Season 2021/22 – message from the UCFL Hon Sec
17/08/2021

(List of Referees - click here for referee contact information)

Now that most of our extended football family have blown away the cobwebs by competing in the very rewarding pre-season tournament just finished, we must all re-set and focus on the new season which starts on Saturday 21st August 2021. This entails a return to the regular structures that has underpinned the League for many seasons. I will elaborate on all these good habits for the benefit of all our new teams and indeed restate them for our existing teams.

Use of Match Reports section
12/07/2021

Our website has an area (“Match Reports”) for input of short match reports which we felt would be of general interest to many of our teams and would enhance the usefulness of the website as a source of information. To this end, we allowed our clubs direct access to enter such information themselves, with an understanding that no comments of a critical or derogatory nature would be made.

The committee was informed of some allegations relating to a particular match last Saturday and we are investigating these allegations under our standard disciplinary procedures.

Unfortunately, they were also inadvertently entered into the match reports section of our website. We have removed them now and we are also removing access to this section until further notice pending a review of how it should be used in future.

Procedures required for approval of friendly matches
11/07/2021

Teams often arrange friendly games at this time of year and are responsible for all aspects of the game’s organisation, among them finding a referee. However, they should obtain approval for these games beforehand for several reasons, not least because referees will need it in place for insurance purposes.

Set out below is a reminder of the procedures which should be followed in order to obtain approval for a friendly game:

1. The organising club should request permission to hold the friendly from its own League via the League Hon Sec giving details of the proposed match i.e. opposition, pitch and date. If any of these details change then a new permission must be sought.

2. The Hon Sec will then confirm the sanction of the stated fixture by email to the organising club, which should in turn make this authentication available for inspection by the referee. Our referees will be advised of our procedures.

3. The organising club should be a current member of the league and ensure that both clubs have the necessary public liability insurance in place.

Pre-season tournament - update
04/07/2021

With another round of games successfully completed on the first Saturday in July, the UCFL can state that we are very pleased with progress since the pre-season tournament kicked off on June 9. We hope all participating teams continue to enjoy the competition in the spirit of good communication and co operation displayed to date.

As most of you will be aware, we are targetting July 28 as the date for completion of all group stage games, with finals scheduled for August 7. Given this timeframe, it may not be possible to re-schedule games, especially as availability of referees may be an additional factor limiting our flexibility. We would ask that teams bear this in mind when preparing for games throughout the rest of July.

2021 pre-season tournament - Rules and Procedures
06/06/2021 (updated 09/06/2021)

[Update 09/06/2021: Ahead of tonight's kick-off, we would like to draw everyone's attention to Rule 4, permitting roll-on/ roll-off substitutions and Rule 7, which directs that a penalty shootout must take place after each drawn game, with the winner of the shootout being awarded an extra point in the Group competition (so the shootout winner receives two points in total for the game, with the shootout loser receiving one point for the draw in 90 minutes).]

With our pre-season tournament fast approaching, we would remind any participating teams which have not yet done so, to email the UCFL Hon Sec Paraic Treanor (paraic.treanor@ucfl.ie) confirming their wish to enter the tournament. Please do this now!

Tournament Rules & Procedures:

The committee have agreed a set of Rules governing the tournament and these can be viewed by clicking on the following link: 2021-22 Pre-Season Tournament Rules.

In addition, we would like to remind all teams, especially new teams, of the standard procedures ahead of each match:

The home team must contact the opposition and referee to ensure all is in order, give directions, check colours and any other items which may be relevant. Contact details can be found at the following links:

Teams: UCFL - Club Contact Details 2021/2022 (Based on information available to 05/06/2021)

Referees: Referees UCFL
