept responsibility for teams not being advised of information in those notices.


3.1. All fixtures will be played under the 2020 Easter Cup ROC. Team managers and players should read and understand these rules.


4.1. CFC will accept registrations from teams only.

Team registration is via the prescribed online team booking registration form, completed and submitted prior to the nominated close-off times and with the required payments.

Acceptance of registration is at the discretion of CFC and conditional on applicants agreeing to pay the prescribed fees. Late team registrations may be accepted at the discretion of CFC.

4.2. Teams will not be eligible to compete unless their team registration has been accepted and approved by CFC and fees have been paid by 4.59 pm on 31st March 2020.

Full payments are required at the time of team registration.

Once the team registration form and the payment are received by CFC, the team manager will be required to complete a player registration form.

4.3. A team can have their team registration terminated and be ejected from a competition on disciplinary grounds or otherwise as determined by CFC.

4.4. By registering and completing payment, the team manager and players (including their parents where players are under 18 years) accept that planning and financial and other commitments are made by CFC in anticipation of the expected participation.  Given this, refunds are not available in all circumstances.  Refunds of team registration fees are available in limited circumstances as detailed below.

Withdrawal Status:                         Refund
Before 1 March 2020                     Full refund (less the booking fee)
Before 20 March 2020                   $100
After 20 March 2020                      No refund
Disciplinary Termination                 No refund


5.1. Proposed team names must be included on the team registration forms.  Names deemed to be offensive or in poor taste will be rejected by CFC.  If duplication or similarities occur priority will be given to the team which previously used that name.  If this situation does not apply, priority will be given to the nomination received first.


6.1. Teams must have a designated team manager and/or captain whose responsibilities include:

  • Ensuring team fees are paid by the due dates.

  • Participating in the coin toss prior to commencement of play.
  • The conduct of all team members during the course of the game.

7.1. The team manager or captain will be required to check the Match Record prior to start of each match, and ensure all players for that day are listed on the document.

Both team managers and captains are to sign the Match Record at the completion of the game as an indication that all match results are correct.

In the event of a dispute both team managers are still required to sign the match record. A note about the dispute should be made on the match record by the team manager making the dispute.

Only match result and player eligibility may be disputed, and will be determined by CFC.

  • the match being declared a 0-0 'No Result';
