General League Rules

- League matchdays are on Mondays and Wednesdays at 21 CET -

1.1 If at the end of the season, there is a tie in the tables. The order of the teams will be based on(in order) Goal Difference - Goals Scored - Head To Head Record.

1.2 It is the responsibility of the two captains to find an agreeable host for their match. Games can be played on any host as long as both captains agree to it. A team can not be forced to play on a host they do not wish to. If a good host for both teams cannot be found then teams are recommended to play 1 half on each other's host.
We also recommend to test each others host before the game starts.
A neutral host is someone who isn't part of a playing team. The country doesn't matter at all in this case. As long as it's a stable and fluent host both teams should play on it.

1.3 Subs can be only be made when a goal is scored/conceded or at half-time. Subs must not be made when the ball is in play.

1.4 A couple of subs are generally allowed in match rooms as long as both captains agree. If a captain asks the opposing team's players to leave the room then they must do so.
If subs are in the room then both teams should have the equal amount of subs.

1.5 Match rooms should be set to hidden and the link passed securely to the other team, preferably via TeamSpeak.

1.6 It is a captain's duty to ensure that all of his/her players are legitimate and not being impersonated. Any proof of impersonation will likely result in a defloss for the offending team.

1.7 Abuse of any kind during matches will not be tolerated. Abusive & disruptive messages being posted in the chat while the game is being played will not be allowed unless they are to discuss the game tactically itself. If you are being abusive or purposefully disruptive you may be punished.
Also abusive usage of the Pause-function e.g goal situations will not be allowed.

1.8 The only people who should have admin in an official room are the host and the two captains.

1.9 In the event of a player lagging or disconnecting, their captain is allowed to pause the game provided his/her team are not currently defending or the opposing captain gives permission for the game to be paused.

1.10 If a player disconnects they should be given a reasonable amount of time (~2 minutes is fair) to re-connect after the game has been paused. If they do not re-join after this length of time the team can make a sub to replace them.

1.11 Before resuming the game after a pause captains should ensure that the other team is ready.

1.12 Before kicking off at the start of a half the red team should give the blue team chance to get in position and state that they are ready.

1.13 A lag test should be done to see if the ping is fair for both teams. Both captains must agree to play the game before it can be started.

1.14 Once the half has been agreed to play by the captains, it will be played until the end of that half unless it is unplayable for the majority of both teams.
In the event of a host switch during a half, the game will continue with the remaining time and there won't be any effect on the score unless both teams agree on a reset. Should there be a host switch during the second half, the game will be continued with the remaining time and result staying the same unless both agree to reset the half. First half score will still be valid.

1.15 Goals scored after 7:00 do not count. The half lasts 7 minutes, not 7.01 minutes. The game is programmed in such a way that this shouldn't be an issue. If the goal is scored in time and the timer says 7:00, the game has another kick off and the timer always rolls back to 6:59. If it is not scored in time the game usually either begins overtime or ends stating the victorious team depending on the scoreline at the time.

1.16 A goal shall be credited to the offensive player who last touched the ball before it went into the goal. Obvious own goals will be credited as an own goal.

1.17 An assist shall be credited to the second-to-last offensive player to touch the ball before it went into the goal, provided that the ball was not played or possessed by any player of the defensive team between the time he last touched it and the goal being scored.

1.18 Players must always use their forum names when participating in official league & cup matches. Failure to do so may result in the fixture being voided or result being reversed. Should there be any doubts about player impersonation before the game starts, the player in question must confirm their identity on the forum chatbox.

1.19 Impersonating a player is not allowed and if caught doing so you will be banned from league participation for the rest of the season.

1.20 If a team can only provide three players, and they are out of wildcards or do not wish to use one, the match will be played 3v4.
You are allowed to play 3on3 (Fairplay mode) if the opponent agrees to it.

1.21 If a team can only provide two players(forcing a 4v2), and they are out of wildcards, the match will be forfeited 3-0.

1.22 After matches captains should post the replay along with goal times in the relevant thread in the "Utakmice".
Results must be delivered before next matchday. If the captain fails to do this then you will be warned and if this carries on then they will lose -1 point in the league table.

1.23 A replay of every game must be supplied for the result to count.
Failure to supply a replay will result in the match being valued as deflose for both teams.

1.24 All players participating in official league or cup matches have to be part of the Teams Roster.

League Match Format

2.1 League matches are 4v4 big, with two 7 minute halves and no score limit. Draws are allowed.

2.2 League matches are played with the 3-men-def-rule.

In the following rule descriptions: Team RED is defending and Team BLUE is attacking.

2.3 Some standard 3-def situations.

2.4 If team red/blue is attacking the 3-men-def-rule will be applied as soon as they enter the RED AREA (check rule 2.5 for RED AREA explanation). This means for the defending team, that they are only allowed to defend with 3 players (GK-DM-AM). This is excluding the striker of the defending team, who has to be behind opponent's DM with an appropriate distance anywhere on the pitch.(while being in defence)


2.5 The ST cannot intervene (attack, block, touch, be in front of) the DM at the left side of the RED AREA. You can intervene when the DM loses the ball or cannot keep control of the ball in the RED AREA. Also you are allowed to intervene when Team BLUE cannot keep ball under possession. If the ball gets to the right side of the RED AREA the ST is allowed to intervene and 3-def-rule won't be applied anymore. In this case it won't matter if team BLUE has possession.


Demonstration and some examples:
Example 1:

Example 2:

Example 3:

Strikers have to be cautious in some situations though:
Example 4:

Example 5:

Example 6:

2.6 In a special situation like a 4th player getting involved in the attack (mostly the GK) the 3-men-def-rule will be not applied, because it will turn into a 3vs4 situation. Once the gk is offering himself for a pass in the attacking zone, it turns into 3vs4. In this case the opponent's striker is allowed to help in defence to get an equal number for both sides.

2.7 In the case of situations where a captain feels the 3-man defence rule has been broken, they can submit the replay and the relevant times to an admin after the game or in the related matchday topic.
Small offences will be taken note of for future games; small but repeated offences may result in 1 game ban; a clear goal-scoring opportunity being blocked will likely result in a goal awarded to the attacking team.
In the event of serious repeated offences a defloss may be given to the offending team. It is up to the admins in the end.

2.8 League games should start at 21:00 CET, unless a different time has been agreed between the two captains.


3.1 Rosters must have minimum of 6 players and a maximum of 12 players.


4.1 Each team of Division1 has 5 league wildcards - they can use at any time during the season.
It will be up to the captain wanting to use the wildcard and the captain of their opponents to discuss a suitable date to replay the game. Once a suitable date is arranged the captain must report the date change in the Wildcard section.

4.2 You can not use a wildcard on the last game of your Teams Division. All final day games can not be postponed.
All wildcarded Matches have to be played on the last Matchday.

4.3 Wildcarded fixtures must be played within 3 Matchdays.
Example: Wildcarded Match of Day1 have to be played by the Date of Day4;
Wildcarded Match of Day2 have to be played by the Date of Day5; ...
Exception1: If the 3 Matchdays are devided by the Mid Season Break you have 2 weeks to play it.
Exception2: See Rule 5.3
Failure to play a fixture within this time will result in the game being voided and both teams having -3 added to their goal difference.

4.4 All fixture changes (wildcards) must reported by 20:00 CET. Failure to report a fixture change in time will result in the fixture going ahead anyway.

4.5 Once both teams agreed to play at one date, you cant cancel it anymore without opponents agreement. If you cant play the opponent can take a defwin.

Cuts, Signs and Trades

5.1 Free Agents have full control over which team they choose to play for. Once they are signed up on the Free Agency on the website, Captains can make offers to the player. It is entirely up to the player as to which team they sign for.

5.2 Players can only play for one team in each leg. Once a player played for one team, he cant play for any other team during these leg.

5.3 On match days a signing must be finalised before 20:00 CET for the player to be eligible for that night's games.

5.4 For postponed matches a sign must be finalised at any time before the game.

5.5 Cuts can be made at any point during the season.

5.6 A team can make unlimited cuts and signs throughout the season.

5.7 All signs and transfer changes need admin permission. A team cannot sign or trade players without admin permission.

Playoffs/ Relegations

6.1 The top 4 teams in division 1 will qualify to the Champions League (3 group stage spots, 1 qualification spot). However, this may change depending if the team has already got a CL spot. Also, for a team to enter the CL, they need to have 4 players in the squad that played for BosniaHax that season.

6.2 The bottom 2 teams in division 1 will be relegated to division 2. Playoffs for relegations may be announced. (From next season, when there will be second division)

6.3 The top 2 in division 2 will be promoted.

6.4 6.2 and 6.3 may change depending on league expansion/shrinking.


7.1 Impeaching your captain/manager is allowed but the whole team has to agree to it and has to agree on who the new captain will be. During an impeach until it is settled will result in the roster being locked meaning nobody can be cut/signed/traded during this time. If an impeach hasn't been settled in 1 week the captain/manager remains the same and roster is opened. Admin's have the final decision in an impeach.

7.2 Macro's are not allowed in the league and anyone caught using them will be suspended forever.

7.3 Anybody who multi-accounts(the multi will be deleted) will be suspended for 5 matches and then if repeated rest of the season and third time forever.

7.4 If a team recieves 3 deflosses, they will disband and all their games will be a 3-0 defloss. It is up to the admins in the end.

7.5 A div 1 team can be disbanded by the admins at any time of the season and all of their games will be valued as defwin for their opponents. They will not get replaced by another team.

DISCLAIMER: We reserve the right to modify, add and remove rules as we see fit during the course of the season. Rule changes, additions and removals will be posted in their own post(as well as being added to the first post) to give notification of the change, so make sure to read this if there is a new post as it may effect you during the season.

We also reserve the right to step in and block/deal with situations that may not technically be against the rules but could be seen as morally wrong and taking advantage.

Many thanks to the Feed Me Community for allowing us to use their rulebook.
