Substitutions may be performed during ANY stoppage of play and are unlimited as long as the process conforms to FIFA Law and with the permission of the Referee

 

In the event of inclement weather or unplayable field conditions, the home team coach must notify the referee, all visiting coaches and the Match Coordinator of the game cancellation. Notification must be made a minimum of 2 hours prior to the scheduled kick off. Within the 2 hr timeframe preceding the game, only the referee may cancel the game. A canceled game must be rescheduled within 48 hrs.

Teams will have a 5-minute break before the first overtime. After the first overtime period, teams will change sides, with no break, and play the remaining overtime period. If the match is still tied after the two overtime periods, then penalty kicks (FIFA rules) will determine the winning team.

 

A send off (red card) will result in a minimum of a one (1) game suspension. A send off as a result of two cautions will result in the player or coach being suspended for the next match. All suspensions shall commence immediately. If a second game is to be played that day, the suspended player is not eligible and the referee should note it on the game card. The home team is responsible for informing the league that a red card infraction has occurred and the league will inform all parties affected the length of suspension. Referees will return all players/coaches passes to the teams and will list on the Game Card any send-offs with player/coach name and US Club Soccer number, and infraction. Referee will need to fill out a send off report and send it to NYCSL at kdebenedittis@justsaysoccer.com.
