Clubs are required to use the CMS system to provide a roster for all league matches and provide a complete and accurate match report that includes player substitutions, red and yellow cards, and all points scored. Rosters should be provided a day in advance of the match, but can be modified on the day of the match. Match reports should be submitted within 3 days after the completion of the match. Saturday matches are to be reported by Tuesday.
All clubs have the right to confirm player identification with an ID check before the match or can request that paper copies of rosters and match reports be exchanged at the conclusion of the match.
Clubs that are found to be out of compliance with the CMS roster or match reporting requirements, the timelines, and/or by complaint filed by another club will have an administrative forfeit applied to the match.
CMS administrators can lock a match as soon as 3 days after the match concludes. No edits will be allowed to a locked match. This is especially important to consider for the teams that are the MAC seeds advancing beyond the MAC Championship, as the CMS system is used to confirm player eligibility.
Please reference the CMS Guidelines for suggested practices when using the CMS system for Roster and Match Reporting.
